By Air
Air travel is the quickest and most efficient way of getting to Ilocos Norte, but it is also the costliest. Cebu Pacific Air and Philippine Airlines offer one-hour flights from Manila Domestic Airport to Laoag Airport.

By Land
Traveling by bus is longer but more economical. The trip takes about 10 to 12 hours via bus lines like Florida and Partas, so it's best to pick a comfortable seat and bring essentials like food, water, and a travel pillow for the long haul.
Driving to Ilocos Norte cuts the 10 to 12-hour trip to nine hours if you take the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway.

How to Get Around
By Jeep
The jeepney is the cheapest mode of transportation and is highly recommended if you want to commute like a local in Ilocos Norte.
By Tricycle
For tourists, tricycles are the most popular means of getting around, especially when trying to get to the remote areas.
