Patapat Viaduct, The Road on the Edge

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

According to Wikipedia, “The Patapat Viaduct is a viaduct at the municipality of Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte, a coastal resort town on the northernmost tip of Luzon Island in the Philippines.

The bridge is elevated 31 meters over sea level. It is a concrete coastal bridge 1.3 km long and connects the Maharlika Highway from Laoag, Ilocos Norte to the Cagayan Valley Region. It rises along the town's coastal mountains, which is the starting point of the Cordillera Mountain Range that snakes through Northern Luzon. It is the 4th longest bridge in the Philippines.”

I’m so behind my posts I resorted to copy-pasting entries from online encyclopedias. Hahaha.


I did remember thinking that this is perhaps the reason why Bongbong Marcos won as senator in spite of his family’s dark past. How they had turn Ilocandia into one of the most beautiful provinces in the country is remarkable. No one can deny that Ilocos is a veritable tourist destination.

Cheers to the next adventure!
