Ilocos Norte: Bangui Wind Farm

Located in the municipality of Bangui in the province of Ilocos Norte, Bangui Wind Farm is a row of 20 wind turbines stretched along the nine-kilometer shoreline of Bangui Bay.

Bangui Wind Farm
These 230-foot tall Vestas V82 wind turbines generate enough electricity to supply a huge portion of Ilocos Norte. Not only that, Bangui Wind Farm also serves as one of the newest tourist magnet for the province. Professional and amateur photographers would surely agree with me when I say that the neatly arced row of wind turbines serves as a great backdrop to any photo ranging from prenuptial to wacky pictures.

I hope our electric fan is this big.

Jogging time!

For me, Bangui Wind Farm symbolizes the continuous improvement of the province of Ilocos Norte. With it strategically placed in Bangui -not only does it help the towns folks save on electricity bills, it also helps them earn more from tourism.

Check out the souvenirs! 
Looks like:
The windmills of Netherlands.

Minus:
The flowers and the long history behind them.

Getting there:


Hop on a Florida Bus heading straight to Pagudpud. Tell the conductor to drop you off at the municipality of Bangui. From there you could rent a tricycle to bring you to the giant windmills. The tricycle driver could charge you from 50 to 100 pesos. Don't entertain them if it costs more than that.
