Ilocos Norte: Patapat Viaduct

Located in the municipality of Pagudpud in the province of Ilocos Norte, Patapat Viaduct is a concrete coastal bridge that connects Ilocos Norte to the province of Cagayan.
Patapat Viaduct
Patapat Viaduct is the fourth longest bridge in the Philippines. The bridge measures roughly around 1.3 kilometers long. It is elevated 31 meters above sea level. Aside from that, the bridge is said to be the northernmost bridge in the Philippines.

Anyone planning to visit Ilocos Norte, especially Pagudpod, should take time to visit this architectural structure. Trust me, the bridge would present a beautiful backdrop to your photos.

Great for backdrops.
What I like about Patapat Viaduct is the scenic environment around it. The view of the bridge snaking towards the area of Cagayan is truly amazing, not to mention the relaxing atmosphere brought by the sounds of the waves lapping to the coast of Ilocos Norte.

The bridge gives you a great view of the sea.
With my visit to the 4th longest bridge in the country, I'm hoping that one day I would be able to come up with a blog about the 10 longest bridges in the Philippines.

4th longest huh? We tried walking it from one end to another. 
Getting there by land: 

There are bus lines that offer daily trips bound directly to Pagudpud. It's an 11 to 12 hour trip, but it sure is cheaper than taking a plane to Laoag City then hopping on a bus to reach Pagudpud.

Getting there by air: 

Most airline companies offer daily flights to Laoag City. From Laoag City hop on a bus bound for Pagudpud. Although this option is quite expensive, this trip would only take 2-3 hours of your time to travel to Pagudpod.
