Thunderbird Resorts: Another Reason to Love Northern Philippines

From the ten bloggers who were invited to the three-day immersion at Thunderbird Resorts Poro Point, I was the only one whose roots are from La Union.  But I find it funny because even though I spent my teenage years there, I know nothing about the rich history and captivating places in La Union.

I have no idea that surfing was a trending sport in my lolo's hometown, and that I can find a Santorini-inspired beach hotel in its capital, San Fernando City.   See? I am a stranger to my own land!

But thank, God! We're given the squeak to experience La Union through Thunderbird Resorts Poro Point.

Here's a sneak peek of the bloggers' food and travel adventures:

Sushi-Sashimi Combo at Vegas Cafe
The Dome
View of South China Sea
The Cliffs Golf Course

Pindangan Ruins
Ma-Cho Temple
Our Lady of Namacpacan Church

Have you noticed anything?  Not all of these pictures are taken from Thunderbird Resorts property.  Some were from our visit to the city.  And that's the most fun thing of all!!! When staying at Thunderbird Resorts Poro Point, they will not just let you experience their world-class facilities and amenities, but they will also let you create new experiences outside the Mediterranean-inspired property.

I love Northern Philippines more!!!
