Known as the surfing capital of the North, Elyu has become more popular among tourists in Luzon as you only need a car or bus ride to get here. La Union is one of my favorite places in the Philippines and in fact, the last one I visited, a day before lockdown.
How To Get Here? DIY:
1. Go to Partas Terminal in Aurora, Cubao
2. Get a queueing number, once called, it’s the only time you can purchase a ticket – we went here at 12 AM and booked a bus at 2AM (Friday)
3. San Juan is La Union’s main tourist area, Partas buses directly goes to Urbiztondo (7-Eleven) which is centerpoint of the area.

A weekend trip to remember, #LaUnion never fails to amaze me. The beach, the cafes, the bars and the people. If you need an escape, #Elyu is the place to be.
