TESTIMONIALS

As the trip progressed strangers became friends. Particularly special was the effortlessness: perfect logistics, never having to worry about anything, and, of course, the charming and thoughtful way you organised everything.
Selected testimonials from the Aman Jet Journey, March 2016

Vigan

The historic city of Vigan, Philippines, is lined with cobblestone streets and charming architectural structures that date back to the Spanish colonial times. Indeed, the city has achieved UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Though once an island, separated by the Mestizo River, Vigan is now officially a part of Luzon island, now that the river has silted over. The city was once a well-known trading port for gold and exotic Asian goods from China, before being captured by the Spanish in the late 16th century.

The city is made of a combination of rolling hills in the south, and plains in the west that border the South China Sea. The lands outside of the city center are mainly used for agriculture. The picturesque Mindoro Beach is only a short cycle away.

Vigan is a small city that has wonderful shopping and recreational areas. It is quite tourist-friendly, with ATMs and banks accepting international cards, as well as internet cafes, restaurants with WiFi, and provincial tourist information points. Two nearby airports serve the city, making it easily accessible.
