Patapat Viaduct is the 4th longest bridge in the Philippines. This bridge got a cool view since it is installed along the coastal side of the mountain. This bridge snake from Cordillera mountain going to through Northern Luzon. It is a concrete coastal bridge 1.3 km long and connects the Maharlika Highway from Laoag, Ilocos Norte to the Cagayan Valley Region. The bridge was initially constructed to solve frequent landslide in the area. Causing frequent motor accident. This bridge helped motorist and gave tourist a great view of Pasaleng bay.

This bridge have become one of the tourist spot of Pagudpud. Its unique view of mountain x bridge x mountain gave it an ideal picturesque scenery. Also love the clean road that is also ideal for the mandatory jumpshot hehehe. Just be extra careful from time to time there are fast moving cars and trucks. I just love how this man made bridge was made more than 30 years ago. Just show how capable Filipinos are. Slowly we are progressing again. Hope it would continue that we might reach greater heights.

Overall don't miss a stop on this bridge when you go for an Ilocos trip.

I admit, at first, I didn't see the point in seeing Patapat Viaduct. I mean it's just a bridge what could be special about it? Then we went there and saw why it's a popular tourist spot in Ilocos Norte. It is a coastal bridge that connects Ilocos Norte and Cagayan Valley. We almost skipped the opportunity to put off in the area and take pictures but when Kuya Vincent took us there, we were off the van in a heartbeat. The Patapat Viaduct offers a spectacular view of the Pasaleng Bay and the Cordillera mountain.

Our 5th itinerary for our 2nd day of our Ilocos Trip was at Patapat Viaduct, is a viaduct at the municipality of Pagudpud Ilocos Norte. One of the famous bridge in Ilocos. It's bridge is elevated 31 meters over sea level. It connects the Maharkika Hi-way from Laoag to Cagayan Valley Region. Many tourists stops here to have a picture at the middle of the bridge just like what we did.

It's the fourth longest bridge in our country. The Patapat viaduct does not just give motorist fantastic view of the beach but it also solves the problem of landslides, causing major vehicular accidents in the area.

It is said that it is one of the projects of the Marcos. By the way Patapat means "belt" in Ilokano. Thank you to Ilocos Heritage Tour for bringing us here and able to see a magnificent view of the South China Sea.

A must see place in Pagudpud Ilocos.

If you want to be able to see the South China sea and the Pacific ocean in one place, you're in the right area. :-)

It takes a while to decide whether to take that drive north, knowing that it's 900kms per way and the Philippine highway isn't really the best.

But I heard about this place and decided that I have to see this for myself.

You tune the radio slowly and you can hear the Taiwanese radio stations, the wind is strong but fresh.

How can you not love the scenery?! Everybody should go to the northernmost bridge in the Philippines. Gets me even more intrigued to go to Batanes!

Wow! Just wow! I was so mesmerize despite the fact that it was very windy and a bit of rainy when we got here last December. We still enjoyed the place and took lots of pictures and the "buwis buhay" jump shots! One of my buddy wanted to take a photo of me but I told him "nahihiya ako. Hihi" pero di sya naniwala. He even answered me with, "diba kagabi mo pa sinasabi na 'pangarap' mo to? Kunyari ka pa!" Haha!

Patapat Viaduct was one of our destinations when we had our Ilocos tour.

I was actually worried when our van stopped by the side of the road. Who freakin' stops in a highway right???

We got out anyway and started taking photos of the breathtaking view of Paseleng Bay (below the viaduct).

It was really windy when we got here so I had to fix my hair a lot (hassle). Aside from that, the experience was great since I've stepped on the northest landmass of the Philippines. You heard that right. Pagudpud is the northest part and not Aparri. I have strong faith in our tour guide.

Not really the best photo of the viaduct. But going here is a must when you're in Pagudpud. Make sure to take jump shots and group shots when you're in the middle of the highway! 128124🔚128565128663128667128666128665
