WHERE TO STAY
There are several choices of accommodations when planning for a getaway in La Union - from high budget to budget-friendly accommodations. The place where we stayed at was somewhere in the middle. But it wasn't really the budget we were considering here. Guess what was the factor that we considered in booking an accommodation for this trip?? The place should be instagram-worthy!! Here goes the instagram-conscious in us. HAHAHA! And so we found Flotsam and Jetsam Artist Beach Hostel. Is it really instagram-worthy? Just check the photos below and see for yourself. :))
Besides the artistic side of the hostel, it was really a nice place to chill.
Flotsam and Jetsam at night..
We had free breakfast as part of the accommodation. Unli bread, cereals, coffee, tea and milk!! :)) My favorite Honey Stars cereals!!!
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Flotsam and Jetsam. I think most of our time were spent chillin' here than swimming in the beach. Haha! Also, their rooms and comfort rooms are clean! We would like to thank the coolest hostel manager, Ate Din (girl in yellow shirt) for being so accommodating. :)
WHERE TO EAT
From accommodation, let's move to some food recos.We tried three restos and I can say that all these three are must try when in La Union.
This would probably one of the most recommended food places in La Union because whenever we ask people, "where can we eat here in LU?" Surf Shack is always first on their list.
Ambiance: 810 (al fresco dining)
Price: Mid to high budget

Vegetarian Pasta (hashtag healthy living kunwari hahaha)
Triple Grilled Cheese Sandwich..
Midway Grill reminded me of Baguio's 50's Diner but when it comes to food, I have to give it to Midway Grill.
