La Union

La Union Cottage and Beach Resort
La Union
La Union, at the northern end of the Lingayen Gulf, is a thriving beach-resort area catering for Europian tourists and expatriate residents; its most popular beaches are around Bauang, just south of San Fernando. Most visitors do not seem to mind the 6 hr bus trip from Manila or the 2 hr down the mountain from Baguio. San Fernando airport is now open again.
Because of the considerable Chinese influence in this area, the Chinese restaurants are worth a visit. The Mandarin House on Quezon Avenue is good. San Fernando is noted for its seafood. The local delicacy, "jumping shrimp salad", is perhaps not for everyone: tiny shrimps are marinated alive in spiced vinegar and lime.
