La Union Nomads

La Union Sun and Sets

La Union is the official ‘Hipster’ capital of the Philippines and the un-official surfing center, despite the fact that most seasoned surfers would be very disappointed by the surfing breaks here. This is a great place to be if you are a back-packer looking to meet other back-packers in the Philippines, as well as meet the ‘hipster’ scene from Metro Manila.

Located about 8-9hrs north of Metro Manila by coach from Cubao La Union, like Baguio is difficult to reach Metro Manila and return within one day. However, the overall vibe in La Union is very laid back and chilled and because of all the tourists coming here from Manila there are plenty of facilities catering to the needs and wants of Digital Nomads.
