The top of this pilgrim mountain offers a view of the whole province of Pangasinan, as well as its neighboring province of Zambales. The long trek is certainly worth it for this sight to behold. On top is a replica of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil.

Tondol White Sand Beach has been heavily advertised and talked about when the conversation of tourist destinations in Pangasinan is brought up. Tourism for the town of Anda is still progressing, at this point, unlike other hotspots in Pangasinan.

This white sand beach offers a great view of the horizon and the perfect spot for sunbathing. The sun is always overhigh and scorching Anda that even locals naturally tan.

There are also the volleyball courts, hammocks, and cottages that can be used with your preferences.

Go on an adventure in Dasoland Family Theme Park

Dasoland Family Adventure Park is in the town of Dasol, Pangasinan. It is only a town away from Alaminos City, hosting the famed Hundred Island.

Ride along Daang Kalikasan

Daang Kalikasan is a scenic nature preserve along the Pangasinan-Zambales road that was only completed in January 2020. It didn’t become a tourist destination just until recently because of its completion. It traverses through the towns of Aguilar and Mangatarem in Pangasinan.

The beauty of Daang Kalikasan is unparalleled as you enjoy the view of the nature preserve.

It’s well-known for locals to ride their bikes or motorcycles along this road as they enjoy the calm breeze of nature. A lot of tourists also stop by this road to take aesthetic Instagrammable pictures against the beautiful scenery.

It definitely should be in the bucket list of everyone traveling around the country.

Catch and shop at the Pangasinan Trade Fair and Expo

This is the only activity in this list that is not available all year round. It only happens for a month-long period every year, along the Capitol of the province capital of Lingayen.

The Pangasinan Trade Fair and Expo is arranged by the provincial government and opens in the early days of April till the early days of May. It is opened as part of the celebration of Pistay Dayat (Sea Festival).

The Trade Fair is set up by the baywalk, overlooking the Lingayen Gulf and is best visited at night when shacks of colorful lights stand amidst the darkness. It’s almost a paradise on earth, really.

There are a lot of activities to do such as seeing the Bonzai exhibit or judging the gardening arrangement competitions, or sampling innovative traditional Pangasinan food, or eating food from a Banana leaf disposable plate, or enjoying the band that is playing that night.

These are all the fun activities that you can do in Pangasinan, as handpicked by a local who has been enjoying all these activities all her life. What are you waiting for? Travel to Pangasinan now.
