Paoay Sand Dunes: 4x4 ride & Sand boarding

Because I'm kinda bias, I made a separate post for this. =) Obviously, this was my favorite part of our entire Ilocos adventure. Others may not consider this as their favorite but I doubt if they didn't even enjoy a bit of the experience. It was an entirely different experience. It's not everyday that you'd get a chance to ride this type of 4x4 vehicle with those sand and in uneven surface where the vehicle would climb an extremely high dune and in a second goes down again, all in high speed. I cannot describe enough what we exactly felt with the 4x4 experience but it is closely like WOOOOAAAAAHHHH and WAAAAAAAHHHHH. =))

Good thing I didn't come few years back because this 4x4 experience and sand boarding is not popular enough for everyone to consider this as a must try activity. It is not actually included in the tour package we had but ahead of time, we asked if we can go sand boarding and we'll just pay for how much it requires. Thank God for awesome "tour mates" who all are always game for everything.

Rates: Php2500 per 4x4 vehicle ; maximum of 6 persons. ; includes 30 minutes 4x4 ride with 3 stops to enjoy the view, the last is for sand boarding.
 Looks a lot like toy cars

After shouting our lungs out the entire 4x4 experience, sand boards are up! Scary dahil sobrang matarik pa yung pinili ng guide namin but eventually, you'll get to enjoy the experience! It was as fun as surfing and wakeboarding. No need to worry if you'll get knocked down, the sands are fine and soft =)
Here am I, getting ready
Happiness! =))
Here are some videos para sa ikaliligaya ng lahat =))))
Eto ang masarap balik-balikan!! 
If you'll travel to Ilocos, don't ever miss this experience! It was really really great!! =)
Just to mention what he had after our energies were drained....


Check in after giving out all our energy for the 4x4 ride and sand boarding. Sabi ni Kuya Rey (our driver), kalahating hotel, kalahating churva-han daw to. If you know what he means... But infairness naman, malinis at maayos, di halata =))
