THUNDERBIRD RESORT

Im always fond of checking new places and reading blogs.  Nung una ko pa lang makita ang Thunderbird resort in poro point, San Fernando, La Union.. gustong gusto ko na cyang puntahan. Kasi matutupad ang isa sa mga pangarap ko ang makarating sa Santorini, Greece..  This resort was inspired by this place.  Ang kulay na makikita mo, majority was white and blue.  As i read through each blog, lagi ang comment was it was Expensive!! im a budget traveler and i do not entertain anything expensive. So hinayaan ko na lang na isnabin pansamantala ang lugar na ito, until i saw the movie "other woman"..

Korni kung iisipin but this movie gave me an inspiration to explore the place.. NOW NA!!! a week after i watched that movie, i found myself in the streets of San Fernando, La Union...  A trip that i've been dying to have for months.. now malapit na cyang magkatotoo =) 

My bestfriend for so many years joined me on this trip, and i just can't complain..  she was an amazing companion.. lahat ng trip ko sinasakyan nya.. i just love my bessy so much.. hehehhee

I only have  a week to plan this trip, so first thing in mind.. DO THEY HAVE A DAY TOUR?.. good thing si bessy nakapunta na sa lugar na to and she only spent like 2hrs and paid 1000php.. so ok lang cya if she'll have another day tour with me.  I emailed them and asked about the day tour she said "Our day tour is open from 8AM-5PM daily. Adult charge is Php 1,000.00 nett with Php 750.00 worth of food and beverage consumable. Children 12 years old and below will be charge Php 500.00 with Php 350.00 worth of food and beverage consumable. Please be informed that our day tour use is only for a maximum of 5 hours."...   Naloka ako 5hrs for 1000php..  it should be WORTH IT!!

I can say naman that it was WORTH IT!! staying and experiencing thunderbird resort was one of the best resort trip ever!!! ang ganda ng lugar, freshness ang hangin, ang ganda ng pool, ang bait ng staff, ang sarap ng food (pricey siya pero masarap), ang ganda ng sunset, sarap mgmoment, sarap matulog, ang gaganda ng mga pix ko dun, ang daming cuties hahahahaha!!!!

Wala me masabi.. number one ang Thunderbird Resort.. i would recommend it for lovers and for those peeps na nais magkaroon ng katahimikan kahit saglit. Believe me I found peace in this place =)

 Nung nagpunta kami ni bessy.. sa amin ang pool na ito




 this was worth 800++ .. sarap nung dip =)

 I LOVE SUNSET!!  peace at last!!!

  8. Hi,
    If ur gonna play casino check this link for free shuttle service http://www.thunderbird-asia.com/fiesta-casinos/poro-point/casino-shuttle

    But if di ka naman mag casino, sa downtown ng san fernando, ride a tricycle, mabilis lang un mga 15 to 20 mins ride lang.. Fare around 50 to 70 php..

    Happy Travels!!!
