Surfing has always been attached with La Union. It was great to know that there are other attractions in the area on my recent brief sojourn around the province. I have to thank Thunderbird Poro Point Resort, La Union for sponsoring us on this familiarization trip around the area. This would be a real good guide on what to see and expect when going around La Union, beyond the surfing. Of course our home base was the Santorini-inspired resort.
