Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

When I was looking for interesting places to visit, one of the front desk agents advised me to stay away from this, and told me that it was totally not worth it; so, I followed her advice and never went on this ride.

Visite de 35 minutes environ.
100 pesos par personne et moitié prix pour les enfants.
Le bateau va 7/8 minutes dans un sens et revient à son point de départ pour repartir dans l'autre sens. On voit des filets ou les pêcheurs élèvent des poissons. Mais on voit rien en fait. Juste des filets .
Bref rien à voir.

Honestly, could the operators of this so called "Cruise" make any less effort if they tried? Piped music interspersed with a couple of stops at some cement dioramas of historical characters dotted along the otherwise uninteresting river bank and that was about it.
Very cheap but really a bit of a waste of time.

You get on the one boat they have that's working, they turn on the audio recorded voice over Filipino folk songs, and that is your tour guide throughout the 30 minute cruise. Takes about 10 minutes to one side of the river to see the "first stop" where some cement statues stand, and the tape talks about the beginning of commerce along the river. Another 10-15 to the other end of the cruise for two more "stops" informing us of the old culture and families of Vigan. You stay on the boat which is a good thing really, any more effort and you would complain. Good thing the tour is cheap, but it is a waste of time. Hope the local tourism sector improves the river cruise, and Vigan tourism in general, to make the long trip from Manila worthwhile.

This is not about the River Cruise, or any other specific activities being offered in the city: it is about the cluster of old structures in what is called "The Heritage". I normally just stay in my room when I travel, most of which are professional speaking engagements. i'd rather read brochures about the place and that is enough for me: I know the place already, without the hassles, risks of travel required, and yes, the costs. I didn't have enough money for leisure, and time. Coffee, online poker, and cigarets complete my free time. A few destinations would catch my attention, of course. that means I have the time.
Last August it was Vigan up North. The place caught my mood to take a look to see and feel its ambience. I was, and still is, fascinated by what I saw and felt. Perhaps the free A-con bus shuttle from the Laoag City Airport was a humdinger, a real good sign of things to come.
Vigan City was home to Spanish settlers, conquistadores, if you may. The cobble-stoned old streets are lined up with old structures (residences before) depicting the era when they were built. Walls were, or are, of bricks; windows, of wood and capiz shells. Doors are huge and are of sturdy mahogany. I have stayed in one of the house there more than twenty years ago and I am sure their interiors are still more of the same: thick slabs of wood darkened by time and but shiny with dedicated and committed polishing. Since these types of houses are used in so many local horror movies, I can still remember the shivers and images I felt and imagined during quiet evenings lit only by a faint moon and kerosene lamps during the first trip I mentioned earlier. It is different now.
The souvenir shops are still a joy to tourists. The old grandeur still pulsates but there is something new: a lot of the houses are now hotels that still flash the old home feeling. There is another: fast foods and Restos have crept into the place. Renovated and painted with pastel colors, these cafes and diners breathed in a certain youth, a feeling of freshness, a motion through time. The same architecture was maintained, a very successful effort as it provided a time travel - back to when they were newly-built but existing in the present time. But not all structures are lucky. Some were left to, and for, time to take its natural course of rise and fall - a pitiful sight, but would be a joy to those looking for the authentic "old" feeling. These are decaying, abandoned, interspersed with the "lucky" ones. One may feel, when face-to-face with them, like standing in from of battle-scarred veterans of many wars, waiting for the final trip to where everything came from. Then your emotion may still catch a "tickle" which for me is another beautiful dimension of the "The Heritage" as it is called. These unkempt veterans lend a captivating contrast, and build a silent, unseen stage with a daily bill of the struggle between the spirits of the past echoing, narrating its stories, and a very careful, graceful, deliberate monologue of the touch of modern living. A well-chose time, matched with an "open soul", will be gifted with that discovered sensation, which I had the luck to behold and receive. It was an evening walk and a very early stroll that provided the best seat to watch and experience that "stage", the perfect moment. The streets are lit with a brilliance that is also cozy, and lends a happy, fiesta, a festive mood sans the usual crowd tired and sleeping. The wee-hour walk was a contrast. The streets were quiet, empty, and look tired and weary as in most morning-after moments. The lights were still there but the sky slowly turning blue painted a greyish spectacle. The old spirits were back, resting for another evening. I felt the sighs, the moans of the place. While the The Heritage ought to stay, like people growing old and tired of the long years of facing the burden of time, the struggles of existence - they also must be put to rest. It seemed that that will never happen. Not with the entrepreneurial encroachment. The great business opportunities will prolong their agony. Like grandchildren taking care of their Lolas and Lolas (grandparents), like replacing their old worn-out legs and other parts of their weary bodies, like suspending their death, and like giving them a certain degree of immortality.
That is what I saw and felt. A bridge between the past and the present. A lucky stroke of fate to a place also built from a blending of two different cultures. One built a bridge to cross harshly over the other. You may also experience these in those old streets of the great heritage of Vigan City.

This tour was so bad, my husband and I couldn't stop laughing. Led by a silent, stone-faced guide who let the poorly recorded audio tour do the crackling, err, talking, we were taken down a dirty channel with concrete banks and little to see, save the odd hastily erected statue or plaque, so obviously in place just for this purpose. It was indeed the worst tour of our lives but we love Filipinos so much, there's no way we could begrudge them!

Been to Loboc river cruise in Bohol. Very clean river, good food, superb entertainment, great value for money. The mangrove eco-tour in Palawan and that of Bais were both enriching. The Day-asan floating village boat cruise was adventure-filled while the Suyac Island mangrove experience was relaxing. The Mekong Delta tour in Vietnam and the river cruise in Cambodia were both interesting and educational. The Kampong Ayer river cruise in Brunei was exhilarating.
Vigan River Cruise on the one hand was very disappointing.
The lady in-charged of the tour was polite and apologetic for any short-coming. There were just so many concerns that need improvement. First, the berthing place was a makeshift way below tourism standards. There was a resto-bar that looked abandoned, comfort room had no water. There were about 4-5 boats docked but only one was working. It took a while before the boatmen can start the motor of our boat; there was no 'music' they say; it was the audio recording that interprets the meaning of stations along the river. Poorly maintained.
The tour goes along the Mestizo River, an important trade route (they say) during the Spanish era, hence its historical significance. I wonder how wide and deep the river then was considering that galleon trade used to ply along this line. The river now is shallow and narrow, water was dirty, especially at the downstream side where fish pens are plentiful in complete disarray. People living along the river banks contribute to what the Mestizo River has become. It saddened me to see a river this bad! This is something tourists should not see.
The upstream side is a little better, with protection dike being constructed on the one side. There is a road, although not yet fully develop, I hope will prevent future settlements along the river banks. Dredging is on going but it would take some time before we see improvements. For now, the river cruise was a total waste of time and money. Not worth a penny.
