[DAGUPAN, PANGASINAN, PHILIPPINES] ► When you meet a friend who belongs to a certain genus where you also belong, it's unforgiving. You think in the same wavelength. You laugh with common denominator. You talk in the same frequency. And when the trigger is activated, the activity could be endless. So this is what happened to me in Dagupan. I self-declared I'm stranded. I made myself believe that the last bus out of Dagupan is gone; and that I have to catch the next bus the next day.

#DAGUPAN


Each individual is unique but there are certain areas of our existence where subgroups of people dwell. So in Dagupan, I met a fellow blogger I've already met a few years back in Vigan (and yes we belong to a subgroup and subculture). It's a long story worthy for a separate post but to cut the story short, the trigger was activated so the conversation was infinite and I have to stay overnight in Dagupan because as I've said, I made myself believe that the last bus out of Dagupan is gone so that I'll have a reason to stay in Dagupan overnight.

This post is actually not about wavelengths, frequencies, triggers and friendships. It's about this hotel where I stayed in Dagupan for a night because I needed a place to sleep. 

Hotel Le Duc is the name of the hotel and I'm posting a review here for your reference. Of course, I would also like to recommend this hotel whenever you visit Dagupan.

Hotel Le Duc is located in Tapuac District in Dagupan City adjacent to the Lyceum-Northwestern University. Its blue color is so noticeable from the road so you won't get lost. Their staff had an excellent service in my case.

The spacious room where I stayed is equipped with a hot and cold shower, television set and closets to organize your stuff. You get what you pay and it's a good value for your money. I posted more photos below for your reference.
