(Eleventh of the La Union Series)

At the Poro Point Freeport Zone, a few kilometers from downtown San Fernando, is the luxurious Thunderbird Resorts and Casino. There was no plan of checking in because of time and budget constraints, but the curiosity about this highly acclaimed resort had to be killed—at least with a glimpse of what it looks like from the outside.

Photos are enough in the meantime. Next visit, the taste of luxury will finally be real.
