Whenever our family goes to northern Luzon during our vacations, we make it a point to pass by the Ma-Cho Temple in La Union to light three incense sticks and offer a prayer of thanks to Ma-Cho (媽祖). During me and my friends’ surfing trip to San Juan, I asked them to add a visit to the Ma-Cho Temple in our itinerary.
Even for the non-believers, the temple is worth visiting because of the majestic architecture and beautiful gardens.

How to get there from San Fernando
Option 1: Take a tricycle from the San Fernando Plaza. It costs PhP 30 for one tricycle back in 2012.
Option 2: Take a jeep going to Bacnotan, San Juan. Ask the driver to drop you at the temple gates.
