“Sinking indeed!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

This is inlcluded on our tour of Laoag. Indeed, it is sinking, but they didn't allow people to go inside. Understandable, but the tourism could be improved though. They might as well widen the area of isolation so that people can take a good photo with it. :D

“sinking tower in the middle of the city”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

the sinking bell tower is located within the city which is great. it is just a walking distance from our hotel. but the surrounding area area is actually a commercial place. such a busy place. it was hard to take pictures.

“this can be improved ...”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

it is centrally located but it is difficult to take a good photo as the area is "soiled" with electric wires and signages. one really needs to brave the traffic to have a good shot. this is a challenging site to restore but i am sure something can be done to make it better.

“Laoag's sinking Bell Tower updated 2013”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

the are around the sinking bell tower adjacent to St. William's Cathedral has been cleared and the governement under Gov. Imee Marcos has made way for new school buildings to be constructed around it. there still is a need to renovate/repair the tower itself as well as the gravely ground but the improvement is slowly taking shape. it's easy to go to the newly opened shopping centers (Hypermart, Pure Gold & SM Save More) and the cathedral from here as well as to the Tobacco Monument and Capitol building,
