Where to Eat, Sleep and Drink Coffee in Abra

Bangued has a nice selection of affordable places to stay, but as it’s only a small provincial town the number of beds are limited. When you plan your trip to Abra it is very advisable to book your accommodation ahead. But as Abra is becoming more popular as a tourist destination, there are more accommodations opening up to cope with the demand for more rooms.

Abra has a range of hotels to suit most budgets, from backpacker budget to exclusive accommodation. Outside of Bangued in the more rural areas and uplands accommodation is very limited. It is best to ask advice if you wish to locate outside the main areas of Bangued, Calaba and Tayum.
