Abra Province Tourist Spots
Abra is one of the provinces composing the Cordillera Administrative Region in Northern Philippines. The capital town is Bangued which sits along the mighty Abra River. It has 27 municipalities in all with 303 barangays. Although Abra has low-lying plains, most of it consists of towering mountain ranges. Mossy and pine forests cover much of these mountains. From these, rivers and streams emanate and feed the Abra River.
The locals speak Ilocano, Isneg, and Tinguian languages. They are also fluent in English and Filipino. But if you want to build rapport with them, you might want to slowly learn the local languages.
The province has a population of more than 241 160 as of 2015. Most of them composed of ethnic groups inhabiting the hinterlands. A significant portion of the population are migrants from the lowlands.
