La Union is a province of the Philippines located in the Ilocos Region in Luzon. Its capital is San Fernando City and borders Ilocos Sur to the north, Benguet to the east, and Pangasinan to the south. To the west of La Union is the South China Sea.
The economy is diversified with service, manufacturing, and agricultural industries spread throughout the province. The Port of San Fernando operates as an increasingly active shipping point, and the former American airbase Wallace Air Station, having been converted into a business and industrial area, helps to facilitate such commercial activity.

Tourists often flock to the beaches of Bauang, or to the more secluded ones further north for snorkelling, surfing or other water sports; the more northerly beaches near San Juan specifically cater to both local surfers as well as portions of the world surfing circuit.

Like most of the region, the province is squeezed in by the Cordillera mountain range to the east and the South China Sea to the west. Yet, unlike other portions of Luzon and the Philippines' two other island groupings, the Visayas and Mindanao, La Union experiences a rather arid and prolonged dry season with little precipitation to be expected between the months of November and May.

San Fernando City is a 1st class city in the province of La Union, Philippines. It is the capital city of La Union and the regional center of the Ilocos Region (Region I). According to the 2000 census, it has a population of 115,650 people in 20,755 households.

San Fernando is the financial, industrial and political centre of the province, engaged in agriculture, aquaculture, shipping using the port of San Fernando, and other industrial sectors.

Bauang is a 1st class municipality in the province of La Union, Philippines. It is bordered by San Fernando City to the north, Caba to the south, Naguilian to the east, and the South China Sea to the west. According to the 2000 census, it has a population of 63,373 people in 12,298 households.

McArthur Highway runs through this town junctioning with Naguilian Road, one of the mountain roads into Baguio City.

Paringao is a baringay of Bauang, it is situated halfway between San Fernando City and Bauang and is split by the National Highway.

Being a beach village, it's main income comes from the sea, whether it be the fishing boats going about their daily business or the tourists that come for the beachside resorts and the tropical weather.
