Mayon Volcano

Legaspi is home to the Mayon Volcano known for its famous perfect cone. Located in Daraga, Albay this volcano can be seen in its entire splendor by rising early at 7:00 am and jogging up to Lignon Hill. Legaspi is also home of the Cagsawa Church. The belfry tower is one of the famous landmarks in the Philippines. Volunteer guides are readily available to tell you gladly about the history of this beautiful structure.

By night, if you are trying to relax, go to Penaranda Park or Freedom Park. Albay Capitol Annex has several good places to eat and drink. Food trip? Try the Guinobatan longganisa with garlic fried rice and egg for breakfast and Adobong Bicol, pinangat (the Bicol version of laing) and Bicol Express for dinner. Try also the different varieties of pili nut candy- they’re addictive!

If planning to go out of town, try going to Legaspi which is best in the summer from March to May as it caters so much stuffs to enjoy during this season. Plan your summer trip for next year, take Legaspi as an option!
