PHILIPPINES : BICOL for ADVENTURE - Legazpi City, Albay





If you are looking for a great adventure, this place will give you the whole package. There are a lot of things you can do here in Legazpi City, Albay. Aside from just looking at the magnificent Mayon Volcano, you can actually ride an All-terrain vehicle to get closer at the Mayon. If you are to ride this adventure to Albay, you should try their traditional dishes and delicacies: the Bicol Express, Laing and their famous halo-halo at DJC!



MAYON VOLCANO

6 in the morning shot

Grab a cup of coffee, stand outside the balcony, feel the cold morning air, and gaze at this wonderful creation of God. It feels surreal.


DARAGA CHURCH

This church is also called The Church of Nuestra Senora de la Porteria (Our Lady of the Gate).  It is one of the oldest and historical churches in Albay, and now declared a Cultural Treasure by the  National Museum.  You can also see a nice view of the Mayon Volcano on the left side of the church. 



CAGSAWA RUINS

When the Mayon Volcano erupted, the  Cagsawa Church got destroyed and this bell tower was the only part of the church left standing until now.



ZIP LINE at LIGNON HILL
Hi there Mayon!





HOYOP HOYOPAN CAVE

This cave is actually one of the best! It's very clean and you can just enjoy the cold air. There are lots of amazing stalagmites and stalactites formation. If you have a wild and creative imagination, this place will creep you out. 


SEXY ONLY
If you surpass this narrow exit, you are a certified sexy human being, according to the tour guide.
 I'm sexy and I know it!!!





ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLE
LAVA WALL ADVENTURE

There's a  place near Cagsawa Ruins where in you can rent an ATV.

This trip lasts for 2 to 3 hours.




LAVA WALL
              We looked like Angry birds because of our helmets, but wth, we are having fun





The best part of the ATV Lava Wall Adventure was when it rained but we still wanted to move forward. Seeing my parents and baby sister enjoying this made me feel like we could have more adventures like this. I want to see them come out of their nutshells; that there is life outside their office and being stressed by their jobs isn't the only thing in their life.

This picture was taken by our tour guide. We actually got stuck because of the big rocks on the stream. My socks and shoes got really wet, and I hate it. But, it was fun after all!



MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

Together as family, we can do anything! Proud to say that we are standing at the foot of the Mount Mayon on that picture!

Too bad it rained - the Mayon Volcano got wrapped by clouds.




I would like to recommend the Oriental Legazpi Hotel because of its accessibility to anywhere you'd like to go around Legazpi City. Get the room that you can see the Mayon Volcano from your balcony. Click here for The Oriental Legazpi Hotel
You might also want to go to Kawa Kawa Hill and Mayon Skyline. We went there, but I don't have good pictures because it really rained. 



LAING

It is really different from the Laing here in Manila.

It is really delicious.
BICOL EXPRESS (Sibid Sibid Restaurant)

This is the yummiest Bicol Express ever. 





FAMOUS HALO-HALO at DJC

The cheese! Better than Razon's!
This is where you can buy pasalubongs for your loved ones!
Their Pili Nuts are the best! They also have packed dried laing




Dios Mabalos
