Albay is a province located in the Bicol Region in southeastern Luzon of the Philippines. Its capital is the city of Legazpi, the regional administrative center of the whole Bicol Region.
The iconic image of Albay is the towering, nearly-perfect cone of Mayon Volcano. Just the view of it is worth the drive. You can go anywhere in Albay and have Mayon Volcano in the background of your photos.
But there are plenty of other places to visit in Albay. The Ligñon Hill Nature Park is at a relaxing height of 511 feet above sea level. It’s a popular place for joggers and families. People also troop to it for the zipline with a view.
Cagsawa Ruins is another place of interest. When Mayon Volcano erupted in 1814, everything in the area was buried save for the Cagsawa church bell. Go to see it, and you’ll find the currently quiet volcano in the background as a reminder of nature’s unpredictable temper
Nestled halfway on the slope of Mount Mayon is the famed Mayon Skyline View Deck also known as Mayon Rest House.
Some of the place to include to your itinerary are: Kawa-kawa hills, Sumlang Lake, Camalig Church, Quituinan Ranch, World War II Tunnel, Busay Falls, Tabaco Cutlery, Tabaco Church, Sto. Domingo Church, Legazpi Sea wall or the Boulevard.
