Albay, Bicol Region

Where the World’s Most Perfect Cone Is

If you are planning to visit the beautiful places around the Philippines, make sure to list down first the Bicol Region.

Bicol Region is one of the 17 regions of the Philippines. Bicol (also spelled Bikol) is composed of four provinces in the Bicol Peninsula, the southeastern end of Luzon island, and two island-provinces adjacent to the peninsula.


How to get there?

If you want an extra adventure, I’m recommending you for a road trip. You can start your road trip. You can start your road trip from Cubao, ride in Superline Terminal and read the placard if it is going straight to Legazpi then you got the better one.


Where to go?

Beyond Bicol’s popular dishes like pinangat, laing, bicol express, and pili ice cream, there you’ll find places that locals are proud of and wanted to share with the world and with the tourists when there’s a chance.

Cagsawa Ruins

You better go first in Cagsawa Ruins where Mount Mayon is, this is located in Albay. Casagwa Ruins is just along the road so it means you only have one ride going there. You can take a tricycle and ask the driver to drop you off. You can also see the large Casagwa signage on the right side of the road upon going there.
