The Philippines - Luzon

Legazpi, Albay: “Queen City of Southern Luzon”


For the final leg of our Bicolandia trip, we checked in at Legazpi. We found a condo style unit in Airbnb that would fit all 10 of us in one house.

Since we arrived late in the evening, we decided to just eat dinner at 1st Colonial Grill in Ayala Mall. You probably heard of their Sili Ice Cream. It’s a must-try. There are different levels of spicyness for the ice cream, I ordered Level 1 because all the viands we ordered were already too spicy. After eating dinner, we all went back at our accommodation and slept early.

The following day, we packed all our stuff and headed to Legazpi Boulevard. We had a little bit of photo ops as the big Legazpi landmark’s background is the majestic Mayon Volcano. Perfect spot for photography!

We also went to Ligñon Hill. It has a 360 degree view of the Mayon Volcano on top of a hill. We paid PHP 25 each for the entrance fee. It’s also an adventure park where you can experience the zip line, sky bike, hanging bridge and a lot more. Unfortunately, we went too early and there were no operators yet for the said activities. We bought some pasalubong, took some photos and went on to our next destination.

Last on our itinerary was to visit the Cagsawa Ruins. I can’t remember if there was an entrance fee but we definitely paid for parking. It’s a great spot for pictures too and lucky for us, Mayon Volcano was not shy and showed itself to us.

It has been a tiring 4 days but we sure had some fun. Still recovering from the sunburn, I hope you guys find time to visit Bicol or make it your next trip. One thing’s for sure, it’ll be awesome and it’ll be worth it.

Until our next trip,

– Cha ❤
