2017 LEGAZPI, ALBAY TRAVEL GUIDE

Many travelers have given their reviews, blogs, and even vlogs about their adventures in the beautiful and scenic place of Legazpi, Albay but none of those gave justice (and I guess no one will ever will) about the true beauty of this place. Legazpi City hailed as one of the top growing cities in the Philippines continuously and progressively serves the adventure and tourism of the place. In fact, it is not on its way in developing the place as the leading place in terms of scenic tourist spots, nerve-wracking adventures, food, and great hospitality towards the guests and visitors.

And of course, we’ve all heard the world’s famous Mayon Volcano which is considered as a perfect shape volcano. Not only it gives a beautiful scenery in the area but it also provides for the living of the locals in the area because they get to earn by selling native goods and products especially when there are a lot of tourists visiting the place. As we all know, the region of Bicol has a lot of things to offer such as beaches, diving sites, antique churches, and other heritage sites. These places will surely make your vacation a one of a kind experience!
