What it lacks for size, it sure make up for the sheer magnificence of its natural wonders.
Hello, Mayon Volcano!
Legazpi is one of the earliest sites of the Spanish colonization. It boasts of stone churches dating back to the 15th century. Look at the texture of the church. It's so beautiful. The camera did not do justice.
And of course, who wouldn't recognize this -- The Cagsawa Ruins.
What makes Bicol a hot destination? It's food, literally. Spicy hot food that tingles your senses and imagination. Two spicy dishes come to mind, the pinangat and the bicol express. Upon arrival, these were what we filled our empty stomachs with.
Pinangat Pizza -- tastes really good!
This is probably the softest version of crispy pata but boy, the skin is just as crunchy.
I was billeted for over a week at The Hotel Venezia . It's a cozy place situated inside a mid-size village. A bed and breakfast that offers the view of Mount Mayon as backdrop. And it's a mere 5 minute drive from the airport. Rates are reasonable, too.
Take a bite of the Bicolano experience and get a kick out of it. To know more about this scenic city, check on the Legazpi Tourism site.
