The Best View of Mayon Volcano | Lignon Hill Nature Park

One of the best place to get a nice view of Mayon Volcano and you can also have a spectacular views of the city, Daraga, Albay Gulf  or Legaspi Airport. The park offers a lot of different activities such as zipline, ATV ( All Terrain Vehicle Tours), rappelling, paintball  and it is also a good place to hike or jog. Entrance fee here is Php 20 pesos and Php 25 for foreigners. This park is located up hill so climbing here is quite tiring but you can also ride a tricycle. I really enjoyed staying here because of the relaxing cool wind. Best time to visit the place would be during the early morning around 6:00am to 8:00am as long as the sun won't burn you. There also have souvenir shops and eatery in case you'll get hungry.  

How to get there:
You can take  a jeepney from Legaspi City or Albay that going in the direction of Daraga 2nd Loop and ask the driver to stop at Lignon Hill Entrance Gate. Fare is Php 10 per passenger. Then from the main road take a 3-5 minutes walk to the gate entrance of the park. 

Albay's Japanese World War II Tunnel in Lignon Hills

This old Japanese Tunnel is an L-shaped tunnel used during the World War II and formerly used by the Japanese Imperial Army. Located at the foot of Lignon Hill Adventure & Nature Park. I also assisted by ate and took all my photos inside. One of the unique tourist attraction in the city because of the soldier size manikin, material used before & equipment were Japanese brought in time and remains of the place is an excellent & interesting place to visit. This would the next tourist attraction in the Province of Albay. I saw this tunnel before in the famous channel in TV5's Amazing Race Philippines were the contestant entered to this area to get the clue. 

Legaspi City | Albay Park & Wildlife

A must see tourist attraction in Legaspi City Albay if you're with your kids and family. Kids can play around will surely love the park, the giant slides and swing or probably try biking within the vicinity just ask for assistance near the main gate. There are a lot of animals in the area like monkeys, owls, birds, crocodiles, turtles, bear cat, snakes, ostrich and fishes. They also have a lot of varieties  of herbs and flowers where you can just point your lenses and a good place to practice your photographic skills. Yes its cheap with the entrance fee of Php 10 and the place is clean and well-maintained but car parking is not allowed inside. About 10-15 minutes away from Lignon Hills and this is a good place to bring your family or barkada for bonding. If you want to get away from the busy street of Legaspi and enjoy the outdoors then this is the right place to go.

One Great Food at Biggs Diner - Legaspi City

Before heading to top tourist attraction in the Province of Albay, I had a great little U.S full lunch diner meals are as you would expect and I went to the nearest branch from my hotel inn. I totally love this place because the food is yummy and affordable, not your ordinary fast food chain. Don't forget to try their chocolate cake, red ice tea & baby back ribs with java rice & side dish. There's a lot of food choices here and the food is patterned from an American eateries. The decor is typical of an American-type diner as well. Must drop by this long time local favorite of all people in Bicol Region. So far, the service is excellent because they treated me nice and even offered to take some of my shots and I was planning to have baby ribs next time.
