If you plan to visit the Philippines, be sure to visit the Bicol region. Book a hotel in Naga City or any other city in the 6 different provinces that make up "Bicolandia".
If you have the time and luxury, hire the best tour guide and try to "go from province to province" for a week. Visit each province one day at a time to learn about the different views, culture, delicacies and other wonders that this region has to offer.

This province is not as popular as Baguio, Cebu or Palawan when it comes to summer destinations. But it also has many wonderful places to see. It is a good place to visit throughout the year and is not invaded by hordes of tourists, even on vacation. Explore the caves of Canton Island, walk and immerse yourself in Colasi Falls, surf in Bagasbas, and enjoy the authentic and absolutely delicious Bicol Express, Tuna Express, Sinantol (dish made of santol fruit), Laing and Kinunot found in Daet City and other municipalities.
& # 39; CamSur & # 39; It is an amazing province to visit. It has beautiful beaches, countless places of extreme sports and possibly the best resorts and accommodations in the Bicol region. Try wakeboarding at the Camsur water sports complex, or marvel at the numerous stalagmites and stalactites in the caves of Kalupnitan and Adiangao, dive into the hot springs at Mount Isarog and check out local food like Bicolano Pizza and Pili Nuts. It is not surprising if you rescue the rest of the provinces and simply enjoy a vacation in the city of Naga.
Visit historic churches such as the Bato Church, the Batalay Shrine and the Chapel of Our Lady of Sorrows. Swim and enjoy the view of the beautiful waterfalls like Maribina, Dororian, Balongbong and Nahulugan Falls. When it comes to gastronomy, you will find many restaurants in Virac, Catanduanes that serve the famous Bicol Express and other dishes that mainly use coconut milk and spices.
Known as the province where the perfect conical volcano is located, Albay has more to offer than just the Mayon volcano. It is full of many natural wonders: waterfalls, caves, natural springs, beaches and marine life. Visit the unexplored caves in Batan, Cagraray Island and Camalig. Have you heard of black sand beaches? Found along the coast of Bacacay, Sto. Domingo and Tiwi, these are created from the natural erosion of the volcanic rock and that developed from the ground lava.
If you are looking for adventure, practice snorkeling or whale watching in Donsol. But if you prefer a relaxed pace, there are many hot and cold springs in Monbon, Irosin, which many locals believe are therapeutic. There is also the Bulusan Eco-trek, which includes walking through the forest, riding a mountain bike, swimming in the mountain springs, enjoying mineral water spas and exploring the hidden caves of the jungle.
The last of the 6 islands, you can visit Bugsayon Marine Sanctuary or Buntod Reef Sanctuary. Spend an entire afternoon at Pawa Mangrove Ecosystem and Wildlife Park, and dine at the many floating restaurants along Masbate Bay.
Before getting on a plane and visiting these places, plan your trip accordingly, look for the best travel agencies and race the best deals. Book a hotel in Naga City, Legazpi or Daet and embark on an incredible journey full of great views, fun activities and delicious cuisines.
