Snippets of Tourist Spots (Bicol and Leyte)

If you want to see history at it's finest look no further, the Visayas Region south of Manila offers a wide range of tourist destination to fit everyone's taste.

What's in here:

Two active volcanoes

1) Mayon Volcano, popularly known as the Perfect Cone. Mayon Volcano is an active volcano in the Philippines on the island of Luzon, in the province of Albay in the Bicol Region. Its almost perfectly-shaped cone is considered by some to be the Philippine equivalent of Mount Fuji in Japan. 15 kilometres to the southeast of the volcano is Legazpi City. Mayon is classified by volcanologists as a stratovolcano.

Fun in the Sun at Subic

If you want a quick get-away from the busy Manila for a week-end go no further, Olonggapo, Subic in Zambales is just a two hour (ooops make it 40 minutes, with the new Subic, Pampanga Expressway!) drive and there are a wide-range of beaches and resorts you can choose from to relax.

We were suppose to go to White Rock, but we arrived at a peak time it seems because a three bus full loads of people just checked-in when we went there. But for other resort options you can go at this site:

So we had not choice but go somewhere else where we will be accomodated and the beachfront is nice. Welcome to Ocean View Park, its closer than White Rock and just a couple minutes after you leaving the Subic, Clark Freezone property.
