Albay is a mountainous province located on the southeastern area of Luzon. Crowned by one of the most stunning volcanoes in the world, Albay is also a top performer in the agricultural industry. Countless volcanic eruptions and quakes may have shaken its lands in the past but it remains one of the most-visited and most progressive provinces in the Bicol Region.

Anyone will be mesmerized by the beautiful Mayon Volcano, the biggest tourist draw of Albay. It towers at 2,462 meters above sea level and possesses a nearly perfect cone shape. It is also the most active volcano in the Philippines; its explosion in 2014 was reported to be the biggest tourist event of Albay that year.  But for safety reasons, it is still best to see Mayon Volcano when there is no reported volcanic activity.

A trip to the Mayon Volcano won't be complete without visiting the Cagsawa Ruins, another tourist attraction in Albay. When the volcano erupted in 1814, lahar destroyed and buried everything in its path, including the Cagsawa church (though new evidence suggests that the church may have been destroyed through weathering and neglect). Built in 1724, only the bell tower of the baroque church remains. The ruins are now within the premises of a park built by the government.

Another attraction in Albay is The Ligñon Hill Nature Park, built on the Ligñon Hill. It stands at 156 meters and overlooks the Mayon Volcano and the city of Legazpi. Sightseers can enjoy viewing the cityscape, the volcano, and the Albay Gulf from the park's viewdeck.



By Air
Cebu Pacific Air and Philippine Airlines fly daily from Metro Manila to Legazpi Airport. Air travel takes about an hour.
 
By Land
Bus lines like DLTB, Philtranco, ALPS, Raymond Bus, Isarog, and RLS often ply the Manila-Albay route. Travel time ranges from eight to 12 hours, depending on your destination in Albay and the traffic situation. You can find their terminals in Cubao and Pasay.
 

How to Get Around
By Jeep
Jeepneys are found all over Albay. You can see these vehicles plying the thoroughfares of the province daily.
 
By Taxi
A taxi is recommended for those who can afford a more comfortable means of getting around.
 
By Tricycle
Tricycles are another efficient mode of public transport. Aside from getting you from one point to another, tricycles can also be hired for tours.
 
 

What to See
Landmarks
Perhaps the most defining landmark of Albay is the Mayon Volcano. An active stratovolcano, its most prominent feature is the almost perfect symmetrical shape of its cone. It rises 2,400 meters and is the highest peak in the province.
 
Mayon’s most destructive eruption in the year 1814 buried nearby towns in volcanic ash and claimed more than a thousand lives. The most iconic yet grim reminder of that tragedy are the ruins of the Cagsawa church in the town of Daraga. All that remains of the 18th century Caraga Church is its belfry. The image of this structure laid out against the backdrop of the Mayon Volcano is popularly used in Philippine postcards. You can visit this amazing landmark, which is just near the Our Lady of the Gate Church, also known as Daraga Church.
 
Another impressive Catholic church, Daraga Church has a facade made of stone and was built in the 18th century in the Spanish baroque architectural style. Meanwhile, the facade of the St. John the Baptist Parish Church in Tabaco City is made from volcanic soil. Built in the 1600s, the church is hailed as a National Historical Treasure.
 
Incidentally, the church of the town of Camalig is also known as St. John the Baptist Parish Church and another National Historical Treasure. This religious structure, on the other hand, was constructed in the 1800s.
 
The Joroan Church is another important church to visit. It is a popular pilgrimage site as it enshrines the image of the Nuestra Señora de Salvacion, which is believed to be miraculous.
 
Natural Attractions
Aside from the majestic Mayon Volcano, Albay is blessed with other natural wonders that will truly captivate nature lovers.

Tiwi Hot Springs and National Park is one of the most popular natural attractions in the province. The warm temperatures of the springs are sought after by those who want to relax in the soothing waters. A lot of people believe that soaking in the springs is very therapeutic.  
 
Several waterfalls are also scattered in some of the towns in Albay. Go on a trek to these hidden wonders and you will be rewarded with a refreshing sight of cascading waters. Some of these include Vera Falls and Palale Falls in Malinao, Bugsucan Falls in Tiwi, Busay Falls in Malilipot, and Mataginting Falls in Jovellar.
 
Beach bums can also explore Albay's many islands and beaches. Get a dose of vitamin sea in Rapu Rapu Island and Cagraray Island and be mesmerized by the black sands of Sogod Beach in Bacacay and Joroan Beach in Tiwi.
 
Discover the untouched beauty of Jovellar's Quitinday Cave and its underground river. Still virtually unknown to most travelers, the river's emerald waters are perfect for a splash, and the limestone formations of the cave are truly a sight to behold.
 
The following caves are also worth a trip: Hoyop Hoyopan and Calabidongan Caves in Camalig, Del Rosario Cave in Jovellar, and Minaroso Cave in Rapu-Rapu.
 
Man-Made Attractions
Albay is packed with many places for recreation: Ligñon Hill Nature Park is a popular place for sightseeing as this hill overlooks a view of the magnificent Mayon. It is also frequented for its many exciting attractions such as its zipline, hanging bridge, and the World War II Japanese tunnel.

Kawa-kawa Hill and Nature Park is a must-visit place for pilgrims. It boasts larger-than-life dioramas of the Stations of the Cross.
 
Events and Festivals

The fiestas of the cities and towns are also a must-see. Some of the popular ones include Tabaco City's Tabak Festival in March, Tiwi's Coron Festival in August, and Legazpi City's Ibalong Festival in October.
