bicol weekend express hopping part 1 (camnorte)


woke up as early as 0700H then left by 0800H and then rode a jeep infront of lodging bound to lignon hill park. the roads are very steepy that we decided to left our baggages in the guardhouse just to cope up the road upward. this hill is an adventure place where zipline, jump-off of ATV's and jugging are found. overlooking above is the 2,400 meter (8,000 feet) mayon volcano. but it was cloudy the time we went there.

then we went back to the main road and rode a jeep bound to daraga and then polangui, told driver to please alight us to cagsawa ruins. souvenir shops were relatively cheaper and have lots to choose from on this place, bicols finest items including the pili products. afterwards, we went to sibid-sibid for nice bicol menu's that includes 'laing' and 'bicol express', all of which had a mixture of labuyo chili, very hot indeed.

left legazpi city by 1600H, while seating next to the window, i never left my sight on that gigantic view of bicol's perfect cone volcano, another philippines' bet for nature wonder.

* check weather forecast.
* check bus skeds specially on summer season (very peak) and plan for alternative sked. as much as possible book ahead of planned.
* if you rode bus bound to panganiban, drop-off to bato-balani crossing. if bus bound to daet, drop-off talubatahib rotonda then ride a tricycle bound to bato-balani crossing.
