The whole weekend I was there it was really cloudy. I almost gave up thinking I won't be able to see it at all. But then on my last day in Legazpi, while in the airport, it showed itself! I was so happy. It really was majestic and perfect. My trip was complete.

You can hire an ATV to go near the base of the volcano. There are guides to help you out in case there are issues in the ATV unit. It's a must try experience.

Wow, wow & wow. After seeing the nearby ruins up we went for our first experience with the ATV's available on hire nearby. As mentioned in another post this whole area is an eye opener on the past volcanic explosions and the mass destruction caused. An area, i say to be treated with respect even though the guides are keen... More

What is there new to say about a volcano that looms large in Philippine psyche even after the destruction wrought by Mount Pinatubo and continues to attract visitors like us? It's near-perfect symmetrical cone is famous and never fails to impress. The continued volcanic activity is well-recognized and Phivolcs (Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology) had a 3-month eruption alert... More

Everywhere in Legazpi, view of the majestic volcano is amazing. Tried ATV riding (one of the popular activities to try in Legazpi). As we got closer to the base of the volcano, the view of Mayon Volcano gets better and better.

We stayed in the adjacent hotel with a very nice scenery of the volcano. Air was fresh, it was not as hot as Manila. I enjoyed my stay.

No Bicol tour is complete without a visit to the Daragang Magayon. It's majesty must be seen from a variety of vantage points, hence, accompanying tourist destinations are standard complements. It's reputation as the most perfect volcanic cone is well-deserved and awe-inspiring.
