    Mt. Mayon is the most active volcano in the Philippines, with its frequent eruption producing mud slides, ash falls, and lava flows which have destructed several towns time and again. However, even with its powerful might, Mayon still makes it at the top provinces to visit when in the country with its perfect cone shape

    Local folklore says that Mt. Mayon is named after a legendary heroine called Daragang Magayon, which means “beautiful lady.” This beautiful view that’s best seen on a clear day. Its beauty can be seen almost anywhere within the place, although the best spot would be from the Cagsawa Ruins.

    To go to Albay, you may take a plane ride from Manila that approximately takes an hour. By land, you can take a bus in Cubao or Pasay with 9-12 hours of travel time.
