When I was a school-kid, we learned at school that it is famous for its symmetrical "ice cream cone-like" figure. Since then I became that interested, whether it is true or not, I need to see it with my own eyes, so does my husband.
Our two-day tour began with a breakfast at Bigg's Diner in Daraga, which was a 10 minute tricycle ride from the airport. We decided to pass by our unit at the Bed and Breakfast Hotel we reserved to drop our baggage off and start with the adventure. Bhoggs chose Balay De La Rama which is near the road where buses and jeepneys pass by and is near all the famous landmarks we planned to visit.
After our bags were checked in, we took a mere 10 minute-jeepney ride to Cagsawa National Park. It is were you can find the Cagsawa Ruins with a spectacular view of the Mayon. Mayon, btw, came from their word 'magayon,' which means beautiful.
We also noticed that with the vast land covering the whole town, traces of past strong storms are scattered, like the picture of an abandoned house in the middle of this grass field seen above.
On the sunny road to the Cagsawa park, artworks in stones and rattan crafts are being sold.
On the site are some fast food stalls for some refreshments. We had this Halo-halo at Jimaynam Eatery. This cool snack have shreds of cheddar cheese on top of it, all served on a bowl. Visitors also flock here for Bicol's Pancit Bato, Laing and Bicol Express.
Next stop is Lignon Hill and then a one-of-a kind Bicol cuisine at Sibid-Sibid.
