Skipped the all-terrain vehicle (ATV) adventure to Mt. Mayon? Take a ride to the island’s Eco-Energy Park and make your way to the hilltop for a rewarding view of the volcano, Albay Gulf and the Pacific Ocean. Go early so you can catch the sunrise while having breakfast.

Get your hands busy with coconut hat making while you mingle with the resort staff as you wait for your turn in any of the activities or pass time by the beach. It makes for a good pasalubong.
