Brimming with exciting landscapes and rich history, Albay offers a perfect rendezvous of culture with nature. This is seen in the historic ruins of Cagsawa juxtaposed with the stunning beauty of Mount Mayon. Other popular sites with an exquisite view of Mayon are Sumlang Lake, Ligiion Hill, Legazpi Boulevard, Ouituinan Hill, and the "pancake island" of Corangon in Tiwi. A more intimate experience of the volcano is at Mayon Skyline, a park nestled 2,700 feet above the sea.
Albay can be reached by air via Legazpi City with flights to and from Manila and Ce. There are also regular aircon and premium buses emanating from Manila Bound for Legazpi, passing through the Maharlika Highway.
