We stayed in legaspi and decided DIY tour of mayon. It required a lot of transport transfer which is almost 2hours or more. If you've got the money and not enough time i suggest you contact a travel agency or better yet a taxi driver to bring you there. Anyway, view even from afar is breathtaking and when you're at the footsteps of the mountain its even more breathtaking. Its like viewing a postcard or something.. On the way up we rode a tricycle and took us more than 30mins. Theres a planetarium but its closed when we went up so we just took some pictures and stayed for a couple more mins to breathe in the clean, fresh scent of air.

Did not go up the volcano but its view followed us around in Legaspi, and reminded us of the majesty of nature.

one of the best places to go to in the Philippines. The beautifully shaped cone of Mayon volcano will surely please.

Be sure to check the weather first though as the volcano is easily hidden by cloud cover. Go to the Cagsawa ruins to take that iconic picture with both the volcano and the ruins in the picture. For a closer view, some other towns near Legazpi city are actually nearer to the volcano. Be well prepared though as Legazpi city is not that well developed so bring the essentials with you.

Standing on the helipad on the lava front was memorable. I've never been close to an active volcano, and seeing the tracks of the lava flow and the black lava rocks gave me a pretty good idea about the forces of nature at play here.
