2019 Bicol Road Trip: Day 6

Image
Day 6:May 26, 2019After five days of exploring the Bicol Region, we've finally come to the part where we have to say goodbye to this wonderful region.
Since we've already booked our bus tickets to Starmall in Alabang prior to our trip, we had plenty of time to do other things. For me and my parents, we spent the whole morning working on our hillside farm. My wife, on the other hand, finalized the things that we'd bring back home. As for my daughter, she spent her time playing running after chickens. 





That afternoon we drove to Legazpi City to pick up our pre-ordered bus tickets at the Isarog Booking Office in Legazpi Bus Terminal in Tahao Road in Bitano, Legazpi City.

Sumlang Lake - Albay

Image
Located in Barangay Sumlang, Camalig in the province of Albay, Sumlang Lake is one of the newest tourist destinations of the town and is also known as one of the best places to view the majestic Mayon Volcano.
History of Sumlang Lake Sumlang Lakepresently receives more than a hundred visitors per day. However, it was not like this a few years ago. The 9-hectare lake was once a water-lily covered lake with high coliform levels. As the locals would say, it once actually serves little purpose to the majority of the townspeople. Thankfully, through the bayanihan spirit of the locals, Sumlang Lake was given new life and now serves the barangay with a better (or let's say profitable) purpose. 






Today, Sumlang Lake offers visitors several must-try activities like aqua biking, balsa tour, and kayaking at a very affordable price. Visitors could also go food tripping they may opt to try out the mouthwatering dishes in Socorro's or the snacks at the snack truck at the lakeside. For those on …
