2019 Bicol Road Trip: Day 6

Day 6: May 26, 2019 Road Back Home After five days of exploring the Bicol Region , we've finally come to the part where we have to say goodbye to this wonderful region.

Sumlang Lake History of Sumlang Lake Sumlang Lake presently receives more than a hundred visitors per day. However, it was not like this a few years ago.
