On an early morning flight, we went to Legazpi City. This is what we saw: Mayon Volcano. One of the country's most active volcanoes and also one of the most perfectly conical mountains in the entire world.

One of Bicol's famous souvenirs is the lowly Pili Nut. One can grab it in most places in the region.
