It’s the last full day of our Bicolandia Adventure with the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA).
We woke up a little bit early, had our usual breakfast then rode the coach. Nah, we won’t be doing another rolling tour. We’re off to another paradise.
This time, we’re bound for Misibis Bay Resort in Cagraray Island Bacacay Albay!!!
Its the third day of our Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA) Media Familiarization Trip. And we are supposed to explore the awesomeness of Albay!
We started the day early with buffet breakfast at the Oriental Hotel. The Oriental Legazpi is the latest luxury hotel to open its doors in Legazpi Cty Albay. The hotel is located on top of the hill overlooking the vast cityscape of Legazpi. It also has a breathtaking view of the Myon Volcano especially in the morning.
It’s the second day of our Media Familiarization Tour sponsored by the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA).
We woke up a little bit early and traveled from Sorsogon City to the town of Matnog, Sorsogon.
Long before, I know knew Matnog as a port town. This is where the bus from mainland Luzon bound for Visayas gets loaded to RORO vessels and travel to Allen Samar. Matnog
But it was only recently that I discovered that Matnog also has its own charms. Little did I know that it has also its own fair share of paradise. A paradise just waiting to be discovered.
I have to admit. This is one trip that I have I have always been looking forward to. Then last July 9th, I finally received the email invitation. Another trip to Bicol!
But this time the client’s Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA). For three straight years bow, I have been joining their annual Media Familiarization Tour which is also held as a launch for the upcoming Philippine Tavel Mart.
We left Manila at around 8AM, and in no time our plane was already taxiing at the Legazpi Airport. We were greeted with loud drumbeats with some local performers dancing just outside the terminal building.
From the airport immediately rode our assigned coach that would bring us to our first destination, the EDC BacMan Geothermal Plant. Map here
