Albay: Quituinan Hills

Image
Located at Barangay Tinago, Camalig in the province of Albay, Quituinan Hills is one of the most beautiful yet least known tourist destinations of the town. 

For those who have visited Quituinan Hills on a clear day, I bet they'd agree with me when I say that this place is among the top places in the province to view Mayon Volcano. Aside from that, the best way to describe Quituinan Hills is that it has a ranch-like feel. Well, that's probably due to the fact that the developed part of the hill is really a ranch named Quituinan Ranch

This place is a great location for picnics with friends and family. You can either rent a cottage (small P100; big P500) or bring and pitch a tent (P100 space rental) in one of the allowable areas of the hill. Other activities offered here are horseback riding (P60 per 15 minutes) and ATV rental (P200 per 15 minutes). You can also explore the Japanese Tunnel across the street. However, make sure that you have a guide along with you. For those who …

2019 Bicol Road Trip: Day 3

May 23, 2019

For today's itinerary, we'd be exploring my dad's hometown of Camalig in the province of Albay for the whole day and then call it a day in one of the hotels in Legazpi City. 




We left my father's house quite early and drove towards our first destination for the day which was Quituinan Hills in Barangay Tinago. We parked in the part of the hill that is known as Quituinan Ranch. This place has a wide clearing which has a beautiful view of the majestic Mayon volcano. We were very lucky that during our visit, Mayon Volcano did not hide behind the clouds and we were able to see fully its beauty. We took this opportunity to take photographs of this famous volcano for our social media accounts.




We then drove to our next destination which was Hoyop-Hoyopan Cavein Barangay Cotmon. This was my second visit to this popular tourist spot. However, it was the first for my wife and daughter. It was a very memorable spelunking for us as not only did we enjoy exploring the cav…

Camarines Sur: Naga Land Hotel Revisited 2019

Image
Located at Elias Angeles Street, Naga City in the province of Camarines Sur, Naga Land Hotelis one of the best hotels in the city.

Strategically located at the heart of the city, Naga Land Hotel is just a few blocks away from two the city's historic Catholic churches -San Francisco Church and Naga Metropolitan Cathedral. It is also near Plaza Barlin and Plaza Quince Martires (Fifteen Martyrs Plaza). 



For those planning to go on a food trip, Naga Land Hotel is surrounded by numerous restaurants and cafes, many of which can only be found in the city. A grocery and drug store is also just across the street so you don't need to worry if you forgot or ran out of your maintenance medicine or personal stuff. 


I got to revisit and stay for a night again at Naga Land Hotel with my family during our 2019 Bicol Road Trip. There were no changes with its facade and reception area (They probably hired new receptionists though) but I have observed that several rooms on the second floor were und…
