Travel Guide Budget and Itinerary for Albay

Albay is a beautiful region that is worth visiting. One of its most iconic landmarks is the fetching Mayon Volcano. There are also other attractions and things to do in this province. Many combine a trip to this province with Sorsogon because of their proximity to each other. It is also easy to visit both provinces because of public buses, vans and jeeps.
