First place we went to was Cagsawa Ruins. Approximately 30 minutes away via jeepney (around 8 km) from the Legazpi central business district, it is the most visited tourist spot in Albay.
After we got our acceptable shots of the volcano from the Cagsawa Ruins Park, we went to Ligñon Hill to get a different vantage view of Mt Mayon. From Casagwa , we rode on one of the tricycles parked just in front of the Park's main entrance and told the driver to bring us directly to Ligñon Hill.
It was a good thing that we were able to take decent pictures of Mayon Volcano on our first day in Albay. It was very cloudy on our second day, we could barely see a silhouette of the volcano, and ,on our 3rd and last day it was completely covered with clouds.
