just got back from our legazpi trip.. super saya and enjoy..

sis chiqmom super thank you sa lahat ng help ha.. ang lapit lang nga ng airport from small talk and vista al.. nakakatuwa! yung sa cena una, nag tricycle lang din kami and jeep.. sabi pa samin nung tricycle kung special na daw ba, e di medyo kinabahan kami thinking na mukang tatagain kami sa price, when we asked how much, the driver said 20 daw for the 3 of us.. muntik na tuloy kami matawa ni hubby after, iniisip kase namin baka mga tipong 100.. mabilis lang din.. nakakatuwa pa yung may ari ng cena una kase hinatid nila kami pabalik ng vista al since gabi na din naman daw, mahirap na mag commute.. sobrang bait!

sarap ng foods sa legazpi and mura pa! di naman akalain ganon lang ang price ng foods sa cena una and small talk..
sarap sa misibis, ayaw na sana namin bumalik muna ng city.. hehe.. asikasong asikaso kami.
sarap din maglakad lakad sa legazpi, clean air, iilan na lang ang place na pwede mag-smoke kaya ang ganda!

nakapag jogging/walkathon kami sa lignon hill bec of the accident.. bec of the accident kase, pinagbawal na ang mga sasakyan, kahit mga habal habal and even bikes to go up the hill.. hanggang don na lang sa parking then you have to walk na lang.. it was a breeze naman walking, presko ang hangin and malamig.. sulit na din when you reached the top  ;D  tinuro pa samin yung spot where the accident happened.  the van was still there nakabaligtad sa bangin and hindi pa din nakukuha, nakakalungkot.. our tour guide, kuya louwil (who's very kind, maasikaso and makwento) said that it was a GT express van na nag overload daw kaya hayun..

overall, we want to go back soon, sana! kulang kami sa time e.. naga, sorsogon naman and para makabalik din kami ng caramoan.

Hi mga sis,

ano ano mga okay na hotels sa Legazpi? Venetia hotel palang ang nakikita ko na okay, may iba pa ba kayong alam? yung hindi masyado malayo sa airport?

Thanks sis! I've read on the hotels you mentioned and yung hotel venezia lang yung pinaka okay. Yung 2 other may mga negative feedack kaya nakakatakot.

Yung Vista Al Mayon ba sis malinis ang cr nila? medyo particular kasi ako sa cr. :) sorry if medyo maarte. hehe

you're welcome sis.. yup yun nga lang, medyo pricey sa st. ellis e.. magka range ata sila ng venezia..

sa vista al, they require 1 night deposit.. yung rooms nila na good for 2, 1,450.. so when we booked, they required us to deposit 1,450.

kahit yung swimming pool nila sis malinis kaya ok na din.. pero nothing fancy sa rooms nila ha.. clean sheets lang, soft naman na din ang foam. sa bathroom, soap lang ang natatandaan kong toiletries na provided and tissue pala.. yung lobby nila/ reception area nice na din, homey.. may billiards, board games.. may parang sofa bed din na nakaidlip pa ata kami one time..hehe

wala nga lang silang transfers to and from the airport.. pero super lapit lang nila.. nag trike lang kami, 5mins lang nasa airport na kami. kahit nung nag cena una kami and embarcadero from vista al, madali lang din magcommute..

^I'm okay with it as long as malinis yung rooms and especially the cr. :) Yung mga reviews kasi sa Pepperland and Alicia, nakakatakot mga reviews, tipong marumi raw and yung cr di malinis, tapos their rates are more expensive pa than Vista Al Mayon.

curious lang, mga sis.  ano bang ibig sabihin pag nakita/di nakita ang peak ng mt. mayon pag first time itong makita?  di ba may parang pamahiin na ganyan?  ;D

Hi mga Sisses, pahelp naman po. Verify ko lang kung legit ba tong account na 'to ng Vista Al Mayon:

Chinabank Legazpi City Branch
Acct. Name Michael James C.  Locsin / VISTA AL MAYON
Current Acct. # 180-061021-7

Dito ba kayo nagdeposit before? Just want to make sure, lalo na at full payment ang idedeposit namin.

and several questions po pala, inipon ko na, kasi para isang tanungan na lang:

How much po ang,
1. Trike from airport to Vista Al Mayon and same price lang po ba pag pabalik na?

2. Trike from Vista Al Mayon to Smalltalk?

3. Ano po ang pwedeng sakyan from Smalltalk to Lignon Hills? Trike po ba? and Magkano din po?

4. Paano po pumunta ng Daraga Church from Lignon Hills and magkano po ang fare?

5. Paano po pumunta ng Cagsawa Ruins from Daraga Church and magkano po yung fare para dito?

6. Paano po pumunta ng Albay Central Pili Nut Candy House from Cagsawa and magkano po ang fare? Worth it po bang pumunta dito or meron namang ibang mas masarap ang pili nut?

7. Paano po pumunta ng Embarcadero kung galing sa Candy House or Cagsawa (kung isskip namin [textspeak!] Candy House) and magkano po ang fare? May fee po ba ang pagakyat sa lighthouse? Dito rin po yung ATV ride diba? Magkano po ang ride?

8. Paano po pumunta ng Balay Cena Una kung galing sa Embarcadero and magkano po ang fare?

9. From Embarcadero paano naman po bumalik sa Vista Al Mayon and magkano din po pamasahe?

10. Sa mga nagstay sa Vista Al Mayon, saan po kayo nagbreakfast? Paano po pumunta doon and magkano fare?

11. May Terminal fee po ba sa Leagzpi Airport? P20 po ba per person yun?

Sorry po kung madaming questions, pero yan na po yung whole IT namin, March 26-27. We'll be touring Albay in one whole day lang talaga hehe.

MNL-LGP MAR 26
8:40 AM - 9:40 AM

LGP-MNL MAR 27
10:10 AM - 11:10 AM

Unplanned trip po ito kaya medyo worried ako kasi little time lang para magresearch.

Sorry kung super demanding and detailed ang mga questions. Thanks In Advance po sa mga sasagot! :)
