Embarcadero is Legazpi’s answer to Metro Manila’s Ayala Malls. The layout is the same, food is great, and there is music from a live band. The best feature would have to be the breeze coming from the sea. It is not named Embarcadero for nothing. Its location by the dock makes it an ideal place to chill at after a long day given that it closes quite late in the evening. There are enough restaurants in there to choose from along with some fashion and accessories stores on the upper floors. I also saw a race track for go-karts nearby.
I came back to the inn at around 11 PM and was wondering if I would wake up early the next morning to see Cagsawa Ruins or just sleep late and let it go. I eventually slept late and let it go, HAHAHA. Cagsawa Ruins could be paired with Ligñon Hill in your itinerary. It is a rather popular Albay landmark characterized by the bell tower always accompanying Mayon on postcards. The very same volcano buried the whole town in ash a few eons ago and now only the bell tower stands to remind everyone why you should not dare cross Mayon, especially when she is not in a bad mood. Her Italian friend Vesuvius is just as feisty and did the same thing to an unsuspecting Pompeii centuries before. Tsk tsk, Volcanoes and their tempers.
The next morning was reserved for a quick run to the mall to grab my pictures. After that, I hopped into a taxi to the airport and waited in vain if our flight was going to be canceled because of the rain. It was not. Yahoo. This trip has so far been my shortest. I usually spend two days in one province. Here, I split a day between two. Do yourself a favor and do not emulate this stupidity. Albay has a lot to offer when it comes to nature-tripping. One day is simply not enough!
