Bicol Trip 2: (This is not the last time for sure)

We've visited Bicol again for my friend's wedding. We left Manila at around 9PM of December 18 aboard Penafrancia's Lazy Boy Bus and arrived Naga at around 5:30AM the next day. We've booked ourselves for 3 days 2 nights in CBD Plaza Hotel ( in Naga which is right across the Bus Terminal. The Hotel is clean, modern and best of all, cheap. I paid Php 1,200 for the entire duration of my stay there.

Day 1: CWC: Lago Del Rey

Day 2: Wedding & Party!!!!

Day 3: Naga Tour, CWC: Wicker Park and Cable Park

Naga Cathedral

Old Penafrancia Church

CWC: Cable Park

CWC: Winch Park

SM Naga

I'll be back in Bicol this coming February 2011. I will stay in CWC, then probably we'll have a sidetrip to Sorsogon to see the gentle giants of the sea.
