The place provides a great view of the Mayon Volcano. If you want to have a good picture of the Queen. Although it is a bit sad how this place was once a town and now just part of the history of the said province.

The Museum is very limited in artifacts and things to see the best part of the visit are the views of the Volcano. I think that there are more opportunities to trek or bike trail on paths around the volcano.

The place provides a great view of the Mayon Volcano. It also offers ATV rides for the more adventurous type. The place is picturesque but if one would recall that an entire town was wiped out, it will leave you with a mixed feeling.

The weather was really good when I went here. I got to see the cone-shaped volcano. The people were really helpful with taking photos. It has lots of souvenir shops and you get a lot of discount when you buy a lot.
