Legazpi, the Mayon Town, is on the shift! The complete heart of the funds of Albay province is becoming turned upside down. I’ll write a bit more down below. Initially comes the critical details for travellers and expatriates.
Yesterday a friend observed this message posted exterior of the shut field place of work of the Bureau of Immigration:
On the official web page of the Bureau of Immigration you nonetheless uncover the old handle. But it is actually Shut! We have now current our visa website page.
Map of the Bureau of Immigration workplaces (outdated and new) in Legazpi Town:
The shortest way from the outdated to the new office of the Bureau of Immigration is 900 meter or about 12 minutes walk. Very best is to get a tricycle for a 5 minutes trip. By car it is a little bit complicated mainly because of all the 1-way roads.

Far more about Legazpi City
I like Legazpi. The 1st time I went to the money of Albay experienced been 9 years in the past. On leading of my bucket listing stood Mount Mayon, world’s most lovely volcano. At that time I did not see substantially of the metropolis. My eyes were being mounted on the fantastic form of Mayon. Considering that then, I vacation once or two times a 12 months to Legazpi. It is the very best route to journey from Camiguin to Naga City. But Legazpi is generally value a prevent.
The very first superb surprise had been the renovation of the Embarcadero de Legazpi, the port buildings. The Embarcadero grew to become a good area to have meal or just a drink in the evening. A clean breeze from the sea cools down the heath of the working day. The selection of food stuff is global and very affordable.
There are at least two outstanding hotels in Legazpi. The St Ellis, a authentic downtown lodge, is 7 minutes’ stroll from PNR Legazpi Terminal railway station and 11 minutes’ stroll from Kapuntukan Hill, a coastal hill overlooking the Albay Gulf. Hint: Go up to the ballroom on top rated floor. From there you have a breath taking check out on Mount Mayon. The Oriental hotel lays a little bit outdoors on a hill oposing Mount Mayon. For me the Oriental is one particular of the finest accommodations in the Philippines’ countryside. From your balcony and from the swimming pool you have an fantastic look at around the full city, and of course of Mount Mayon.
Downtown Legazpi is a person massive development site. All grocery store chains are transferring in and creating malls straight in the heart. A 8-lane freeway from Daraga to Legazpi is currently being finalized. I just surprise, in which they will set all all those cars. Discovering a parking room in the centre is now now a distressing action.
Exterior of Legazpi the functions on the Bicol Worldwide Airport (BIA) are progressing. Inauguration is planned for 2019. It would seem that Cebu Pacific Air will make a hub of BIA for their Visayas and Mindanao procedure. The only adverse stage is the area of the airport much outside the metropolis. But travellers from Sorsogon will be satisfied.
And a very last trace: If you want get images of Mount Mayon, do it very early in the morning. Small just after sunrise, cumulus clouds will develop up and cover the Queen for most of the time!
