Embarcadero's bungee trampoline

Any tourist who visits Legazpi City should never miss beholding the majestic Mayon Volcano from a distance. After all, Mayon is partially situated in the city, so there's no chance one will miss seeing the imposing landmark. Sometimes it would hide behind its vog (volcano fog), but on a good day it stands fully majestic.

One of the best vantage points to view Mount Mayon is by the Legazpi City harbor. The open space of the sea is good romance to the volcano's enigmatic presence.

Embarcadero View

During my Holy Week stay in the city, I had the privilege to move about with less consideration for a crowd because most people were busy converging at certain religious sites. Since I was checked in for a budget accommodation at Elllis Ecotel, the viewing decks outside provided me a good space to freely walk around in. The hotel's location at the new mall, Embarcadero, provided me good views of the harbor and the volcano.

Vantage Point at the Breakwater

I was up as early as 5:30 in the morning during my stay in Legazpi city so I could jog by the breakwater. It was a good distance near the hotel so I didn't tire myself that much doing the activity. No accompanying music or a jogging buddy. The sweet treat is the vastness of the city harbor set against the splendid Mayon.

Ships of various sizes were docked by the port and a few fishermen with their boats were already out exploring the harbor for an early catch. One by one, locals and tourists were arriving at the breakwater. Some were also in jogging mode while some seemed to have been awakened out of their sleep just to view the humble sunrise in the area.
