   BICOL: "WHALE SHARK CAPITAL OF THE WORLD"
 
LIne

The Bicol Region is one of the 17 Regions of the Philippines, designated as Region V. Bicol (also spelled Bikol) is composed of four provinces in the Bicol Peninsula, the southeastern end of Luzon island, and two island-provinces adjacent to the peninsula, namely: Albay, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Catanduanes, Masbate and Sorsogon. The regional centre is considered to be in Legazpi City, Albay.

The region has recently seen a revival in its tourism industry, due to the popularity of Mayon Volcano, the new CamSur Water Sports Complex, whale shark spotting, among others, which consequently increased the number of upscale resorts.

Owing to its location, Region V offers plenty of choices for visitors — beautiful natural features like beaches, mountains and waterfalls with lush vegetation. Activities include scuba diving to wrecked galleons, spelunking, and mountaineering or visits to man-made attractions like church architecture from the Spanish Colonial period, etc. The municipality of Daet and Catanduanes province have long been destinations for surfers. The opening of the Southern Luzon International Airport in Legazpi City is hoped to further boost tourism in the region.
