Polangui is one of the towns in the Province of Albay situated in the Bicol Region. The latter is found in Southern Luzon. I had the privilege to tour the different spots which are magnificently exciting despite the simplicity of the place. I recommend that you travel in the area and find something that will truly suit your mood as you are going for a pleasure trip.
Festivities
Summer in Polangui and the rest of the Bicol region usually commences in April and ends in June. Just before the season ends, there are several festivities held in the place. The different barangays welcome tourists and locals with banners of greetings coming from the government officials. Each banner indicates the dates by which the particular barangay holds its annual festival.
There are different activities held during each fiesta. Typical of Bicolano culture, you will get to dance your night away with traditional folk songs as well as electrifying modern music. You may also watch one of the Bicolano’s favorite sports – basketball.
A Taste of Bicolano Cuisine
While in Polangui, get the chance to taste the unique blend of spices and coconut milk in their dishes. Yes, these two ingredients are usually present in all menus in restaurants and are even served by locals to tourists. Your trip to the place will not be complete unless you discover how the dishes are cooked to perfection. One of the native dishes served is called the laing. Bicolanos are also famous with their binagoongang baboy.
Places to visit
There are a lot of places to visit while in Polangui. Aside from their beaches and resorts, you may get a different atmosphere while you visit their hot springs. There are a lot of them found near the area. But of course, do not ever fail to take a ride and get to Mount Mayon. The said volcano is noted for the beauty and splendor it projects to tourists with its perfectly shaped cone. The Cagsawa Ruins is also located near the area which depicts much of Bicol’s history. Located at the foreground of the famous volcano, the ruins is said to be the only structure which remained standing after the Mayon erupted and devastated the surrounding communities in 1814.

Recommended Bacarra Guide

Bacarra History

Anyone is usually in awe with simplicity. It is in simple means where innate character comes out, leaving a mark of uniqueness. The third oldest town in Ilocos Norte, Bacarra, is no exception for being a place with ease and individuality. Since the Augustinians founded Bacarra in 1590, it has been through a lot of struggles with its place on the map and even how its name was derived. Interesting, indeed! It used to be an encomienda in 1591, a visita of Laoag in 1603 and an independent ministry in 1614. However, the important thing is that it has its identity now: A fourth-class municipality in Northern Ilocos where around 29,668 people... Read more »
