Philippines Travel Guide, About Philippines, Where is the Philippines

And to mention not having to pay over the top high priced entrance fees at the tourist spots , except for a tricycle fare most places are free . Mostly what visitors do is eat drink and swim and just chill and be cool in Bicol .

The places to go visit in daet could all be seen in oneĀ  afternoon really by driving around in a tricycle . These places include ;

  • The First Jose Rizal Monument
  • St John The Baptist Church
  • Kalayaan Park
  • Provincial Capital
  • Statue of Jose Rizal and Wenceslao Q Vinsons
  • Museo Bulawan Museum
  • Daet Municipal Building

Islands Close To Daet

Some of the islands close to daet are possible to visit in 1 day but an over night stay would be better . These islands are true paradise islands and are only a short boat ride away .

Island hopping further south at the survivor islands and Catanduanes would be a weekend end break at least to fully enjoy the places .

The Town of Jose Panganiban

At the Municipal Hall at Jose Panganiban you can find the remains of the Martyr and a Monument to him . Its about 50k from Daet to get there and then not far to the Pag-asa beach for a picnic and swim .

Or you can drive 10k from there to a white sand beach for a picnic and swim at Bulalakao Beach in Luklukan .

Another idea is to visit one of the waterfalls whilst you are in this area like the Pag-asa Falls, Binauaang Falls, Malatap Falls and the Maligaya Falls or the Twin Falls near Sta Elena

The Town Of Mercedes

Mercedes is definately a place to visit close to Daet you should go . Its The main fishing port of the province and is well worth experiencing the traditional whispering to buy the fish , get there early before 6am ! You can reach this place by tricycle for p100 return .

It is also one of the places to get a boat over to the islands . There town fiesta is always a good one (nice seafoods) its held 13th june and called caracol the towns full of fishermen and the bay full of there boats .

Lanot Beach with its spring is another day out which requires taking a boat . Colasi Falls has a drop of 25m and is set in an idealic forest , but it will take you 3 hours to hike there . Still fancy that ? ok take a jeepney to Baronage Colasi and Barangay Colas is the place .

The Town of Vinsons

This town used to be called Indan but was renamed Vinsons to honour Wenceslao Q Vinsons who was a local hero during the Japanese war . His old residence is now a shrine and a public library featuring his memorabilia .

Also in the town the Baroque style 400+ year old St Peter the Apostle Church stands . This is also one of the places to get a boat to the islands .

It is possible to get a special fare tricycle there (most dont like) or get a jeepney from the centro .

Naga City

Naga is a more developed place than Daet and has a Manila type mall , you can take a bus or van there easily and it will take 2 hours for the van (no smoking) or 3 hours via ordinary bus (smoking) .

If you take the bus when you arrive walk to the van terminal down the road , here you can get a free shuttle bus to C W C a large wakeboading resort .

Albay City

Here in Albay you will see Mt Mayon Volcano and at the foot in the shadows of it , its worth taking a look at the old ruins of a church and some native handicraft souvenir hunting .

The volcano is active and its a perfect cone shape , it is possible to ride up there on quad bikes(atv) or on the cheaper back seat of a normal bike with a driver .
For this day out you would need to rent a van and driver for the day which is quite easy expect the journey south to take about 3 hours and i guess from p2500 for the van .

Sorsogon City

This is possible as a long day out but better as an over night trip . Here from the town of Donsol you can go swimming with whale sharks (butanding) and also go on a firefly tour .

Expect 4 hours driving or longer , if you go by bus leave early . Get a cheap room in a motel in the city and do the firefly tour . Next day swim with the massive vegetarian whale sharks thenĀ come back to good ol Daet .

Caramoan Catanduanes and Masbate City

You might like to go visit the survivor islands of Caramoan or surf the famous Majestics surf break at Catanduanes . Masbate city has large fish santuaries with massive manta rays .

All these places to visit are easily reached from Daet , but the latter places would be more of a weekend break rather than a day out .
