The trip to Albay wouldn't be complete without a glimpse of the Mayon Volcano's world-famous perfect cone, and just seeing it makes one wonder how it would feel like to be on its slopes. Mayon Skyline allows visitors to experience and see firsthand the thrilling and breathtaking sights that this attraction has to offer.
The Mayon Skyline is nestled on the eastern slopes of Mt. Mayon at an altitude of 2,700 ft. It is an excellent summer resort with almost similar temperatures to Baguio at 28 degrees Celsius. It is popularly known as “heaven on earth” because of the hanging clouds and the pleasant climate where cool and invigorating air could be experienced. From this height, the visitors can see the panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean and the different towns, lakes, villages, fields and other mountains.

How to get there
Deep in the heart of Bicol is the Province of Albay. Take the bus, train or the plane from Manila.
Albay can be reached by plane through the Legazpi Airport. It is served by Philippine Airlines, Air Philippines and Cebu Pacific flying daily to Legazpi from Manila or vice versa. The approach to Legazpi Airport commands a bird's eye view of the majestic Mayon Volcano-Albay's pride. Take the seat nearest the window on the forward section of the aircraft; the wings can get in the way of your view.
Several buses leave Manila daily to Legazpi like Cagsawa Travel and Tours, Inc., Philtranco, Peñafrancia, Amihan (AM) Travel and Tours, Isarog, St. Jude Transit and Goldline Tours, Inc. The terminals are located at the Araneta Center in Cubao and in Ermita, Manila near the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Travel during the day is cool. The lush green scenery is magnificent. Drop by the clean rest areas at the forest reserves of Atimonan in Quezon Province or at the Bicol National Park. The trip is as good as the destination itself.
From Legazpi, you can take a van going to Tabaco City.
Buses and jeepney’s are generally the main mode of transportation in getting around Albay’s destinations. Pedicabs and tricycles are also available for short distance travels. Taxis and rent-a-cars are also available.
