What to do !!!

Hi Everyone,

I am booked to travel to the Philippines on the 21st of May for a month with my partner. We are spending two nights in Manilla, flying down to donsol for 4 nights, flying to Palawan for about two weeks and then back to Manilla to travel north to the rice terorities etc for the remainder of the trip.

Quick question, we know its crazy late in the season to see whale sharks and we are very unlikely to see any in Donsol. What else is their to do there? We have heard firefly watching can be pretty cool and i am sure its great for snorkeling, any suggestions would be great. Thanks

If you are in Sorsogon, one place that's not to miss is the Paguriran Island in the Bacon District --- tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g678562-d1…

And if you are in Legazpi/Albay (arriving there by plane and then taking the bus to Sorsogon, back and forth), you can also see Mayon Volcano up close by visiting the Cagsawa Park or the Lignon Hill.

You are right - the fire fly watching is excellent! and far more assured than being able to see whale sharks. I highly recommend it.

The snorkeling at Donsol was absolute rubbish!
