Next time you go on a trip to Albay, go a little off the tourist track and find your way to breathtaking Quitinday Green Hills in Albay where you can take a snap of yourself and definitely up your selfie game. Quitinday Green Hills, dubbed by some as the Chocolate Hills of the Bicol region, located 481km southeast of Manila, is a series of low rise rolling hills, looking best when they’re green, and made more scenic on a clear day when majestic Mount Mayon, dubbed the perfect cone for its almost symmetrical slopes, peeks in the background.  

Here are other breathtaking snaps of Quitinday Green Hills. 


174. The view from this spot is simply breathtaking. Oh, that is Mayon at the back. ????

How to get there
Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific fly from Manila to Legazpi City. From Legazpi Airport, take a tricyle to the capitol area and hop on a jeepney bound for Camalig. In Camalig, get off the main town center and hire a tricyle or habal-habal that can take you to Quitinday Green Hills, a 30-minute ride. Better yet, ask the jeepney driver to drop you off at the tourism office where a staff can advise on what transportation to take best and the standard commute rates. If you have enough budget, hire a van for a whole day’s use. Vans for hire are available right outside Legazpi Airport and at the Legazpi Integrated Terminal, a tricyle ride away from the airport.
