TESTIMONIALS

As the trip progressed strangers became friends. Particularly special was the effortlessness: perfect logistics, never having to worry about anything, and, of course, the charming and thoughtful way you organised everything.
Selected testimonials from the Aman Jet Journey, March 2016

Bicol

The Bicol Region forms the southeast peninsula of Luzon, the largest island in the Philippine archipelago. The almost perfectly conical Mount Mayon volcano is Bicol's most iconic sight, though there are increasingly more with the development of tourism in the region. Still an active volcano, Mayon draws adventurers who trek to its bubbling crater. For the less daring, there are many crater lakes and hot springs in the area as well.

Beneath the surface, one can find Bicol's most famous residents, the whalesharks of Donsol. These gentle giants can be seen between February and May, when they linger in the plankton-rich bay for feeding. Add to that charming colonial churches, pretty beaches, limestone cliffs and a long, Pacific coastline spanning the region, and Bicol is arguably one of the Philippines' best destinations.

On your visit, make sure to feast on the regional cuisine, notable for its generous use of fiery chilies and coconut milk.
