If anyone wants to move to our city, she or he needs to understand the culture of our place is very far from the culture of urban places. Our city is a typical small town and it is not as progressive like others. Also, people in our city are not vulgar.

This area is best known to tourists for the chance to snorkel with whale sharks off the coast near Donsol, but it’s also an excellent area for activities such as hiking and caving. My most favorite place would be Subic and Tikling Beach in Matnog, a one hour drive from Sorsogon City, where I live. What I liked the most about Matnog this place was not only that it has a majestic view, but people were also charming and welcoming. We initially planned to stay and watch the beach under the trees, but they let us stay in one of the cottages for free. I’d love to recommend the place to someone looking for a relaxing vacation far from the metropolis.

Sorsogon City has several tourist spots you can visit. One of my favorite place would be the island of Paguriran which is in a small town called Bacon. The beach has a fine white sand, crystal clear water and majestic view. We usually go there during summer and cook barbecue with the gang.

We use jeepneys as our mode of transportation to travel or go to work everyday but we have a limited number of jeepneys so commuting everyday is a struggle. However, there are other means of transportation such as tricycle. Due to the increasing number of tricycle, we usually suffer from traffic congestion.
