The cheapest way in exploring the province of Albay is through jeepneys at a minimum fare of 8 pesos. But during my stay in Legazpi, I was so confused with the jeepney routes and the specific signage or destinations to take. I kept on asking the barkers or locals before riding the vehicle to secure that it will pass by the landmark I planned to go. For you to survive the jeepney routes and explore Albay the cheapest way possible, I’ll share with you the jeepney routes found in the Travel Guide of Albay. (Credits goes to the Provincial Tourism Office of Albay for providing me a detailed guide to exploring the province.)
