Down in the South tip of Luzon lies an adventure that awaits. Matnog Island still undeciphered for at least in most Tourist maps. Matnog is a 4 hours drive from city of Legazpi, you can ride a public bus or a van going to Bulan, Sorsogon. Tell the driver to drop you off at the Matnog and Bulan Intersection (landmark is the Lion Clubs moument, this is the intersection between Bulan and Matnog).
