This 3rd class municipality in the province of Sorsogon is among the top tourist destination, not only in Bicol, but in the whole country. For over 100 years, this municipality has seen yearly visits from whale sharks, locally known as butanding. Tourists are allowed to swim with these gentle giants. In fact, in 2004, Time magazine featured swimming with whale sharks as the Best Animal Encounter in Asia.
Donsol is also well known for its dishes. Among the famous dishes that tourists are recommended to try is “laing” or “gabi”, which is dried and cooked in coconut cream with cuts of fish and pork.
Although not as popular as whale shark encounter, firefly tour and shrimp-catching night tour are also a great treat for local and foreign tourists.
Matnog is another 3rd class municipality in Sorsogon, which just recently has gained popularity amongst local tourists because of its beaches. Subic Beach and Tikling Island offer pinkish-white fine sands, relatively calm sea and spectacular view.
Many tourists who have visited these places have compared them to Boracay. The only difference is that these are untouched by civilization and although there are cottages, there are no hotels in these areas.
