Bicol Region- Region V is located in the southernmost tip of the Luzon island. It is composed of 6 provinces- Albay, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Sorsogon, Catanduanes and Masbate.
The people in this region are called “Bicolanos”. They speak “Bikolano” but for whatever reasons the provinces have their own Bikolano language. Most people know how to speak Tagalog and English. However, the 2 islands lying closer to the Visayas Island- Masbate and Sorsogon speak a combination of Visayan and Bikolano languages.
Naga City is the capital of Camarines Sur. It is one of the developing cities in the country where the locals find their way of living.
The people here are traditional and conservative that I think is good since these characteristics are slowly fading away due to the modern world. They have a sweet tone of voice like the people of Cebu (Cebuanos) but in a different way. They are also known for their spicy and hot dishes.
Most people here are devoted Catholics. The Peṅafrancia Festival in Naga City is the highlighted event celebrated every 3rd Sunday of September. I really admire how these people strongly express their faith. It’s really one of a kind! You might want to include them on your list as one of the largest Marian devotion you’ve ever seen.
