Legaspi City in the Bicol Region is one of the Philippines’ leading tourist destination, and The Amazing Race Asia Season 4 had its episode 5 pit stop here.

World-famous for the Mayon Volcano and surrounding adventure spots and world class resorts like Misibis Bay Resort in Cagraray Island, it was again the opening highlight of TARA episode 6.

Recently, The Amazing Race Asia Season 4 Philippine Teams – The Richards and Lani Pillinger – enjoyed a viewing party with bloggers at the National Sports Grill in Greenbelt, Makati.

We watched the rerun of the pit stop in Legazpi City including Misibis Bay Resort, Cagsawa Ruins, and Lignon Hill which offers the best vantage point of Mt. Mayon and the cityscape. The telecast of episode 6 as the pit start in New Zealand followed on action and adventure cable channel AXN.

In summary, the Richards were able to hold their position until the pit stop at the Peak and won for themselves an extra vacation stay at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
