by lakwatserong tatay

Our first night out in the City of Legazpi.Our host xplorerboy Johari, tells us about this mall that can be a counterpart of Greenbelt, Glorieta, Trinoma and also Mall of Asia. Embarcadero is a major waterfront development in Legzapi that will become a destination both local and international tourist alike. Adding to this there is also a street that is very well known to the locals were every night caters different delicacies. This is the street between Quezon Ave. and Rizal St. that every night you could choose from different street foods and served meals. Of course, even though personally i a fan of eating street foods in Manila, this different because we are own Legazpi.

And now lets start with previous history of Embarcadero is one of the most anticipated developments in the city of Legazpi. It started last July 18, 2009. Embarcadero is a major waterfront development located at the harbor area of Legazpi City adjacent to the alluring Kapuntukan Hill (also known as Sleeping Lion Hill).

Embarcadero will offer a mix of retail, restaurants, markets, and shops. There will also be a civic space and an imposing 30 meters tall lighthouse that could become one of the iconic symbols of Legazpi. Aside from the 12,000 square meter commercial area, there will also be a future 14,500 square meter waterfront hotel, spa and convention center and a 15,477 square meter Information Technology (IT) Park, envisioned to provide thousands of BPO jobs for Bicolanos.

Aside from that there will be a waterfront promenade, with theatrical lighting and performance spaces creating a lively, family friendly environment during the day and night. Visitors to this mall will enjoy a stunning view of Mayon Volcano and the cityscape to the north and the Albay Gulf to the east.

We ended the night happy and very contented. Just to add, Embarcadero has also pioneered eco-friendly transportation in the Bicol Region by introducing Electric Jeepneys or e-Jeeps. These e-Jeeps carry visitors to and from Embarcadero free of charge. There are currently four e-Jeeps in operation, with plans to add more in the future. With the e-Jeeps roaming around the city, it is very easy to get to Embarcadero from the Legazpi Port District.
