    The trip by bus is about 10 hours. You can take a Philtranco bus as they have coach service (with lazy boy type seat and toilet on board) for a comfortable trip. The bus terminal is less than 10 mins by cab from airport terminal 3 and about 15 from terminal 1 & 2. Other bus lines are available in Cubao bus hub, about an hour's ride from the airport.

    Alternatively, you can take a plane, about 45mins trip. Check out Cebu Pacific and PAL.

    If you really want to take the bus, I suggest taking the Cagsawa Bus vs Philtranco. Cagsawa has nicer and cleaner buses. They also have the lazy boy type seats. I would go for Cagsawa bus if I'm unable to find a flight to Legazpi. There are buses leaving in the morning, but the night trips are more frequent. If it's not a peak season, you can just go to the terminal to purchase your ticket and hop on the bus. Otherwise, you may have to call beforehand and inquire whether there are still seats available. A few years ago, the best one costs 1100php (25USD) per person, one way, I think they call it the royale class, or business royale. Travel time is 10-11 hours, with 2 30-minute stops for meal breaks.

    But if you're online now, there is an ongoing PAL promo, but you only have an hour to book as it ends in midnight tonight. (philippineairlines.com) Travel time 45 mins, 1 hour tops. One way ticket costs around 600php (15USD)

    For accommodations, I heard Legazpi Tourist Inn has cheap rates (10-15USD/night).
