Laurel

This town with just over 35,000 people, is a developing town, working on its tourism by preparing its natural spots to be suitable for visitors. Now, they are managing their town’s economy with agricultural activities like fishing and farming, and real estate.

In the aftermath of the 1911 eruption of the Taal Volcano, there was naturally formed black cinder of ashes after the explosion. The cinder was then inhabited by a few people. Back then the place was called, “Buga” (spit) because of how it was first formed. And later on, the population grew and many agricultural activities were practiced, which started their community. Today, with its economy still being fully supported by agricultural activities and products, Laurel is in the hopes to soon open its doors to tourism.

The government is slowly transitioning its natural and man-made attractions to be ready for tourists to visit and pay for. Soon enough, the town will have more to show for than its interesting history.
