Daet is the capital town of the province of Camarines Norte, Philippines. This is where Bicol Region (Region V) begins. The town is quite industrialized though the feel of the province is still there. And nearby towns are mostly in agricultural land.
Most of my father side relatives live here. Since all my life I have been only living in the southern part of the Philippines, I was really glad to visit this place. The sad part was I got to visit to be in my grandfather’s twins’ funeral. I hope next time; I can visit for a vacation.
