Leonardo DiCaprio is to Visit Albay Province, Philippines, next Month

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio will be treated like an ordinary tourist when he visits Albay province next month.

The Hollywood actor will not be allowed to climb the Mayon volcano or go near the lava front, just like everyone else!

Mayon Volcano, renowned as a "perfect cone" for its nearly symmetrical shape, is a popular spot for nature lovers and mountaineers.

Recently, however, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHILVOLCS) said the area is unsafe for any human activity since the volcano is still emitting gases and lava, following fears of an imminent eruption late last year.

Joyce Ramirez, director for international publicity at PR Asia Worldwide, earlier invited DiCaprio to visit Albay to spearhead an environmental awareness project.

She said the actor will be staying at the Misibis Bay, an "ultra-luxurious" resort.

It is not yet known how long DiCaprio will be staying in the province.
