In Focus: Rediscover The Beauty Of The Philippines Through Sandara Park's Eyes

"In Korea, in the news and in the newspapers, a lot of unfortunate events have been reported. That's why a lot of people think it's dangerous. I want the people to realize that the Philippines isn't entirely dangerous. I'll show you a new side to the Philippines," says Sandara Park in an interview for Korean travel-variety show, Battle Trip

For Episode 19 of the said show, Sandara Park and fashion model Hyoni Kang wander around the Philippines to show to their fellow Koreans, and to everybody else, just how beautiful and how fun it is in our country.


Sandara categorized their trips into two level tour packages, the "beginner" and "intermediate" course. For the beginner course, the girls went to Bonifacio High Street to explore the city's stores and restaurants where they also got to take cute snaps of themselves just like this one:

And their next destination? The pool villa in Laguna where Sandara invited her celebrity best friends, Joross Gamboa, Ryan Bang, and Robi Domingo. Here, they enjoyed a night of swimming, bonding, and karaoke singing.

Getting through the woods and enjoying a guided horseback trail riding in the rocky mountains of Mount Taal is definitely a wonderful way to explore the beauty of the Philippines, according to these awesome ladies. 

They also tried to find Nemo and yes, they did: They even found many! Those, plus our trademark turtles and different species of fish as you they went snorkeling in Balicasag Island, Bohol.
