Recently, the Pinoy Boy Band Superstar judge took part in Korean travel-variety program Battle Trip, where two teams would travel and relate their adventures afterwards. The television viewers would then vote for the better travel spot. It is the television viewers who would vote for the country that the teams would visit.
Park showcased a bit of the Philippines, and becoming a tourism ambassador of some sort.
Sandara said that people often ask her if it’s safe to go there, and that she wanted them to know that it is safe to go there.
She said, ‘People usually ask if it is safe to go on a trip.
‘The bad news tend to be exaggerated, so I wanted to let people know it’s safe there.
‘Filipinos are the kindest people in the world, but they only show crimes that happened in the Philippines.’
She called the trip “Dara Tour”.
She brought a friend with her to Manila, Hyoni, and it was there she found out about how famous Sandara was in the Philippines.
She even thought ‘Sandara’ was the Filipino word for ‘Hello.’ At a villa, Sandara met up with Joross Gamboa, Ryan Bang, and Robi Domingo.
