Why going to Dumaguete is a waste of time

1. Seeing sea turtles swimming freely isn't interesting

2. Swimming with turtles up close is never a part of someone's bucket list.

3. There is nothing special about dolphins too

4. And food isnt that great

5. Not even a Korean can enjoy...

"두마게테섬여행은 즐거움, 신기함 그자체였습니다.
아포섬의 거북이와 돌고래 구경은 평생 잊지못할것입니다.
그리고 맛집들이 곳곳에 있어서 먹거리 걱정도 하지않아도 되었습니다
이다음에 기회가 된다면, 꼭 다시 방문하고 싶습니다
즐거운 사람들과 즐겁고 행복한 여행을 할 수있어서 정말 행복하였습니다."
