Most traveler love to explore scary places. Most traveler love to go scuba diving. And some loves to climb the mountain. And some of the traveler is simply just to wanted to explore the Philippines and see everything about the country.
Well recently I decide to explore my hometown Mindanao. I really wanted to explore again where I grew up, but this time I didn’t have much time. So I just decided to meet up with my cousin and niece in Dipolog City. See what this town has to offer and what adventure I can do. We only stay 5 days in Dipolog City. I can tell you if you are from Mindanao Philippines you would definitely love the simplicity of Dipolog City. Its very peaceful town with a lot of harmony. And if you love sunset you will fall in love with this town. Dipolog is not a big City but its very comforting and everything is very cheap.
If you love the simplicity life you would love Dipolog city. Everything is very easy to access if you are hungry. All you need is take the tricycle to boulevard or any corner. They have all the little Calenderia or small restaurant and its really cheap. I just love going to the market and eat the hot chicken soup or fish soup. Specially in the morning. And Dipolog still have the quality of old tradition way of the Philippines. Which you won’t find a lot of tourist here. And I am hoping that they won’t change this town, because its just beautiful the way it is now. But probably because this blog that I made it will make the tourist interested to come to Dipolog City.
But anyway I just really love to share my thoughts about this place. Because I am really tired of huge City like Cebu City or Manila. Its really polluted and smell disgusting, which make you feel sick. At least here in Dipolog I can breath properly. I would definitely love to bring my husband here and ask his thoughts about this place. I would say he would love it. Well what makes Dipolog beautiful, is that they are a small City and not too crowded. And they don’t have a taxi,or jeepney or any polluted auto. Dipolog is very simple and its way cheaper than bohol or Manila or Cebu. The only thing Dipolog that doesn’t have is a beautiful beach. There is not much things to do in Dipolog City except the Boulevard Sunset.
