MANILA – Amid her hectic schedule, Jessica Sanchez finally found time to explore the Philippines during her fourth visit to the country this year.

After headlining a New Year’s countdown show at Eastwood in Quezon City last December 31, Sanchez traveled to Bataan, which is the native town of her mom.

She was accompanied by her grandparents and two aunts.

The young singer also went to Subic in Zambales where she saw a dolphin show at the Ocean Adventure.

Aside from traveling up north, Sanchez also made sure to see the beauty of Boracay in the Visayas.

In an Instagram post, the “American Idol” runner-up compared the popular island to a paradise.

She also shared a picture of herself by the beach, which now has over 5,000 “likes.”

This is the first time Sanchez was able to see parts of the Philippines just for pleasure.

In early December, she was also in the country to help in the relief operations for the victims of super typhoon Yolanda. At that time, Sanchez got to visit General Santos City and Batangas.
