Lakbai: Baste Duterte, Bogart the Explorer and friends Hosts New Travel Adventure Show via TV5

10:12:00 PM

Traveling around and exploring new places is one of the best things you can do for yourself. 
I've been traveling to different places for years now simply because it's one way to detoxify myself from the stress that I got from work, at home and more. 

Traveling gives me the best experience to learn more about other people, their cultures/traditions and the landscapes of different places. My blog is my testimony on how I love traveling plus I also share tips and directions on how to get to that destination. 

You can’t imagine how different life is in another place until you see for yourself. Everything from work to family to beliefs to interests is not what you might expect from your own experience. The different setting will also help you discover and consider fresh ideas you hadn’t thought of before. You’ll come home with different notions and possibilities.

By being exposed to new places, people and cultures, you’ll develop a wider world view. And that will make you a better-rounded global citizen.

Since a lot of us have been enjoying traveling, TV5 launches their newest reality travel-adventure show hosted by no less than the Presidential son Sebastian "Baste" Duterte together with his close friends Atty. Alexis Lumbatan, a lawyer by profession and a jokester at heart, Sboi Malicay, the cool bro who keeps the mood light, Andrei Apostol, creative guy and designated videographer and internet sensation, Bogart the Explorer, who is known for his hilarious adventures as seen in his viral videos.

Meet the Hosts of "Lakbai" on TV5

Lakbai, short for “Lakaw ta, bai!” which translates to “Lakad na, kaibigan.” is a one of a kind TV show that takes the viewers on a tour of some of the most picturesque spots in the Philippines with Baste, Bogart and their friends.

Lakbai is not just another travel program showcasing the country’s views and food. This 8-week special is about a group of bros who find the best places to have a travel adventure. The show will make the audience see the Philippines in a whole new light. In every episode, the hosts will explore a location and participate in local activities that would leave them feeling a connection with that place.

Speaking of the hosts, Lakbai brings together a set of adventurers bonded by their spirit of fun and love of travel. Making his TV show debut is presidential son and social media rockstar, Sebastian “Baste” Duterte. This reality adventure show is in Bisaya as well as Tagalog. For the first time ever, viewers will get to discover the adventurous side of Baste and see more of his personality as he interacts with the local people they meet. 

At the show’s press conference last May 10, Baste was asked whether any member of his family convinced him to join show business.

“No, they did not convince me. It’s just unavoidable so I decided to try showbiz. Sayang naman ang sweldo, but if it doesn’t work out, I can always go back to Davao.”

Many wondered how he handled himself in front of the camera during the show’s first taping days. Did he have any of his showbiz friends give him tips on what to do?

“Sino ba showbiz friends ko? It’s only … you guys know who. But this is only a reality show. I’m being myself so it’s not really a big adjustment on my part,” he replied both casually and meaningfully.

The main question is what is it really like to be the President’s son.

“That’s the hardest question I’ve had today,” Duterte joked. “Let your father run and be president para malaman n’yo. But my life then and now is still the same. I don’t live in Malacañang so I’m still Davao-based. It’s just now, maraming nagpapa-picture, maraming libre at maraming sponsors. Kaya yung mga gustong mag-offer sa akin huwag na kayo mahiya,” 

He also reacted on being labeled one of the day’s hottest bachelors, he replied laughing, “Talaga? Nasaan sila? Saan yung mga babae kung totoo ‘yun?”
