The digital travel series will follow Robi’s six-week journey as he lands from one destination to the next, including Basey and Calbiga in Samar, Iloilo, Bacolod, Mt. Apo in Davao Del Sur, Malapascua and Bantayan Islands in Cebu, Bukidnon, Cagayan De Oro, and Iligan City. Each episode will be around five minutes long.
Robi Goes Local
Robi fully embraces his ‘lakwatsero’ moniker in this series as he tries everything that each place has to offer—from mouthwatering food spreads and one-of-a-kind concoctions, to conquering the great outdoors and enjoying jitters, laughs, and solo traveling surprises. In his discoveries on how to get the best experiences in each destination he hopes to inspire viewers to set new travel goals and explore the Philippines.
Cebu Pacific is Robi’s Travel Buddy
Serving as the ultimate travel buddy to the ultimate ‘lakwatsero’ is Cebu Pacific Air, the leader in fun travels. With the most extensive route network across the Philippines, Cebu Pacific is helping Robi fit convenience and greater value in his busy itinerary, all while discovering the vast selection of destinations.
GO Hotels and Summit Hotels are Robi’s Home Base
Go Hotels and Summit Hotels and Resorts also served as home base for Robi, as the ‘lakwatsero’ gained unique experiences and immersed in various places in the country.
Travels Will Also be Vlogged
