To all travel bugs out there, here’s another exciting show featuring presidential son Sebastian “Baste” Duterte. Yes! You did not read it wrong, the 29 year old bachelor has finally decided to jump into the bandwagon of celebrities in showbizlandia courtesy of TV5’s “Lakbai”.
“Lakbai” is a condensed take on the Visayan phrase “lakaw ta, bai” or “let’s go, friend.” It is also a play on the Filipino word “lakbay” which means “to travel.”
“Wala eh, hindi ko na mapigilan kasi, ‘di ba? Nag-decide na lang ako to try show biz” shares a very candid Duterte, very similar to the at times cool disposition of his famous dad.

“If this doesn’t work out, puwede naman akong umuwi sa Davao”. he added.
But that won’t happen just yet because a lot of people are very interested in the life of Baste and here’s hoping that everyone will see him in a different light by travelling around the country with his best travel friends.
The eight-part “adventure-travel-reality” TV show will also feature Duterte's very close travel buddies.
Say hello to lawyer Alexis Lumbatan, S’Boi Malicay and Andrei Apostol. Another famous son of a famous writer/actor/comedian/host (Joey de Leon) Jako de Leon also appears with Baste.
Also a Davaoeno, YouTube sensation Bogart The Explorer can be considered as one of the funniest and most entertaining travel guide there is!
Nothing beats travelling with people close to you. The fun that awaits is nothing short of memorable.
Lakbai premieres this May 21 (Sunday) after the PBA.
