Celebrities work hard making and promoting TV shows and movies. They spend most of the year shooting, but just like many, they too, need time to rest. But where do they fly to take a break from the glaring lights?

 

With summer just around the corner, fans are surely more than curious to know what’s on their favorite artist’s travel itinerary. Here’s looking back at some of the Kapuso stars’ most memorable escapes inside and outside of the country.

Favorite travel destination in the Philippines:

“Cebu—Because aside from being the home of the tastiest lechon, it is also the home of white beaches.  Not to mention the night market, the night life, secret caves, virgin forests, and kayaking sites.  There are just so many random things to do in Cebu.”

Most memorable travel destination outside the country:

“Europe—I spent a month in Europe with my family. We travelled from one country to another.  Everything, every moment, was like being in a fairytale.  We went to famous tourist spots that I had just seen in the movies.”

Gwen Zamora (Bubble Gang)

GMA Pinoy TV welcomes the new year with a fresh lineup of programs that are sure to excite Filipino audiences overseas.

A story of love and obsession will be brought to international television screens this January 21 with the premiere of The Borrowed Wife starring Camille Prats, TJ Trinidad, Rafael Rosell and Pauleen Luna. Focusing on the question, “Is there reason enough for a spouse to become someone else’s lover?” the series takes viewers into the lives of four characters bound together by a secret that will set them onto an interconnected path towards love and redemption.

On January 28, three more shows will be launched on GMA’s flagship international channel. The first of these will see Primetime Queen Marian Rivera paired for the very first time with GMA Artist Center’s prime leading man Alden Richards in the new and absorbing drama series, Carmela. The story will see its title character forced to make heart-wrenching decisions as she struggles with being judged because of her beauty and with a love that can never be.

GMA Pinoy TV subscribers will also see a compelling new drama that will challenge viewers to discover the nuances of personal relationships and encourage them to examine how deeply they know their loved ones. Jennylyn Mercado, Yasmien Kurdi, Mark Herras, and Mark Anthony Fernandez star in this new series entitled Rhodora X, which will also premiere on January 28.

Rounding out this year’s January lineup is Paraiso Ko’y Ikaw, a beautiful tale of true love that defies all odds. The series, which features sought-after Kapuso teen stars Kristoffer Martin and Kim Rodriguez and introducing Phytos Ramirez, will begin airing on January 28.

This February 18, Max Collins and Luis Alandy will engage viewers in Innamorata, an intriguing story of the dangers of losing one’s self in wanting someone or something so much.

Furthermore, GMA Pinoy TV continues to bring even more fun, laughter and entertainment to Pinoys abroad with the latest episodes of the comedy game show Celebrity Bluff hosted by the award-winning comedienne/actress Eugene Domingo with Jose Manalo, GMA’s original creation Picture! Picture! with Ryan Agoncillo as game master, the musical variety show Sunday All Stars, the longest-running showbiz-oriented talk show Startalk, and the first ever reality-sitcom Pepito Manaloto, an original concept from award-winning comedian/actor Michael V.
