    ‘Biyahe ni Drew’ is back with fresh episodes

    GMA Public Affairs’ award-winning travel and adventure program Biyahe ni Drew (BND) is back with fresh episodes.

    As most of the country is now under GCQ (General Community Quarantine), local governments are trying to encourage tourists to travel again while practicing the necessary safety precautions, of course. This is the experience of program host Drew Arellano and the BND team as they produced their first fresh episode of BND in eight months.

    Last Friday, Drew explored Doña Remedios Trinidad or DRT in Bulacan for a bit of adventure and some good eats. For those who love the great outdoors, DRT is the perfect destination.  The Thirteen Falls are true wonders of nature and DRT’s own version of Chocolate Hills, known as Tila Pilon Hills, are a refreshing sight, especially after months of quarantine. The BND team also trekked up Kabayunan to witness the Sea of Clouds. Drew also tastes two simple yet very satisfying dishes — pinaputok na tilapia sa buho and binalukawang manok.

    “Biyahe ni Drew” airs fresh episodes every Friday, 9:15 p.m. on GMA News TV.
