Travelling may become more difficult in a post-pandemic world but Ryan Pyle, host of “Expedition Asia,” a 10-episode travel series which premiered June 2 on Discovery Channel on SKY, hopes that shows like his could fill the void and offer ideas that may suit the new normal.
“I hope a TV show like ‘Expedition Asia’ is going to give people a lot of ideas about what to do when they can travel again because expeditions are a great way to social distance,” Pyle said.
The series will feature high-powered activities in Asian countries. Aside from the Philippines, the show will feature China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Taiwan, Kyrgyzstan, Thailand, India and Hong Kong.
“For our Philippines episode, we climbed Mt. Apo because I had no idea before I did this series that Mt. Apo was over 3,000 meters high… It was wonderful and a new experience for me because previously I’d only known that the Philippines has beaches and scuba diving,” Pyle shared.
“Expedition Asia” airs Tuesdays at 9:50 p.m. on Discovery Channel (Ch. 39 SD/ Ch. 180 HD in Metro Manila, Rizal, Cavite, Laguna, Bulacan and Batangas; and Ch. 205 SD/Ch. 720 HD in Baguio, Bacolod, Iloilo, Cebu, Dumaguete, Davao and Gen.
