At one point in life, everyone decides to go on a journey on their own. Some do it for self-discovery and come back with a fresh state of mind and a renewed outlook in life, while others become lucky enough to get something more than that in return.
Travelling itself is already an unforgettable experience. You get to broaden your understanding of the world and connect with different people from all walks of life that you otherwise wouldn’t have met.
TLC, a global lifestyle and entertainment destination, proves just that in its newest show, Travel for Love, where five hopefuls go on a wondrous adventure with an added romantic twist.

Hailing from different countries across Southeast Asia, these micro influencers, including one from the Philippines, travel to different cities in the region to discover cultures and cuisines and search for one thing in common: a deeper connection.
The Self-professed Filipina Island Girl
Meet Samantha del Carmen, a city girl from Manila, Philippines, who loves going to the beach. She loves extreme adventures and is very family-oriented. As she flies to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and experiences paragliding and diving with sharks, will she also be able to find someone who understands that family and career are her topmost priority and any romantic relationship comes in second?
The Quirk Parisian Fashion Designer
Honey Khanum is of Punjabi and Pakistani descent and a costume designer by profession. It has always been her dream to have an “Eat, Pray, Love” kind of vacation but is not exactly a romantic. Will visiting Bohol in the Philippines change her perception about love?
The Adventurous Tech Consultant
Tony Zarski is a New Yorker who’s proud of his Korean and Polish roots and moved to Singapore to further his career as a tech consultant. Since he’s half Korean, he’s very partial to dating only Korean women. Will travelling to Dalat, Vietnam allow him to date outside his comfort zone?
The Classical Singer
Mariska Setiawan hails from Indonesia and is of Javanese, Chinese, and German ancestry. She is a full-time musician with a penchant for sketching and she enjoys travelling on her own. With someone as adventurous as she is, will she be able to find someone who enjoys the same things as she does as she makes a trip to Kuching, Malaysia?
The International Communications Student
Lastly, there’s Tahanee Shauki, the beautiful, independent International Communications student from Johor, Malaysia. She’s always been the one in control when it comes to relationships and has always had the last say in everything. As she visits Yogyakarta, Indonesia, will this change as she finds someone who can read beyond her happy face?
Join Samantha, Honey, Tony, Mariska, and Tahanee as they discover the different sights, cuisines, and adventures and go on blind dates on the way on the premiere of Travel for Love on Friday, 14 February, at 09:25PM, only on TLC (Sky Cable CH 32/Cignal TV CH 64/Destiny Cable CH 62).
