MANILA - Nuseir Yassin, more popularly known for his Nas Daily vlogs, is using his platform to show the Philippines’ efforts to rehabilitate its beaches and other natural attractions.
The Israeli vlogger is back in Manila upon the invitation of the Department of Tourism (DOT), and for a meet and greet with his Filipino fans and viewers.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Friday, Yassin said he has always wanted to report about the topic after learning of the news of Boracay being closed to the public last year to give the island “time to heal.”
“This is something I’ve wanted to do for a while. I’ve always wanted to showcase the rehabilitation efforts that you guys are doing. I heard a lot about the closing down of Boracay, tearing down walls and all those things. I wanted to see it for myself and report on it,” he said.
When asked if the DOT has made him a tourism ambassador like young celebrity Scarlet Snow Belo and Canadian vlogger Kyle “Kulas” Jennermann, Yassin replied: “No, I’m just here for one project for them.”
The Nas Daily vlogger went on to share that he and his team visited different beach spots in the Philippines for their video, which will be released on Facebook next week.
“We went to El Nido, we went to Boracay, we went to Puerto Galera, we went to Manila Bay. We went to most of the rehabilitation places as well,” Yassin said, adding that he is excited for the final output of their project.
