Among the many perks of being a celebrity: travelling.
They get to go on gigs abroad or become part of film projects shot outside the country, and can acquire a jet-setting lifestyle in the process.
And since their jobs pay well, they can take off to anywhere, any time they get the chance.
This year’s most-traveled celebrity went to 15 countries and flew out of the Philippines about 23 times.
The fellow: Tim Yap!
Last May, he went cruising in Dubai with James Reid and Nadine Lustre.
By mid-week, he was enjoying the sea, sand, and sun in the Maldives.
He held "office" in Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong, for a few days.
