NEW YORK, Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Travel Savvy TV, dedicated to bringing destinations to life through interviews with in-the-know locals, just released three new episodes to their dedicated Travel Savvy TV channel, each featuring host Paula Keung as she travels and explores the southern region of Louisiana. "This amazing state is mind-blowingly beautiful, and offers so many opportunities to bird watch, fish, camp, hike, and eat locally," enthused host Paula. "Our latest videos gives viewers a glimpse of the hundreds of wildlife species we saw and caught on camera."
In the first video of the trio, titled "A Fisherman's Paradise," Ms. Keung ventures into the waters of Toledo Bend Lake, along the state's border with Texas, to try her hand at bass fishing with professional guide Darold Gleason, before heading down south to explore the Mississippi River Delta region with the help of Captain Shane Mayfield. In the video, Paula also visits the elegantly restored Woodland Plantation, where she encounters an alligator named Boots.
Also released this week is the video "Explore the Outdoors in Greater Baton Rouge," focusing on the many opportunities to camp, hike, and backpack around the state's capital city. Ms. Keung tours the nation's largest wetlands, the Atchafalaya Basin, and sits with BSA Swamp Base guides and conservationists Ben Pierce and Skip Andaya to talk about the basin's history.
The third video, "Keeping It Local In Covington," focuses on the state's plentiful ecotourism opportunities and how today's traveler can help further the preservation of the state's natural wonders. After talking with eco-tour guides Chad and Byron Almquist, American Idol finalist Lauren Turner chats with Ms. Keung about the local craft beer scene.
Travel Savvy's explorations in the Bayou State took place in partnership with Louisiana Travel, the state's official travel authority. "We're so pleased to share a slice of beauty from central and south Louisiana with the world," says Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser. "Travelers should come and see, taste, and experience Louisiana for themselves to truly know what we have to offer."
The videos are shot and produced in partnership with Chatty Cat Productions, a full-service video company based in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami.
