" The Vampire Diaries " hottie star Ian Somerhalder travels to the Philippines for a clothing line photo shoot over the weekend.
The actor, who plays snarky vampire Damon Salvatore on the hit CW series, used some of his off time to visit the Philippines and pose for a Penshoppe clothing brand campaign photo shoot.
Ian is also planning on doing some sightseeing while there, as well as have a good time. It is not known whether his co-star, and real life girlfriend, Nina Dobrev has joined him on this trip yet, however. The pair are usually very hush-hush on their shared time, but they somehow always manage to have a couple of photos taken of themselves together when on vacation.
Speaking to ABS CBN News, Ian gushed about the welcome his fans gave him and how much he is enjoying his time abroad.
"It feels wonderful. This is a wonderful welcome. I love you guys! I've never been here so I'm excited to be here," Ian said, "The fans sound amazing already."
Meanwhile, Ian also took on to Twitter saying, "Reporting live from some beautiful island in the Philippines where it's on my time schedule impossible to sleep past 5AM:( SO beautiful here."
While in Manila, Ian was lucky enough to attend the Lady Gaga concert in Manila where he managed to send another tweet saying, "Watching my friend Miss Lady Gaga herself rock the hell out of the stage in Manila..."
Incidentally, Lady Gaga just recently dumped Ian's former "Diaries" co-star, and friend, Taylor Kinney , claiming she had no time for romance now that she's on tour.
You can catch Lady Gaga on the Perez Hilton special on CW69 on Thursday, May 24.
