Travelling in Asia

Regular travel features from South Asia and South East Asia.

A journalist from Channel 4 and a photographer from Rex Features have resigned from their jobs in London to embark on an exciting one way journey to Australia. Their trip starts in Calcutta and carries on up through West Bengal, taking in the tiger wildlife parks, until they reach the Buddhist Kingdoms of Bhutan and Nepal. Their itinerary then leads on to New Delhi, Goa, Singapore, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Borneo and Malaysia.

Share their ups, downs and risks as they attempt to mix in with the local communities and compare their experiences to life in England. They promise to bring you pictures and interesting insights into other ways of life.

1) Calcutta – city of chaos, kindness and class
2) Calcutta's warriors against poverty
3) Darjeeling – admire mountains from a seat in the clouds
4) Bhutan – Land of the Thunder Dragon, a fairy-tale brought to life
5) White water rafting thrills in Nepal
6) Goa – does it still deserve its legendary status?
7) Goa – a personal view
