Hector – Ó Siberia go Saigon

The greatest, the longest, the most epic journey Hector has ever done begins in one of the most sparsely populated regions on Earth. He’s 3,500 kms from Moscow, the capital of Russia but stuck deep in a place where exiles and prisoners were sent for 1000’s of years. Yes – Hector is beginning his greatest adventure of them all deep in Siberia. In 8 week’s time, having stepped out of Russia, crossed Mongolia and China, entered Nepal and crossed Bangladesh, Burma, Thailand and Cambodia he will end up sunning himself in Saigon, a journey of over 8,000 kms.
This Week:
Beginning in the metropolis of Chongqing the fastest-growing urban centre on the planet, Hector checks out the panda auto car sharing phenomenon before taking the bullet train to Chengdu where he has some fun with the Giant Panda. He then heads for the dog swimming pool, gets an insight into the music scene with China’s next big thing, all girls band, The Hormones then journeying South to noodle country and further South to Dali and it’s chilled out hippy life of music, mountains and tea plantations.
