[edit] Information

Dara and Ed's Road to Mandalay: Series 1 Ed Byrne and Dara O Briain embark on an expedition of a lifetime, crossing 3,500 miles from the bright lights of modern day Malaysia to the jungles of Myanmar

[edit] Malaysia

Arriving in downtown Kuala Lumpur, Dara and Ed are keen to see beyond the bright lights and towering skyscrapers of Malaysia's economic boom and find out how Malaysia's diverse communities are holding on to their own traditions and ways of life. They begin by doing what the locals do on a Saturday afternoon and watch a beauty pageant - for chickens - before joining a mass cycle ride through the city.

[edit] Thailand

In Thailand, Dara and Ed fly into Phuket and experience an island that is sinking under the weight of booming tourism. They meet up with a local environmentalist campaigning to protect Phuket's wildlife and help out at a turtle conservation centre, returning two turtles to the sea. Moving on to the mainland, Dara and Ed travel to the capital city of Bangkok, which recently became the most visited city in the world.

[edit] Myanmar

Dara and Ed arrive in Yangon in Myanmar at a time of great political change. After 50 years of brutal military rule, Myanmar recently held its first open elections, heralding a new era of democracy. Dara and Ed visit Aung San Suu Kyi's house and see first-hand how young people are finally able to freely express their support for her with tattoos. Then, before leaving Yangon, they take part in the Buddhist Festival of Light at the Shwedagon Pagoda.
