Glimpse a rich and vibrant culture, so different from our own. See sophisticated, steamy, teeming, hardworking Mumbai and Chennai. Experience age-old arts, practiced today with sensitive precision. Appreciate detailed, artful relics of colorful ancient temples, and experience today’s exuberant festivals featuring embellished elephants. Roam the lush, cool, green tea and spice plantations of the Cardamom Hills, and glide through Kerala’s popular backwaters before resting on an Andman Island beach, one of Asia’s best. Presented by Barbara Sugden and Ron Vargason.
