This is a travel slideshow series showcasing some of the best travel photos from Asian countries around The Far East Asia and SE Asia (including a focus on culture, food, religions, art, customs, architecture, attractions, people, smiles etc) showcasing countries such as South Korea, India, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Taiwan, Brunei, Vietnam, Singapore and other destinations. This is a 600 part series that attempts to give one a visual representation of what it is like to be travelling in Asia as a backpacker, tourist or expat. Take a deep breath and let your senses explode. From ancient farming villages in India to the futuristic cityscape of Tokyo, Asia provides such variety and contrast it would take many lifetimes to even start scratch the surface. Above all, is a spiritual place - infused with the gods of past and present: the ancient spirits of the land and the family, the teachings of Buddhism, the deities of Christianity and Hinduism and the rules of Islam. Across the region, scented smoke swirls from millions of joss sticks placed in offering at the many shrines and temples the faithful use to meditate and pray. Ancient wonders and sacred spaces abound: from the Great Wall of China and the temples of Angkor to lesser-known marvels in Myanmar, Nepal and Afghanistan. But, Asia is far more than its past. A frenetic buzz surrounds the cities: the fashion, culture and business in Hong Kong, Singapore and many others easily challenges the ...

Rampage of Lalgola (Indo-Bangla Border) Passengers at SDAH-NH Main Line section [04:27]
Date taken: April 19, 2012 Camera used: SONY Camcorder DCR SX45E With temperature soaring to almost 42 degree, only an idiot like me will prefer to sit under the scorching sun for hours to do railfanning instead of sitting in the cosy sofas under the chilling ACs in our college's food court and having gala time with friends. Lalgola, a small town at 225 kms north of Kolkata is situated on the India-Bangladesh border. Though Lalgola does not have any railway connectivity with Bangladesh, but it is a terminal station which hauls more than a dozen of trains everyday. Only Gede and Bongaon (these two locations are also at border) have railway connectivity with Bangladesh, and the Kolkata Chitpur Terminal (KOAA)- Dhaka MAITREE International Express uses the Gede route to cross the border. Due to extreme rush, almost a dozen of passengers, and a couple of Express trains travel between Lalgola (LGL)- Murshidabad (MBB)- Berhampore Court (BPC) and Kolkata everyday. Earlier the route was complete ruled by alcos, but after electrification was done in 2004 (now doublification is going on), half of the trains were given electric locos on a permanent basis, but the remaining half are still hauled by alcos.. While the electric ones are hauled by ASN WAG-5 , the alcos are hauled by WDM-2/ 3A of HWH/ BWN. And the MEMU was recently introduced a couple of months ago. The main line of the Eastern Bengal Railway from Sealdah to Ranaghat, was opened in 1862 and extended to Kushtia, now in ...

Panam, the forgotten City [05:05]
Sonargaon was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Bengal, ruled by Isa Khan. Bengal is now divided into Paschimbanga, which is a state in India, and the nation of Bangladesh. Sonargaon was known as 'The City of Panam' and was a focal part of the renowned Deva Dynasty until the 13th century. Mainly middle or upper class people inhabited Sonargaon during that time. After the 13th century Sonargaon was made a secondary capital to the main capital of the Sultanate of Bengal. This lasted until the arrival of the Mughals. I earnestly request the authorities-that-be to protect what remains of early 20th century urban Bengal architecture on this site, actively, and prevent further vandalism.

Bangladesh Dhaka city [13:48]
Dhaka City Dhaka (ঢাকা, formerly spelled Dacca, named Jahangir-nagar during Mughal era) is the capital of Bangladesh. It is a mega city and one of the major cities of South Asia. Located on the banks of the Buriganga River, had a population of over 16 million in 2011. It is the 9th largest city in the world and also 28th among the most densely populated cities in the world. Dhaka is known as the City of Mosques and with 400000 cycle rickshaws running on its streets every day, the city is also described as the Rickshaw Capital of the World. Under Mughal rule in the 17th century, the city was known as Jahangir Nagar. The modern city, however, was developed chiefly under British rule in the 19th century, and became the second-largest city in Bengal. After the Partition of Bengal in 1905, Dhaka became the capital of the new province of Eastern Bengal and Assam but lost its status as a provincial capital again after the partition was annulled in 1911. After the partition of India in 1947, Dhaka became the administrative capital of East Pakistan, and later, in 1971, the capital of an independent Bangladesh. Modern Dhaka is the center of political, cultural and economic life in Bangladesh. Dhaka suffers from urban problems such as pollution and overpopulation. The city is attracting large foreign investments and greater volumes of commerce and trade. It is also experiencing an increasing influx of people from across the nation, this has reportedly made Dhaka the fastest ...

How to drive a bus on the busiest highway of Bangladesh (N1) [02:08]
We were taking the bus back to Dhaka from Bandarban. I think it was on 10 Sep 2011. I was wondering if there were any changes to how people drive on highways in Bangladesh, after so much was going on about road safety. I got my answer. These drivers are simply crazy. There were enough traffic signs on the road, but I have a suspicion that these bus drivers think those are there for decorative purpose only. Well, if driving license to be given out as long as someone can differentiate the types of cattle on the road, understanding road rules is to ask too much of them anyway. If you are driving in Bangladesh, please keep your cool, drive safe, and keep praying that you don't meet one these on the road ;)
