Great show for those who want to see the world.
29 May 2006 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

The series is actually been known as Globe Trekker here in my country on cable. But either way, it's still the same.

Imagine you have always wanted to go those places in the world but yet have no idea how to start, this is the show for you. Showing about the best each episode is offered, the presenter gets to mingle with the locals, visit some of the sites famous for that place, and also get to try the local food. Sometimes the local food may not to be one's liking but then hey, at least someone live to tell the tale.

Sometimes the news on TV had already made us have certain perceptions of that certain place but then this TV series will prove to you that people everywhere are actually friendly if you are to them as well.

The world is not always what we like to think from the news and this series can really prove that. If you are the sort who likes to travel, it's a perfect TV series for you.
