A Spectacular Journey Through the Orient

Welcome to the Great Far East!

In 1271, Marco Polo left his native Venice and journeyed to the Great Far East. His travels took him over mountains, across deserts and on to the Court of Kubla Khan. He sent back word of silks and spices, he opened the overland silk trade routes and for the first time exposed to the west the other half of the world.

Doug Jones, one of America's foremost travelogue producers, has made, many trips to the Orient. This film is an album of his experiences and observations of people throughout the Great Far East. From Japan to Hong Kong, from Singapore to Bangkok, from Malaysia to Sri Lanka, to the towering Taj Mahal, this video paints a portrait of people who truly live in a different world.

Step aboard the gleaming new Hong Kong subway and ride to a snake shop to purchase a reptilian dinner! Turn your eyes from the glare of Tokyo's Ginza district by night to the peaceful Kamakura Buddha by day. Visit Kyongju in Korea, Try your luck at Pachinko in Japan, Visit Tiger Balm Gardens in Singapore, the Royal Palace in Bangkok, the Batu Caves of Kuala Lumpur, Madras, Agra and the incomparable Taj Mahal. Journey through the canals of Thailand, see the Temple of the Tooth at Kandy, watch elephants at work in Sri Lanka, see snake charmers, Thai boxing, silk spinning, a Japanese tea ceremony, the volcano of Sakurajima, suit tailoring in Hong Kong, the Star Ferry, the New Territories, and much, much more!

Doug Jones opens a window of insight onto this incredibly diverse and intriguing world, richly endowed with tradition and offering travelers extraordinary experiences in these colorful Portraits of the Great Far East.

"Doug Jones' films show the hand of a master photographer." - the Winnipeg Free Press

"This young filmmaker proved to be a lively, engaging, and expert storyteller." - Colorado Springs Gazette - Telegraph
