Asia Alive is a journey to heritage sites layered by history and life – places rich in tradition garnished by natural and architectural beauty.
From the food havens of Malaysia’s melting pots (Penang and Malacca); to heavens on earth in Indonesia (Borobudur and Prambanan); and further afield to tropical paradises in the Philippines, the viewer will get up close and personal with the sights, sounds and soul of these sites.
More than just a travelogue, Asia Alive also steps into the lives of those who are champions and custodians of ancient traditions. Besides taking in the unique charm, color and character on offer, the series explores the pressing and poignant issue of how, in the currents of change and modernity, if it is possible still to keep the heritage of Asia alive.
