The three presenters are challenged with building a bridge over the River Kwai. The journey starts off with a drive through Burma towards Thailand, where they head off on the wrong road and end up having to go through a mountain pass. Jeremy constantly moans about his Isuzu and saying how rubbish the gear box and the comfort level is. Hammond and James also have problems with their vehicles. In a near by town Jeremy puts bricks into his truck to make it heavier thus improving the ride. James gets stuck in a creek where a local man helps him get out. Jeremy’s weight addition ends up slowing his truck eventually causing it to not move at all, he then dumps all the bricks onto the road leaving May and Hammond behind. The three then make modifications to their cars; Jeremy adds blue and white Shelby paint, Mercedes AMG badges on the side, a sleeping compartment, and removes the roof in the cab to make it a convertible “sports lorry”. Hammond adds a viewing platform, two tall truck exhausts, a hammock, cooking facilities and a shower. May adds a brake cooling system, lucky animal figures, and a tent which he hangs on his truck’s crane. The three presenters have a drag race in the vast, empty streets of Naypyidaw, the capital of Burma, after which they proceed into the Shan State.

Thanks for the upload. I’m from the S.E.A. region and it’s exciting to see them visit the area. Maybe one day they’ll visit my country!
