The third and final installment of An Idiot Abroad has followed Karl and Warwick on a 5,000 miles trek from Venice, Italy through Eastern Europe, India and now China. Along the way, they experienced several different cultures and traditions.

About AN IDIOT ABROAD:
After sending Karl to see the Seven Wonders, and then on a journey of a Lifetime to experience the ultimate 'Things To Do Before You Die', Ricky Gervais has now persuaded Karl to embark on an Epic journey following the footsteps of famous explorer Marco Polo from Italy to China.
But this time, to help Karl with the loneliness of being away from home, Ricky's arranged for his mate, Warwick Davis, to keep him company.
Ricky Gervais said: "Karl once said to me that opposites attract. Warwick Davis is sociable, hardworking and never complains. They should get along fine."
Karl Pilkington added: "I don't know how it will work out. Honestly. Edmund Hillary had that Tenzing fella, Ben Fogle had James Cracknell. I've been given an Ewok."
Warwick Davis said: "I'll be following in the footsteps of Marco Polo who, on his deathbed, said: 'I did not write half of what I saw, for I knew I would not be believed.' That's pretty much what I thought after I first met Karl."
Over the course of a 5000 mile journey from Venice to Eastern Europe, India and China, An Idiot Abroad 3 will follow Karl and Warwick as they get stuck into different cultures and traditions, illuminated by Karl's trademark observations about the world and Warwick's varying experiences as a little person in different countries.
