First aired: Thursday, 19 May 2016 at 17.32 hours

In the third episode Marica's journey through China comes to an end.

After a period of three months in China she arrives at the border of the country Laos. Loas is very primitive, but also very touristic. In Thailand she travels with her friend Bas for 11 weeks. His first day isn't very promising; a tropical storm is passing over. The adventure in Myanmar (Birma) is already getting to an end after two days, because there's an area that they can't cross. It's prohibited. Why? Even the locals don't know. The island Ko Phi Phi leaves a powerful impression, it's the island which got hit by a tsunami back in 2004. Arriving in Malaysia, Marica says goodbye to her friend Bas and continues to travel alone. In Malaysia there are no lanes to cycle on, thus she has to cycle on the road. Eventually Marica reaches modern Singapore.
