Saturday: Travel: Celebrity Passport - PAUL KENYON; TV PRESENTER AND INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALIST PAUL KENYON HAS SOME MEMORIES OF ASIA HE'D LIKE TO FORGET.

Favourite holiday destination?

It has to be Cambodia. I went twice for work making a Panorama documentary and liked it so much I went back again with my wife. We went to Phnom Penh and Angkor Wat. It was absolutely fantastic. My favourite place was the Foreign Correspondents' Club a beautiful old colonial bar that's really faded, but a great place to drink cocktails and watch the world go by on the river below.

We stayed at the Hotel Royal, which was in the film The Killing Fields. It's a little oasis of calm and opulence in the middle of a frantic, chaotic country.

Essential hols item? If I'm working, it's my secret camera. We often have to smuggle it into some countries, like Northern Cyprus, where we had to take it apart and then rebuild it when we got there. And I always take a CD Walkman hate talking to people on planes.

Best childhood hols? My parents believed in holidaying at home before you travelled abroad. So we went to places like the Isle of Wight and Newquay a lot. My favourite holiday was the year Seb Coe and Steve Ovett were in the Olympics and I raced from the beach to watch them on TV.

Any hols from hell? Earlier this year, was in India staying in a maharajah's palace in Rajahstan. It was incredibly beautiful, but after a few days

was so ill I had to stay in bed. I had a fever and was sweating so badly the maharajah's son had to get his own private doctor. And then I had to spend three days in hospital when came home they're still not sure what it was, possibly amoebic dysentery.

This year's holiday? We went to Venice recently for a wedding. It's utterly beautiful, but incredibly expensive. As you walk along the street you just leak money.
