Two French adventurers have arrived in China for the latest stage of their global walking tour.

IT engineer Killian, 27, and 33-year-old Thierry, who is a lighting designer, quit their jobs in Paris on May 7, 2008, to fulfill a lifelong dream of traveling the world by foot.

So far, they have passed through 13 countries.

They arrived in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region on Oct 9 and will spend the next year crossing China before heading to Vietnam, Myanmar and Australia.
