I spent a wonderful few days in the hill station town of Kalaw, cool and green at 1400 meters, in the mountainous Shan State of NE Myanmar.  Then I hiked for three days form Kalaw to Inle Lake, accompanied by four other male tourists, and our guide, a young local woman.  The trek was beautiful, and strenuous.  We saw amazing views, passed through villages with a variety of ethnic groups, and in the evening at yummy food and stayed in the homes of villagers.

Photos: Tonsai and Railay Beaches, Krabi, Thailand

Famous with rock climbers, the limestone cliffs around Tonsai and Railay Beaches are stunning, and the nearby Phra Nang Beach is gorgeous.  I enjoyed a short walk up and over the ridge, through the jungle, to go between Tonsai and Railay.  Tonsai is cheaper and more of a backpacker scene, while Railay is more of resort tourism.  Both have beginner to advanced climbing, with equipment and training provided.  I stayed at Andaman Resort (just a simple wooden bungalow with bathroom) for 400 baht a night, on Tonsai Beach.
