Y'alls, Taking a vaca to SE Asia (I can be convinced to try something else in the vicinity as well). The parameters I am working under: - cheap - more "new experience"-oriented than "wine, dine, and club"-oriented - interesting cities are good but am particularly interested in beautiful scenery/nature So: any advice you guys can give regarding some can't-miss spots in the area would be great. You know, stuff that you wouldn't miss for the world and are glad you experienced. If you have any advice on cheap international travel (buses/trains) for these countries, that is also a help. I just don't want to burn a lot of money on this trip. Any tips on good, clean, safe hostels or other places to stay are also appreciated. Thanks in advance. I'll be away from SF for a while but hopefully will have a lot of interesting stories to share when I'm back. I won't forget you guys! And it's a welcome respite for all of you from my incessant dumbness.
