Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK
Lonely Planet's top 10 regions 2012, 1: Coastal Wales
What a wonderful thing: to walk the entire length of a country's coastline, to trace its every nook, cranny, cliff-face, indent and estuary. How better to truly appreciate the shape - and soul - of a nation? Well, in 2012 Wales will become the only country in the world where you can do just that.
Due for completion in May, the All Wales Coast Path (AWCP ) will squiggle continuously from Chepstow in the south to near Queensferry in the north - via dramatic serrations, sandy bays and domineering castles - making 1377km of shore accessible. Much of it is already in place, including the spectacular Pembrokeshire coast (a national trail since 1970); a new section from Llanmadoc to Port Eynon, passing Rhossili (one of the UK 's best beaches); and the Isle of Anglesey Coast Path, waving to royals in-residence Wills and Kate on the way.
Watch: kayaker encounters blue whale
Was this really an alien sighting in the Amazon?
In location one, must the “stunning scenery” include a gentleman casually displaying his arse?
Must visit holiday spots for 2012..................................... I could think of hundreds of places far better than your 8!!!!!!
No doubt about it, the 2 day trek from Kalaw to Inle Lake was definitely a highlight of my stay in Myanmar. I recommend it highly and, if he is available, try and get Harri SIngh as your guide. He can be found through the Golden Lily Guesthouse there. However, there are many good "local" guides in Kalaw that can lead you and introduce you to all the diversity that trail has to offer. But, one thing you need to be aware of and that is to stay far away from the Ever Smile Trekking Believe it or not, I think that they are the worst human beings that I have ever come across in my entire life. They are not locals and direct 100% of their energies toward slandering the humble local family guides. They combat their own deficiencies by creating horrible lies about others in the business and as a result are despised by the community. This resentment can be felt all along the trail as villages, farmers, and other guides turn a cold shoulder as Ever Smile groups walk by. Adversely, if you are with a local family guide, that wonderful countryside and its effervescent people welcome you as only Myanmar can.
So, put Kalaw on your itinerary, and enjoy your trip, and if there is anything that I might be able to help you with as you prepare to go please do not hesitate to ask. I love traveling in Myanmar more than anything else in life.So you should never book the trekking with the Ever Smile Trekking agency.
Please one information in kalaw is the if you plan to go for the trekking never book the trekking with the ever smile trekking agency in kalaw and one of the cook of the Ever Smile and he stole my camera and seriously bad situation at there Ever Smile.

More BEE dancer Sara Mapelli gyrates gracefully while covered in THOUSANDS of honey-bees. The artist began dancing with bees in 2001 as an art performance sporting a "bee-blouse" made of 12,000 bees. The 44-year-old has been stung multiple times while dancing, but thinks of it as a type of healing. Using a special pheromone oil that is equivalent to the scent of 100 queen bees, Sara lures the insects onto her bare skin for about two hours at a time.
