I am going to vote for the Krabi beaches. Cheap accommodation available in Krabi town, day trip Railay, Phra Nang, Tub Kaak beaches. All are an easy boat ride away.

Thailand is very impressive - I've never seen so much gold leaf in my life. The rice terraces in the NW Highlands of Vietnam are breathtaking too.

I believe that Cambodia or Laos holds the title of cheapest, but rural Vietnam comes very close.

Halong Bay is beautiful and also most of the drive between Luang Prabang and Vang Vieng in Laos.

I would say Thailand is the cheapest and most beautiful place in Asia.

In my opinion Indonesia- so many islands so many different cultures, beautiful people, wonderful scenery.
Definitely the big secret of South East Asia and so many do not go there- such a shame.

A fantastic report from young traveller in Indonesia in April/May 2009

Checkout this latest video of Tangkahan- a jungle paradise in North Sumatra.

and a magazine article from 2008 on Tangkahan

Mentawai Islands off West Sumatra

Bukittinggi and Lake Maninjau West Sumatra Blog from traveller whose social visa I organised.

Cianjur in West Java

Informative Blog on Eastern Indonesia- Maluku and so on from a long term poster on LP Thorn Tree.

You or any traveller can send me PM if you would like maps and more information on Indonesia.

The Victoria Harbour ferry, in Hong Kong, at night. Crossing from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island, right under the skyscrapers, for only 4 HK dollars (about 60 cents). In one of the world's most expensive cities, is one of the most beautiful, and inexpensive, sights in Asia.
