Set off at dawn and watch the annular eclipse as the sun and the moon align to create a blazing ring of fire in the Arabian sky.

Hiking off of the beaten track through lush rainforest, you'll follow the sound of fizzing water as you pass over small streams, and look out for white-faced monkey in the canopy. Then, as you come into a clearing, you catch sight of the lofty Burrito waterfall; a high torrent of bubbling white water cascading down a sheer rock face into a vast plunge pool below.

Ubiquitous in Burma, a cheroot is a type of small cigar, packed with flavoured tobacco and rolled inside a leaf. Entering a small floating house on Inle Lake, the smell of sweet, sticky tobacco hangs thick in the air. Greeted by one of the village elders, we are shown how cheroots are still rolled by hand here, at a rate of up to 1,000 per day one of the locals proudly claim!
