Over the years, Phyu Phyu Kyaw Thein has perhaps become best-­‐known for her electric performances across Myanmar, prompting critics to hail her as the Lady Gaga of Myanmar. Phyu Phyu regularly performs in the west, and Southeast-­‐ and East-­‐Asia, noteworthy at the the 40th anniversary of ASEAN at the Hard Rock Café in Singapore.

Beautiful pic from Thailand!
 
'The Entrance'

Tham Lod Cave - Mae Hong Son Region - Northern Thailand, Southeast Asia.

Local Thai guides taking some tourists on a bamboo raft ride through Tham Lod Cave in Northern Thailand. The Lod is a natural limestone cave system, its main feature is the freshwater stream which runs through the middle of the cave for about 200-300 meters. As you can see in this photo the local Thai people work as guides which take people on a ride on a bamboo raft. It isn't recommended that you go exploring the cave without a guide. I tried walking upstream from the exit of the cave, but couldn't get far with the water level rising just above my waist. If you don't want to ride the bamboo raft you can take a short walk through the forest to the exit of the cave, passing a few smaller hidden caves along the way. It's an incredible place, so much to see and do. I look forward to returning in the near future to see John Spies (Australian photographer, caver and owner of Cave Lodge). If you are ever in Northern Thailand, I highly recommend to stay with John and crew at the lodge.
