Walk this way

I want to go for a really long walk. I don't want to camp. Where should I go? Trekking in Asia.

Sometime this spring I want to go on a multi-day, possibly even multi-week walk/hike/trek. I don't really like hiking with a big backpack, tent, food, etc. So, I'm looking for a trail or route to walk that will allow me to sleep in a bed of some sort, preferably cheaply. I'm currently in Beijing, but I'm willing to go anywhere in China or SE Asia. What the hell, I'll consider the whole world, if not for this year, then sometime in the future.
I've previously looked into the Santiago pilgrimage in Spain. That looks perfect, but I'm afraid it's too expensive this year, considering airfare and the exchange rate. I've also previously done Tiger Leaping Gorge here in China, which was fantastic, but too short (25km, 2 days). I'm not looking for anything particularly challenging, I just want to get away, and enjoy the feeling of getting from point A to B.
