If you’re from Michigan and you haven’t visited Plymouth for a night, I highly suggest the trip! It the perfect fix for a weekday date night with dinner and drinks. The main square is a beautiful park filled with trees, fountains, and often times artwork, displays, or events. Surrounding the square are dozens of fun restaurants and bars to check out, many are more relaxed and some if you’re ready to party! Great place for an evening autumn stroll

Bangkok is such a fun, clean, and gorgeous city! This was my first stop of my 17 nights in Thailand and it’s the perfect mix of everything you can ask for in a big city: great (and cheap!) food, beautiful architecture, fun parties, and a unique culture filled with kind people. Thailand is known as “the Land of Smiles”, and the people there live up to their name 100%. Everybody is very kind and not pushy or demanding compared to many other tourist destinations. I would go back to Bangkok in a heartbeat!
Places to Daydream:
Where to stay: Rambuttri Inn & Plaza near Khao San Road — Khao San (featured above) is the main tourist hub where you will find bright lights, shopping, tons of cheap food and parties! This hotel was perfect–blocks from the main road but just far enough away from the noise. Not to mention, a rooftop pool and gorgeous open air lobby– all for about $25 a night!
Best Club: Onyx
Best Bars: Khao San Road, Sky Bar
What not to miss:
The Grand Palace: gorgeous architecture, the top tourist attraction in Bangkok. Check out the pictures featured above!
Muy Thai Boxing match: how Americans love our NFL.. this is Muy Thai to the Thai people. Can be brutal at times, but very interesting to see the passion (and screaming!) coming from the Thai fans.
Wat Pho (he Reclining Buddha): What’s not to like about a 160 ft reclining Buddha?
Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn): Amazing views of the skyline. Requires a ferry across the river to reach, but you can see everything from the top. Careful not to slip walking up all the very steep stairs!
Stay tuned for the rest of the trip!
