Destinations / Asia

Sai Sa Ard is the place for breakfast. You may order a fruit bowl, roti canal ($12), a common breakfast street food, or an omelet and rice with sweet chili sauce. If you cannot handle rice in the morning, ask for an alternative or order something else from the menu.


Head to the Giant Swing, a site for religious ceremonies where men would try to grab a bag of coin suspended from the swing with their teeth. It’s 21 feet tall and a popular tourist location.


Next stop is the Temple of the Emerald Buddha statue and museum ($5). It is a statue of the meditating Buddha in a yoga position, believed to be the oldest sculpture of the Buddha. The statue is made of semi-precious green stone covered in gold.


THE SIXTH 6th is where you will order pad Thai for lunch. They also make soups, and the chicken cashew nut with jasmine rice is also a great option ($16).


The Grand Palace ($16) is a popular tourist attraction in the city and your next stop. It is an architectural wonder that has great historical significance. It was built in 1782 and is the residence of the Thai monarchy. There is a dress code so be weary of what you wear. The arms, legs and feet should be covered, and half pants and shorts are not allowed.


Khosan Road is your final destination. Enjoy Thai street food for dinner. Here you’ll get to enjoy the Bangkok nightlife with locals and tourists alike ($16).

Avoid the Crowds with a Second-City Honeymoon

Second-city travel is one of the hottest trends of 2020. It involves avoiding the over-crowded, over-touristed cities that are historically top travel destinations and visiting nearby, lesser-known destinations instead. Travelers are learning that, while well-known destinations are popular for a reason, less-popular cities also have plenty to offer with fewer crowds and cheaper costs.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Tips for Atheist Travelers

The percentage of people who identify as non-religious has been on a steady rise. But the vast majority of the world is still wary of atheism, and it’s even punishable by death in a few countries. It’s important to keep the local culture in mind when traveling.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
