As many of you saw from my Tweets, I survived the world’s longest commercial flight, SQ21 from Newark-Singapore, and have been enjoying my time in Singapore so far.

My Asian adventure doesn’t end here, though. Next stop: Bangkok for the weekend. I’ve never been and while  I’ve gotten a lot of feedback from friends and fellow travelers, I love when TPG readers offer advice so that others can take advantage of the great recommendations as well. I know that tons of TPG readers will have advice to share on what to see and do and where to eat (tell me where to find the best food!), so I’m asking you to leave your comments with travel tips and advice below. If any TPG readers are around, I’d love to meet you while I’m in the city, so speak up!

You can follow my meanderings on Twitter and Facebook, and of course, in my posts here on TPG. For those of you who live in other parts of Asia, I’ll be asking you for your advice on my next destinations on this trip including Cambodia and Hong Kong so stay tuned. As always – I appreciate your advice!
