About to book my last Asia trip with my daughter before she turns 2.

So far I have the following route EWR-LHR (UA F)-BKK (TG F)-XXX-XXX-XXX-BKK-CDG (TG F)-BRU-JFK (SN J).

I'm getting into BKK early Friday morning. Was thinking of either staying in BKK for shabbos and then going to SIN for a day or 2 and then to DPS for 5-6 days including shabbos OR going straight to SIN for shabbos and then just stay about 2 days in SIN and then go to DPS.

I'm pushing to staying in BKK for shabbos since it seems more kid shabbos friendly.

Any ideas or advice you would or wouldnt do?
It might be premature, but the Davis hotel in Bangkok was excellent for shabbos. The hotel knows all about it and it's close to Chabad Beis Elisheva (maybe a 10-15 minute walk) obviously without an eruv.

Would like to go for few days vacation in Jan and looking for ideas.

Looking for a all inclusive resort where i can relax and have some stuff to do. A Casino would be a great add on.

Willing to pay for something really nice and romantic

Willing to drive up to 6 hours from NY

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Not sure about the "best" but PR definitely has more than just beaches and snorkeling.

Week of Sunday March 15, going to be in ORD. Need to be in NYC or YYZ for Shabbos. Looking for something to do during the week with a 2 yo. As of now I'm open to almost anything. Don't care to travel. Preferably somewhere with food but not a must.
Any ideas?

I'm booking a RT on United and I have an open jaw  and I would like some ideas where I should book it and use it November-December next year. For about 1 week.
Preferably with kosher food in the area

(I did Orlando and FLL area LA and San Diego)
Thanks

there are a # of places with kosher food. do you mean kosher restaurants, supermarkets or Chabad selling foodstuffs?
