Destination Diary- Philadelphia

Posted By Trav


Today we bring you a very special destination diary, one close to our hearts.

Our hometown.


From the best places to eat and drink around town (including the dive bars) to the most interesting museums for children and adults, it’s all here.

Everything we mention could be done in a couple of day itinerary in Philly (except for maybe all the food. That’s a lot of pizza!) and is great for single travelers, couples, or those traveling with children.

What’s your favorite place to go in Philly? Did we miss something important that we need to do when we get back from SE Asia? Let us know below!

    Hi! I have been binge listening to your podcast and have loved your pods from Thailand since I lived in Chiang Mai a few years! I am always looking for Thai restaurants locally. What is your favorite food reccomendation at the Thai Elephant restaurant?

    1. Trav says:

      @Lorida- Yeah, Thai Elephant is in Phoenixville (my hometown) and it’s the best one I’ve been to in the area. There is another one owned by the Thai Elephant owner’s best friend in Conshohocken called Chiang Mai that I hear is also good.

      As far as in the city, I’m not quite sure because I never go to Thai downtown. But if you come out to Phoenixville to get Thai Elephant, let me know – I’d love to meet up!

      Glad you’re binge listening…it’s the best way to listen to podcasts!
