Ashley hopes that southern Thailand will be the perfect place to start over and move forward in her search for a happy ending as she begins her round-the-world journey with the 12 remaining men. After arriving in southern Thailand, Constantine discovers he is the first to get an individual date and the two head into town to shop, sightsee and even get some love advice from the locals. The next day, in an effort to see another side of her bachelors, Ashley takes 10 of the men on a group date. She meets them at Baan San Fan orphanage, which houses some of the children who lost their parents in the horrific 2004 tsunami. The men quickly take up renovating, painting and decorating the place these youngsters now call home. Then, the Bachelorette takes to the sea with Ames, as she explores what a possible relationship would be like with him. At the rose ceremony, one man gets sent packing while the remaining 11 men join Ashley as they look forward to more adventures on their trip to Chiang Mai, Thailand.
