    Re: "s"

    Only sentence 3. is grammatical.

    1. I'm going to other place.
    2. I'm going to others place.
    3. I'm going to other places.
    4. I'm going to others places.

    You could rewrite sentence 1 as 'I'm going to another place'

    You need to use the definite article e.g.
    1. I'm going to the other place. (a place you or the speaker knows about)
    2. I'm going to other places. (travelling to different locations)
    You can also say "I'm going to another place" not specifying where you are going exactly.
    Hope this helps
