We were wanting to go to a place that offers beautiful landscape and is rich is culture. We did a lot of research and realized that Bhutan is the place where we want to go.

We told them everything and then started preparing our Bhutan cultural tour with family.

Weather in Bhutan in June was great. It was an amazing time to visit this amazing country. It wasn’t very hot and it wasn’t very cold. We did everything that we wanted to without getting affected by the weather. It truly was a surreal experience.

Our trip was from Howrah. To reach Bhutan from our hometown (Howrah) we boarded a train from Howrah station to Jaigaon, from Jaigaon our Bhutanese driver Keshan took us to Bhutan in his car. People coming from different parts of India can go to Bhutan either by airplane from Delhi or Kolkata. The other way is to enter the country from West Bengal in a bus.

During this Bhutan cultural tour we visited a lot of places during these 7 days. We went to some of the most popular tourist places.

1. Buddha Doredama Staute

arrived to Bhutan

eally excited to start exploring

enjoying the family time

clicked some pictures for memories

When we reached Thimpu we were really excited to start exploring this place already. There was way too much to see here. Post the hotel check-in we stepped out and started the exploration right away. The main highlight of this day was Buddha Diredama Statue. It was amazing to see this place in person what we had always seen in pictures. We explored places like Tango Cheri monastery, Buddha point, Folk Heritage Museum, Farmers Market and many more. We were really happy to see these famous places of Thimpu.

2. Dochula Pass

driving to the next destination

amazing time with family

explore the best places in Bhutan

at Punakha Dzong

in a traditional attire

Visiting Bhutan means trekking a lot. Many of the popular places are located at great distances where going by a vehicle is not possible. We visited a lot of places in these 7 days that required us to trek but the reward was amazing. We trekked to places like Dochula Pass which was the highlight of our second day. This place is a must visit as you can see the entire Himalayan range from here. Other than this we went to Chimi Ihakang, Punakha Dzong, Punakha Suspension bridge and more.

3. Paro

extreme weather

stopped at popular destination

sitting on the river side

had a great experience of rafting

awestruck by the beauty

Our 7 days trip also has Paro in the itinerary. Post the check in our cosy hotel we stepped out to see some of the popular tourist destinations. During our stay in Paro we checked places like Ta Dzong, Rinpung Dzong, Nemi Zam. These places were absolutely magical. We were awestruck by the beauty of them.

4. Tiger’s Nest

main highlights is Tigers Nest

absolutely spectacular experience of hiking

Visiting Tigers Nest once one of the main highlights of this trip. All of us had been waiting to hike to this world famous place. We trekked for hours to finally reach this place which was completely worth it. No Bhutan trip is complete without visiting Tiger’s Nest. The view from here is absolutely spectacular.

Bhutan is not that expensive. Every possible expense was covered in our itinerary. Other than this we spent somewhere around INR 2500 to 3000 on our personal experiences.

The shopping experience in Bhutan was quite different as we came across many organic items which was the specialty of Bhutan. There were so many things that we wanted to purchase from here. We did many souvenirs too. But If anyone is going to Bhutan I will recommend them to get the organic soaps and bathing stuff.

Dining in bhutan was great. We really enjoyed the food there. But what caught our attention was the very famous butter tea which is widely popular here. We loved sipping on this amazing hot beverage. I recommend anybody who is going to Bhutan to try it.

  • If planning to go in the some time, do not pack many woolens but just a jacket or sweater as it doesn’t get that cold
  • Pack comfortable shoes was you would be walking a lot
  • Pack a warmer just in case of emergency
  • Pack your sunscreen
  • Keep all your first aid with you just in case of emergency
  • The traffic rules in Bhutan are way more strict when compared to India, one must not violate any traffic rules or like not taking zebra crossing to cross the road. Respect their culture they are proud of it, never disrespect their attire.
  • Do not miss river rafting experience
  • There are a lot of things to see in Bhutan, do your research and plan your trip accordingly

Our overall experience with travel triangle and their agent was outstanding their planning was awesome. They took care of the entire holiday and gave us the best of memories for life. We loved how it fitted our budget without compromising on the experience. We are looking forward to consider them for our future trips as well.

Bhutan is a great place and we feel blessed to have visited this place. Our Bhutan Cultural Tour With Family was magical and is filled with moments that are going to stay with us forever. TravelTriangle team really made sure that we see the best of Bhutan and made an itinerary that had all the iconic places and was still under our budget.

Richa’s Honeymoon Trip To Thailand Will Make You Fall In Love With This Paradise

Serene beaches with golden white sand providing a perfect cushion to your feet, Thailand has a perfect combination of beaches and islands that people fall in love with. Romantic boat cruises, with an exciting shopping experience makes for a rejuvenating holiday like no other. Like many others, this couple also preferred a honeymoon trip to Thailand and to add an extra touch of romance to their trip, here’s how TravelTriangle ensured a smooth journey with all the fun packed couple experiences on board.

Whether it’s about a weekend getaway or simply to soothe your senses, travel always helps. I love the beach atmosphere but since we were confused whether to choose Bali or Thailand for our honeymoon, it took some time. Since around that time, Bali has a monsoon season, it made our choice easier and we opted for Thailand. The locals living in Thailand are well versed with the Indian culture and that made things better for us. The warm hospitable environment was just about perfect for our upcoming adventures in Thailand.

The best of all were the beaches of Krabi. If you’re a fan of turquoise waters splashing across the shore and your feet stepping into the powder-white sand, then Thailand should be your preference too.

Trip Type: Honeymoon
Cost: INR 1,07,000
Travel Agent:
Duration: 6 Nights 7 Days
Inclusions: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Flights, Cab, Airport transfers, Island tours, Dinner cruise, Safari World and Marine Park tour

Experience thrilling adventure sports, enjoy Thai cuisines, or pamper yourself with a relaxing spa. Book Thailand holiday packages on TravelTriangle and enjoy the beauty of the beaches of Krabi, Phuket, and Ko Samui.

A Fun Shopping Spree

Thailand markets

amazing lights around the market

There’s a lot of scope for bargaining in Thailand markets. What we liked best about these markets was the wide range of products that one can buy. From makeup, accessories, bags to footwear, souvenirs and home decor, there was everything that one can hope for. We went to Indira market in Bangkok and it was fun as I took a stroll around the market with my partner, buying stuff. One of the most fun things to do in Thailand is to have street food while shopping and there are plenty of options for vegetarians too. We ordered some Veg noodles that tasted really good.

Variety Of Indian Dining Options

had a memorable night

spent some time in the hotel

clicked some best shots

had a fun time

Since most of our meals like breakfast and lunches were already included on our trip, there were only a couple of times that we ventured onto some street food. The best part about dining in Thailand are the Indian restaurants. You’ll find one in every corner and they serve the authentic Indian flavours that really satiate your hunger pangs. Most of the Indian restaurants in Thailand have a variety of options to choose from and are decently priced too.

Real travel stories. Real stays. Handy tips to help you make the right choice.

Safari World Tour

a beautiful time with small lion

witnessed many highlights

together at safari

Visiting the Safari World is one of the best things to do in Bangkok that made us feel like we were kids again. There were plenty of highlights to explore here, such as the monkey show, dolphin show, sea lion show and the lion show. My husband won 2 stuff toys and a mug for me too! It sure felt like an adventure that we, as kids used to experience!

Beachy Vibes

enjoyed our time on Krabi beaches

having the good time

beach walk with my partner

crystal clear deep sea water

had a great time

on the sandy beach

beach walk with partner

surreal beauty

great day to spend time on beach

on the beautiful island

Given that Krabi has less crowd as compared to Phuket, we enjoyed our time on Krabi beaches more than the ones in Phuket. Nonetheless, all of these were clean and it felt surreal to go for a beach walk with my partner. A personal recommendation to all travelers from my end is to relax and sit on the beaches here at night, just to breathe in the fresh air and watch how the soothing waves splash across the shore every once in a while. This place was surely one of the most exotic places to visit in Thailand that you ought to try on your honeymoon!

Day 1: Arrival in Phuket
Day 2: Phi Phi Island Tour, Sightseeing
Day 3: Transfer to Krabi, Day at Leisure
Day 4: 4 Island Tour with Lunch on Speedboat
Day 5 Safari World and Marine Park with Lunch
Day 7: Departure

  • The only thing I regret the most is to not know how to swim. With a place as beautiful as Thailand and turquoise coloured water as far as the eye can see, you just cannot resist diving in. By putting on a life vest, there’s only some distance that you can cover but it won’t be enough. So, my advice would be to learn how to swim before you head to this charming land.
  • Another important thing is to set your mind right as to what all you have to try here, like a list of things you wish to do and set a tentative Thailand budget, in order to make a proper plan.

There’ll be a lot of sun that you’ll have to encounter here. Since Indians are not a big fan of skin-tan, it is highly recommended that you take sunscreen along. Not only that, you must apply it thoroughly on all areas exposed to the Sun. Another important thing is to avoid carrying water bottles on boat tours, as the staff provides you with some for your journey. You must always keep in mind these important tips for Thailand trip in mind!

Our experience with TravelTriangle has been really good. Our travel agents Mr Ankit and Amit were always available to answer our questions. My primary concern was that the hotels should be nice as it was my honeymoon trip to Thailand. This was properly taken care of by the travel agents.

Reviving your senses amidst some of the best beaches is a must. So, when are you planning your visit? Pack your bags and plan a fun packed vacation to Thailand to have a serene escapade like never before!

Patong beach Thailand

It was 7 in the morning when both my husband and I had reached the Phuket Airport, and we were welcomed by our tour representative who was waiting for us with a private Cab. It was then our Thailand honeymoon kick-started and we couldn’t hold the excitement for long. Immediately after the airport, our driver drove us to the Patong beach, which was only an hour away from there.

Upon reaching our hotel – IBIS later, where our honeymoon stay was arranged, we freshened up, relaxed, and met our Phuket tour representative – Ms. Pum. She took us through our entire itinerary, and with a few suggestions from her, we made some changes and finalized our travel plan for every day. And since the first day was for leisure, both of us walked around the city, spent some time on the beautiful beach, relished the Thai flavours, and came back to the hotel.

Amenities: Sun terrace, pet friendly, in-house bar and restaurant, free wifi, accessible parking, swimming pool

Day 2: Taking a Phi Phi Island tour, savouring Thai cuisine & witnessing the Phuket nightlife

speed boat ride to Thailand

As part of the ‘things to do on a Thailand honeymoon’ list, we had our breakfast at the hotel and left for the great Phi Phi Island tour by 7:30 AM. Ms. Pum, our tour representative suggested us to take the speed boat for taking the Phi Phi Island tour rather than taking the ferry. We went ahead with her suggestion and had one hour of awesomeness on the speed boat on our way to the Phi Phi Islands.

Phi Phi Island Tour

On this day, we covered five islands of which first was the beautiful Maya Beach. The crystal clear blue water looks so captivating that you feel like diving into it. After spending some 40 minutes on the beach, we headed to the Monkey Island, where one can see swimming monkeys in the rocky island. Followed by this, we went to Phi Phi Le and Phi Phi Don Islands, and had a sumptuous Thai lunch together.

Snorkeling is one of the must things to do in Thailand on honeymoon, especially when you are surrounded with beautiful corals and fishes. What made our experience more memorable was swimming amongst the gorgeous marine life. We returned to our hotel by 7 in the evening and headed out again to explore the famous Bangla street known for its nightlife. It took us by surprise as we saw one whole street full of lights, street magicians, dancers, music, pubs, bars, strip clubs, and more. It is undoubtedly one great place for spending your weekend and partying like there’s no tomorrow. The same street also leads to the beach where you can have a couple of beers while relaxing on the sand and even take a dip in the waters. We were absolutely mesmerized with Thailand’s nightlife and didn’t want our honeymoon to end.

Day 3: Exploring the James Bond Island, canoeing & capturing memories

The third day of our honeymoon started with a Continental breakfast at the hotel after which we left for the James Bond Island tour planned for the day. A one hour drive through the beautiful roads of Phuket led us to the jetty from where we took the ‘Big Boat’ for our island tour. We also had a group of travelers from China along with us and it was great meeting all these people from a different culture. This island tour is another of those things to do in thailand on honeymoon that one should not miss.

kayaking

After a two hour’s ride we reached a rocky island where we got into Canoeing boats. Of all the things to do on a Thailand honeymoon, kayaking was one adventurous experience that we had. We rowed through the deep dark caves in the islands from the sea where we could see hundreds of bats hanging upside down. The glistening rocks shined like precious stones, and it looked like a true wonder of the earth. We then kayaked through two more such islands which had sky high cliffs, deep forest, and beautiful hidden beaches that made it look exactly like a Jurassic Park.

Post kayaking, we had lunch on the boat, and then reached the famous James Bond Island. We walked around the island, posing for photos near the famous James Bond Rock before heading back to Patong. At the night, we explored around and tasted the mouth-watering seafood of Phuket.

Day 4: Taking a Phuket city tour

It was the last day of our honeymoon in Phuket and we wanted to make the most of it. So, after checking out of the hotel by 10:00 AM, we were received by Ms. Nana, a lovely tour guide who took us for the Phuket city tour. First, we went to the famous Buddha temple where the holy remains of Lord Buddha left us mesmerized. And later, we headed to a beautiful three beaches viewpoint, a Honey bee factory, and a Pearl factory.

The most thrilling part of the day was our visit to the Tiger Kingdom, where we touched and posed with the mighty tigers. A visit to this place is definitely one of the top things to do on a Thailand honeymoon. On our way back to the airport, we visited an emporium to buy some souvenirs so that we could keep our Thailand honeymoon memories fresh even after coming back home.

  • Speed boating and big boat ride to the islands
  • Snorkeling
  • Visit to the Tiger Kingdom
  • There were exactly no such low points or negative experiences on our honeymoon. The only sad moment was the time when our driver had reached early to pick us up on one of the days, and we were not done with the breakfast yet, so we had to leave it and head for our tour.
  • Decide the budget of your holiday and let the trip agent know all the experiences you wish to have so that he can plan accordingly.
  • Check in advance for the extra money that you may spend during the trip apart from the package cost, so that you have enough foreign currency during the vacation.
  • Do check the reviews posted by the other travelers before finalizing the place, hotel, and more.
  • Pack your clothes according to the weather in Thailand.
  • Keep your itinerary handy so that you don’t miss out on anything.

Overall, our honeymoon in Thailand with TravelTriangle was adventure-packed and fun-filled. It was because of their constant support throughout the trip that we could put such a perfect start to our new lives, and have such a hassle-free experience. This was the second time I planned my trip with them, and I would definitely love to do it again!
