My wife and I are the perfect kind of travelers. We are big time foodies who love to explore, indulge in new cultures, and at the same time, have maximum fun. Our anniversary celebration trip to Thailand was a testimony to this spirit and I am glad to say, we loved every moment of it.
Thailand was chosen for its picturesque locations, breathtaking nature, and touristy feel. The pictures of its islands that we saw on the internet mesmerized us and by the time, we had finished looking at all of them, we had already made up our mind.
TravelTriangle.com was referred by a friend and thankfully with them, we did not have to make much effort regarding our package and itinerary since they offered to personalize. After filling in some basic info and We received many quotes and itineraries from their agents on board and ultimately finalized one from “Travel Troops Global Pvt Ltd”.

Day 1: Hello Phuket
We boarded our flight from Bangalore (Air Asia), reached Don Muang, Bangkok (connecting flight), from where we finally arrived in Phuket. Upon our arrival in Phuket, we were transferred to Patong beach and area where our hotel was booked.
Here, after check in, we rested for a while before going out for some sightseeing and food tasting on our own. We explored the streets on our own and indulged in some really delicious seafood and desserts which included local delicacies, banana pancakes, sticky rice with mango pudding, and a whole lot of fish.
Needless to say, we were in heaven!
Day 2: Phi Phi Island tour by big boat

We were to do the Phi Phi island tour (as part of our itinerary) today, and in the morning after breakfast, we were picked up for the same.
This was an amazing tour where out of the seven extremely beautiful islands in the tour, we visited four. The waters were crystal clear, the views, fantastic, and the whole experience, superb! During the tour, we also stopped at a place where we could snorkel and swim, which was once again fantastic.
Later, we returned to the land and visited Patong beach and a very famous market called the Bangla road which had a lot of interesting places and things to buy.
Day 3: Off to Krabi
Today in the morning after breakfast, we checked out of our hotel and proceeded for Krabi. Since my wife and I wanted a road journey to the destination, we had chosen a cab as our mode of transport.
Upon our arrival, we were once again greeted with mesmerizing beauty and views straight out of paradise. After our check in at the hotel, we once again, relaxed for a while and then ventured out on our own to explore and of course, eat!
Just like Phuket, we went to the main street in Krabi and indulged in local food. The localities that we saw there were also nice and later on, we even visited a mall. As expected, there were a lot of places to chill here and we did have a great time shopping and eating.
One thing that I would like to mention is that during all of our local sightseeing, our main mode of transport was the tuk-tuk ride (a modified autorickshaw) and we had a good time traveling in it.
Day 4: Four Island tour in Krabi
One difference between the island tour in Phuket with this one was that here we stopped at the islands for half hour, explored its beaches, and hence, could enjoy much more. Among the four island that we visited, one of the best ones was the Chicken Island whose shape resembled the head of a chicken and was extremely beautiful.
Another one from the same tour was the Ko Poda Island where we could clearly see 4 different shades of water. To be honest, it was truly surreal!
Later, back at the hotel, after resting for a while, we once again ventured out to explore the streets of Krabi and this time even tried the famous coconut ice cream (it was delicious!).
Day 5: Bangkok, finally!
In the morning after breakfast, we checked out of our hotel and proceeded for our short flight to Bangkok. Upon our arrival, we were transferred to our hotel which luckily lay almost in the center of the city.
As usual, after our check in, we relaxed for awhile and then set out to explore. This time, we visited the famous Pratunam Market which is famous for selling first copy goods of various luxury brands.
There were categories for the level of copy one wanted here and seeing such a flourishing market, we were truly amazed.
Day 6: Bangkok Safari World fun
We went to the famous Safari World in Bangkok today and it was too much fun. The whole amusement park was divided into two parts, the Marine Park and Safari Park and had a lot of attractions and animal shows.
In the night post our visit, my wife and I visited a famous night market called Chatuchak night market which basically has everything under one roof. My wife was very happy to be here and shopped like crazy.
After this, we returned to our hotel, checked out, and were transferred to the airport for our flight back to Bangalore.
Our anniversary trip to Thailand was amazing. It had romance, adventure, shopping, and a much-needed dose of privacy and quality time that we so wanted. Away from all the distractions, Thailand was a paradise for us and would always remain in our hearts.
- Phi Phi island tour (extremely picturesque!)
- The people in Bangkok can be very rude and the city, in general, is quite dirty.
Lohith and his wife had an amazing time exploring the marvels of Thailand. Their trip experience was a hassle-free affair and you too can enjoy such a beautiful journey. Simply select an ideal Thailand Package and leave the rest to us.
