Udit Bhargava was sure of two things. Firstly he wanted to have the best honeymoon experience with his wife. Secondly, the experience was to be taken care by someone they can trust. Hence, the research began for the most enticing international honeymoon packages..
Trip Type: Amazing International Honeymoon Trip
Duration: 11 Days and 10 Nights
Budget: INR 1,23,000
Inclusions: Accommodation at Ibis Kuta Bali, Hotel Uppala Villa Seminyak & Aqueen Lavender, Singapore; Transfers, Breakfast, Banana Boat Ride, Parasailing, Other Water Adventures, Volcano Tour and much more.
I shortlisted Singapore and Bali as my friends highly recommended these places as the perfect honeymoon destinations. We continued our search for the perfect agency which would help in making our honeymoon trip a joyful and hassle-free experience. I found TravelTriangle while surfing on Facebook and felt assured at once that this is the best choice for us. It indeed turned out to be one.
Day 1: Singapore Calling
We boarded our flight to Singapore in the morning and reached around 10 am. We directly went to the hotel from there and took rest till evening as we were really tired from the morning journey. Our room was really nice though it was small. But it was overall quite comfortable.
Later at night, we went for the night safari which was an amazing experience. The safari was for 2-3 hours. Unfortunately for us, it was raining so we missed out seeing some animals as they had gone inside for shelter.
Still, it was a really good experience, seeing all those animals up close. From there we went to Mustafa city center and had a lovely dinner there. Since it was very close to our hotel, we walked down to our property and called it a night.
Day 2: Fun And Frolic At Universal Studios
We had an early breakfast next morning. We left for the Universal Studios at 9:30 am. I think this was the best part of the trip. There were lots of adventure rides that we took including the transformers ride and the enchanted airways, etc.
It was a lot of fun. We enjoyed there till evening post which we went for dinner at a quaint Indian restaurant in Little India. After dinner, we came back to our hotel for the night.

Day 3: Sentosa’s Unmatched Charm
Sentosa Island: The third-day tour began after lunch. We started off with the cable car ride. We then went to experience the wings of time, a multi-sensory show displaying the beautiful Singaporean culture. There was holograms display in the water. We had never seen something like that ever before.
We also enjoyed the sky and Luge ride, which was a thrilling experience for us. To be enjoying all these activities with my wife was a beautiful experience and I think it made our bond stronger.
After that, we decided to see the Madame Tussauds Museum. It was not included in the package so we paid for it separately. It was a good experience.
Day 4: Exploring The Lion City
The fourth day was reserved for a city tour. We started out at 9 am after an early breakfast. We visited the Merlion Park, Orchid Road and the Fountain of Wealth at the Suntec City Mall. It is the largest fountain in the world and was a sight to behold.
Although Garden by the Bay was included in our package, due to some error, we could not get the passes. So we decided to cover it on our own and took the metro there. We finished our sightseeing by 9 pm and came back to our hotel, ready to call it a night as the sightseeing tour had exhausted us.
Day 5: The Transit Level
This was our last day in Singapore. We had the flight to Bali at 2 pm but as luck would have it, our flight got delayed by a couple of hours and we finally boarded the flight to Bali at 9 pm at night. It was probably the only glitch in the trip as our whole day got wasted. We finally reached Bali at 1:30 am.

Day 6: Touchdown At Beautiful Bali
Day 6 was all about watersports in the beautiful Bali beach. Our hotel was in Kuta and it was a really nice and a decent property. Post breakfast, we were taken to the Benoa Water Sports Centre for our adventure activities which included a banana boat ride and parasailing.
We skipped the banana boat ride and instead went for Seabed Walk. The activities lasted for 3 to 4 hours and we were free by 2 pm. The activities really exhausted us so we just relaxed in the afternoon. In evening, we went out for dinner.
We discovered a really good restaurant in the Legian street in Kuta. Being a vegetarian leaves one with less dining options outside India. Nevertheless, the food was really good there. After dinner, we went back to our hotel and retired for the night.
Day 7: The Denpasar City Tour
The seventh day was reserved for the Denpasar City Tour. We visited the Bali Museum. Then, we visited the local jewelry shop, the Bajra Sandhi, and another museum. There was an art museum nearby and we decided to give it a visit which turned out to be an amazing experience.
After lunch, we visited the coffee plantation, where we tried a lot of different types of coffee. The weather was very beautiful that day and for the sunset view, we went to the Tanah Lot temple. The view of the evening sun was fantastic from there.
At night, we were transferred to a private pool villa. Originally, we were supposed to stay in the Uppala Villa but due to some construction work, we were transferred to the Maharaja Villa, which was indeed a beautiful and spacious property.
Day 8: The Seminyak Rendezvous
After breakfast, we proceeded towards the Seminyak by 12 pm. The entire day was spent in shifting from Maharaja to Uppala villa. After shifting, we went to a restaurant near Maharaja Villa. The owner of the restaurant was really sweet. He took us in his own car to the chanting restaurant and even dropped us back. We loved the food there.
Day 9: The Beauty That Is Kintamani
On Day 9, we covered Kintamani and Ubud. We visited the main volcanoes there including the sacred Mount Agung, Kintamani and Mount Batu. We saw the rice fields there. We had local buffet lunch at Kintamani and it was just so good.

Post that, we visited the monkey forest. We did not stay there for long as we wanted to cover the waterfalls properly. We also visited the Elephant caves which consisted of rock paintings and fountains. We came back to our villa after covering these major attractions by 8 30 pm. We had a quick dinner before calling it a night.
Day 10: Beachin’ Around
We rented a private vehicle to explore the city. We went to the beach and came back by 1 pm. We shifted to Uppala from Maharaja Villa and later went to the double six beach. Then we enjoyed a live performance as we enjoyed a sumptuous dinner at ‘India restaurant’ which served us authentic Indian cuisine. After dinner, we came back to our villa.
Day 11: Goodbye To The Place That Gave Us The Most Beautiful Moments
This was our last day in Bali. We checked out of the hotel at 6 am and boarded the 9 am flight to Singapore. We reached Singapore by 12 noon. From there we caught the flight to Jaipur at 9 pm and headed back to India.
Overall, Singapore and Bali honeymoon tour was an amazing experience for us. We are glad we chose these as our honeymoon destination and thanks to TravelTriangle for making it such a comfortable and enjoyable trip for us.
