    • Trip to Andaman

      It was a very well organised trip from Whiteshell travels. The drivers for cab pick up were very punctual. Even they come in advance and wait for you. From Whiteshell, Razi heard all of our needs politely and arranged a memorable trip. Though it was our first trip, we never faced any hassle at any part of our trip. Anil and Vasudev in Port Blair were very friendly and helping nature. Hotels arranged in Port Blair and Havelock were very good and in Neil was okay type. Overall it was a very memorable trip and last long for years in memory. Thanks to Travel Triangle and Whiteshell travels. First flight journey First cruise journey Unforgettable Scuba diving @ Havelock The beauty of Neil island beaches Overall the beautiful Andaman

    • Trip to Singapore

      We got our 10days trip for Langkawi & Singapore planned from travel triangle. All payments were done in advance as guided by TT. We were quite happy with the quick responses from TT as per our requirements in terms of sending quotations and rescheduling of itenary before finalizing one. The Andaman in Langkawi and Marina Bay in Singapore were our choice which obviously are best to stay...Grand Coperthone in Singapore was offered by TT as 5 star hotel which we will not grade above average. Yes, early check-in were welcomed in all three hotels. The first most thing we mentioned again and again to the travel agent that we want first priority passes in all activities as per itenary, which we were assured for same and we considered all activities charges payed well in advance to TT..but we ended up with disappointment with all standard admissions which we had to upgrade on our behalf right there at counter in Singapore. Also ground agent in Langkawi was not responding to our calls and blocked our number. We got stuck after visiting Crocodile park and had to arrange cab of our own on unexpected prices. Complete itenary was shared with us while we were boarding from Delhi airport which was to late to make any changes. Over all we made it a memorable trip with our efforts.

    FAQ's of Andaman

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Good time to visit Andaman is between October and May which constitutes summer and winter season in Andaman which is ideal for sightseeing and water sports activities.

    The ideal duration depends on how many islands you want to cover in the Andaman. Anything from 4 nights to 9 nights can be considered the ideal duration for a blissfull vacation in the Andaman.

    Mostly there is not much of a nightlife in the Andamans. Some hotels, resorts and bars here do offer a decent nightlife. even though it is a little sedate. However, during New Year's Eve and Christmas, all of Andaman is decked up in fairy lights and the atmosphere can only be defined as electrifying.

    Andaman is famed across the world for offering some of the greatest seafood of the country. The must try dishes here include crabs, prawns, shrimps, lobsters and a huge range of fish. Vegetarian options are alsos available and are just as good.

    Once awarded as the most beautiful beach in Asia, Radhanagar Beach is a definite must visit when here. The other beaches of Andaman are also beautiful and warrant a visit.

    There are no religious restrictions as such in Andaman, but general societal niceties and etiquettes are to be followed, such as asking people, read native tribes, before taking their photographs.
