    trip to thailand

    My family and I had been planning a vacation since a long time and when finally a friend of mine went to Thailand and recommended me for a family trip there, we were more than happy to agree. Also during my own destination research, I too found out that there were a lot of best places to see in Thailand with family and visiting them would not only offer a splendid travel experience but also rejuvenation.

    Now going on a trip is very different than planning one and frankly since this was an international destination, I decided to go for a package and that is when TravelTriangle came to our rescue (also recommended by friend).  True to their promise, they understood my requirements and connected me to their travel agents on board for customized quotes.

    We live in Pune but our flight was from Mumbai, so we started the journey and made sure we reached the airport on time. From the Chhatrapati International Airport, we boarded the flight to Phuket and reached there in the evening. The representative from the agent’s side was already present to receive us and after a warm welcome, we were transferred to our hotel.

    Post check-in, we decided to rest only for we were tired from the journey and that is how our first day ended.

    Now it was time for some adventure and we made sure we had more than enough of it for we soon indulged in a snorkeling session. It was one of the finest experiences of our trip, but little did we know that the best was yet to come in the coming days.

    Anyway, post the snorkeling, we had our lunch on the island which was once again delicious and suitable for vegetarians like us. Later after spending some time chilling and clicking pictures, we left the island and proceeded back to Phuket.

    Day 3: A surreal visit to the James Bond Island

    Today we visited the James Bond Island via a long tail boat and it was one of the most enjoyable and scenic rides that we had ever undertaken. Surrounded by greenery and bamboo trees all around, it was truly out of the world and looked more exotic than the places we see in movies (James Bond movies).

    We stayed on the island for around 45 minutes and then after a photo clicking session, proceeded towards the Muslim Village which was located on the seashore. The food here was quite good and a bit more on the spicier side but it was all good overall.

    In the evening, we went for an animal safari in an enclosed protected car to see animals in wild. It was nice to see the animals in open while we were in a cage-like-car for we could observe them in a better manner.
