He elaborates on the amazing natural ambience of the place and tells us how it is the perfect destination for couples and families. He booked his package via TravelTriangle and it included his transfers, hotels, and sightseeing all for a cost of INR 35,500. Let us hear his story.

    I had heard many good things about Kerala from a lot of people and so when I decided to take a vacation with my family, Kerala turned out to be the perfect destination. Since everyone around me praised the place for it’s beautiful scenery and the relaxation that it offered, I thought it would be an ideal destination for family bonding.

    TravelTriangle was discovered via internet ad and I was attracted to their concept of connecting you with multiple travel agents for competitive quotes and itineraries. I chose Best Holidays India Pvt. Ltd. as my agent and was soon sorted when it came to booking a land package for my trip.

    Day 1: Munnar – Begining of good times

    We reached Kochi at 2 PM and we were picked up from the Ernakulam railway station and taken to Munnar. On the way, we had our lunch and also saw a waterfall. We then went to the Elephant Park but, unfortunately, it was closed. So we checked into the hotel and relaxed for a while eventually retiring for the night.
