Trip to SeychellesJust concluded our dream sea destination Seychelles. Both me and my wife were mesmerized by the beauty of the nature. The vacation was made all the more memorable because of the seamless service of the tour operators arranged by Travel Triangle.
Trip to SeychellesVery well executed trip. Ashutosh from HolidaysBox made sure that everything was perfect and guided us throughout our trip to Seychells , he even helped us getting Mahe city tour done when we were in Seychelles by just a call. I Highly Recommend HolidaysBox for a trip to Seychells.
Trip to SeychellesThis is my second booking through Travel Triangle. The support rendered by the travel agent with all necessary details on timely manner is very much appreciable. However, there was communication gap for pick up from Hotel for Day 1 and Day 2 of our trips. This could have been handled better by the agent at Krabi. Other than this, it was perfect coordinating with Travel Triangle!!!
Trip to SeychellesThanks to Sandhya from Holiday box. We enjoyed our trip to Seychelles (La Digue, Praslin, Mahe) !!!
Trip to SeychellesInitially when we tried using Travel Traingle, we were very skeptical. After getting the quotes from several travel agencies we felt a little.more confident. The service from the travel agency, Red Letter Holidays was really great from start to finish. They (Parul from Red Letter Holidays and Shikha from Travel Triangle) would respond to all my queries and the smallest of questions quite rapidly and with a great deal of courteousness Their travel plan for Seychelles was also very good as they ensured to leave plenty of time for rest and relaxation. What surprised me most was that the local contact of Red Letter Holidays took care of us like royalty and made us feel welcome to the Creole culture. A big thank you to Red Letter Holidays and Travel Triangle for making our Honeymoon a special one. Prasanna and Harshini

Trip to SeychellesThe package and the service what travel triangle provide, no one can provide the same with attractive prices in budget... Thanks to Shivani from travel trangle side. I suggest everyone to go with Youngistan Travels specially Mr. Saif because the Itinerary he had planned for me was amazing with lot of experience and amazing memories. The Patience that Saif has to tackle all issues irrespective of time and the follow up he do is amazing... We really had a lot of fun with great joy and pleasure. As we got upgraded to 5 star property of Adaaran Vadoo water villa from normal water villa and it was the best memory a one can get.

The weather in December is fairly cloudy at times and rainfall is pretty common due to the Northwest Monsoon. So, if you're looking for a sunny holiday in December, Seychelles weather is not ideal.
Seychelles is a politically stable country. The islands are located outside of cyclone belt so there is no urgent threat of thunderstorms. Avoid going outdoors or to remote islands when the rainfall is incessant.
Seychelles is a luxury holiday destination so, most accommodations are available in form of high-end resorts and beach resorts. However, guesthouses and lodges are available in Mahe and Praslin Islands.
