Due to this need, a major portion of the forest was cleared to make Singapore one of the important ports for trading activities.

Sharmapanjul's 9 days trip to Clementi

We booked Phuket and Krabi package in 2019 for trip in March 2020 through Travel Park. I have simply one word 'Imaging Efforts and Services' by Travel Park. Hotels used were good , cabs are on time. Overall trip is budget friendly and value for money. Owner of Travel Park Ms. Preeti is so gentle, co-operative and most importantly she is always ready to listen you as a customer and giving suggestions without getting any type of iritaion from our quaries. Overall it was a wonderful expression with Travel Park.

Ash's 8 days trip to Clementi

I planned a holiday to Dubai with Travel Park and must say that it was a fabulous experience with planning and execution. Preeti from Travel Park does a great job with understanding her client requirements and then customizing the package according to your needs. She was pretty flexible and accommodative in changing the itinerary as per our schedule and providing a very cost effective package. This included private transfers, timely pick ups, very professional and courteous drivers and also flexible with the needs of my senior citizen parents. It was a wonderful vacation. The only thing I would recommend is to improve their payment modes and also visa services which was time consuming and frustrating. But after a great vacation, looking back it was all worth it! Kudos to Preeti for giving my family a lovely time off at the end of the year and making it easy for me to plan.... ASHIMA AGRAWAL
