Anand's 7 days trip to Chiang MaiThe trip was good, thanks to Mr. Rahul Khantwal he well supported. Things that I didn't like: 1) The city tour, in city tour only things that they covered was Big Buddha and Chalong temple nothing gets suggested more from their side, you have to explore from your own. 2) On the first day, they asked for extra money by saying the national park fee for the coral island in the quotation they mentioned 2 national park fees but while the trip they ask for 3rd island too, that I didn't like to because they didn't mention that in there original quotation. 3) At the starting of the trip, they start adding unnecessary issues, like Phuket to Karbi transfer will be via ferry but in my quotation, it is clearly mentioned it will be by road. 4) Last and important thing, keep everything in writing because at the end agents get changed and they do not care what they talked about initially.
Darra's 6 days trip to Chiang MaiExcellent services by Tripoholic. Well planned budgeted trip. Gaurav ji n sree were also excellent in their work... Night out at Patong beach, Bangla street in Phuket. Location of Hotel in Phuket was very near to patong beach and Bangla street. Swimming pool was V gud in both the hotel at Pattaya and Phuket. Indian night clubs in Pattaya was the best. Also enjoyed shopping in Indira Market in Bangkok. Madamme Tusaad should not be missed. James Bond Island is worth watching. Overall well planned and executed by Tripoholic..

Sagarvakharia's 5 days trip to Chiang MaiHi This is the first time i did online booking and selecting Travel Triangle was not bad choice after all.

Gave all the related information in quotation as required for the destination. 2. Made all the suitable arrangements perfectly. 3. Agents were very Friendly and didn't loose cool. 4. Hassle free sites for payment process. 5. On Trip assistance was amazing. 6. Very comfortable with overall experience. Cons - 1. Travel ticket could be made cheaper. 2. Hotel bookings were costlier compared to existing rate. 3. More locations in city tour could be added in the same package.

Due to which I paid extra money 800 bhat which was not required in 4 islands trips. I talked with team for this but was not helpful. Rest all was good. Patong Beach, I loved and enjoyed the most.
