We wanted to celebrate our 10th anniversary in a grand fashion. Spending a few days at an international destination with our family seemed like the ideal way to make this anniversary unforgettable.
We were comparing different packages on the internet and we found that out of all the tour and travel companies available, TravelTriangle had the most competitive prices. We wanted to go to a tropical destination in Asia. Bali wasn’t a good destination to go in February due to its rainy season, so we chose Thailand for our family vacation.
Our daughter was really upbeat about having to visit a foreign country for the first time in her life. My parents-in-law wore a sense of anticipation and excitement on their faces I hadn’t seen for long. Thailand certainly promised to be a memorable vacation.

Special Moments that made our amazing trip to Thailand shine out
There were a lot of places, moments, activities, and little things that stood for each of us. Thailand as a destination, truly, had something for everyone. Here are all the moments that made us fall in love with this tropical paradise.
Coral Island: The perfect visual treat for my little princess
As we took a speedboat, from the Jomtien Beach in Pattaya, we headed towards a beautiful island with crystal clear blue waters. Coral Island was a perfect one day retreat for our family to enjoy. My daughter enjoyed a lot playing at the scenic white sandy beach. She didn’t even shy from going for a splash in the pool every now and then.
Other activities we did at Coral Island: Paragliding, banana boat ride, and jetskiing
Witnessing the jewels of the animal kingdom at Safari World: An exciting day for my mother-in-law
On our penultimate day in Thailand, the family went for a visit to the Safari World and Marine Park. A sanctuary to all the rare animals of the animal kingdom- both on land and on water.
My mother-in-law has a fascination of seeing animals like the tiger, zebra, and giraffe. Seeing her get involved and deeply intrigued by the wildlife was interesting. In our package, we also had included a packed lunch for the day. So after having our packed lunch, we went to visit the Marine Park to see some really really cool aquatic animals.
Ticket Price: INR 1380 per person (adults); INR 1140 per person (kids)
Timings: 9 am to 5.30 pm
Vibrant nightlife for my forever young father-in-law
During our three days in Pattaya, every evening we explored the Walking Street market and its surrounding restaurants. The vibrant nightlife, burgeoning tourist scene, and a bustling market provided us with a nice atmosphere for shopping which could be equated to something very similar in India.
My father-in-law enjoyed his time exploring the night market, shopping for souvenirs, and trying food and drinks that belong to the Thai culture.
Other places to shop in Pattaya: Central Festival Pattaya, Royal Garden Plaza, Pattaya Floating Market, and Mimosa.
A romantic dinner cruise for the lovely couple
We celebrated our 10th anniversary along with Valentine’s Day on the Chaophraya river cruise in Bangkok. A magical setting on a luxury boat, that took us around the city of Bangkok while we dine in luxury and enjoy live music. My husband and I really loved this evening that rekindled the feeling of love and affection towards each other which felt as strong as it was 10 years ago.
Cruise Price: INR 2,800 per person
Timings: 7 pm to 9.30 pm
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our time in Thailand. Our experience over there was so rich, diverse, and exciting that it was impossible for everyone not to find one amazing moment during those six days. I couldn’t have asked or imagined of a better way to celebrate my 10th anniversary. Over the years, as we’ll look back at this trip to Thailand, it’ll always be with tons of memories and loads of stories to tell.
Hotel Review for Dusit Thani Pattaya
The hotel in Pattaya was really good. The staff were helpful and welcoming. The rooms in general were spacious and comfortable.
Our rating for Dusit Thani Pattaya: 4/5
Hotel Review for Amari Watergate, Bangkok
This was by far the best hotel we had stayed on a vacation in a long time. Everything about the hotel gave it a luxurious feel that didn’t go unnoticed by any of my family members. The food was delicious, the staff were helpful, rooms were comfortable, and the hotel was centrally located near the major sightseeing points.
Our rating for Amari Watergate, Bangkok: 5/5
- We had a few cab delays and miscommunication between the driver and our agent. That led to our sightseeing schedule running late on a few days.
- The staff and tour guides selected by TravelTriangle in Thailand need to be a bit more responsive and helpful towards the tourists.
Thailand has something for everyone to rejoice Book your Thailand family package and witness the magic of Thailand!
