“Every Love Story is beautiful but ours is my Favourite.”
Mr. Shibin Koshy from Pathanamthitta had contacted us (Kerala.com Travel Division at Kochi, Kerala) to enquire about the details of a Thailand honeymoon trip. This trip was for his brother Mr. Shijin P Mathew and his wife Mrs. Renu Elsa Varghese. Our Travel Assistant Manager Ms. Sheela Jacob helped to plan this trip of 3 nights and 4 days to the mesmerising place of Pattaya and Bangkok in Thailand.
To begin a new chapter of their love story the newly wedded couple took a flight from Cochin International Airport to the Don Mueang International Airport at Thailand on 25th August 2017, morning 6:55 am. They reached Thailand by 8:00 am and were picked up by the driver from the airport.
They firstly visited the Sriracha Tiger Zoo at Pattaya. Before entering the zoo, the couple had their breakfast from the restaurant there. After breakfast they went to see the animals inside the zoo. They also got the chance to see various shows by these animals. They watched the jaw - cracking Crocodile show, the roaring Tiger show, the jumbo Elephant show and the race of the Pigs. Their experience of watching the tigers feeding the pigs, feeding the tiger cubs and many such activities really amazed the couple.
After the whole show got over, they left the zoo and proceeded on to the Grand Bella Hotel at Pattaya, where their stay was assigned. They reached there by 2:00 pm and checked in. After an afternoon nap and getting freshened up they went to the reception area from where they were picked up by the driver. He took them to the Alcazar Show in Pattaya city. They reached the venue for the 5:00 pm show.

The elements of acting, stage design, costumes, performances and technology is skilfully blended together to bring out a great show. The couple enjoyed the amazing show and then after the show, they returned back to their hotel with a great experience. They reached the Grand Bella Hotel for a good night’s sleep.

This island is a beautiful getaway location, just three kilometres southeast of Phuket. The place is locally known as Koh Hae. The two beaches, Long Beach and Banana Beach is an ideal place for activities like snorkelling. This activity is a great way to explore the depths of the sea and view the mesmerising corals. The couple enjoyed the beautiful sights of the island and the corals. By noon they enjoyed a scrumptious lunch at the Coral Island and then continued their tour. By night they returned back to their hotel at Pattaya for the night’s sleep.
With the next morning’s sunrise (27th August) they checked out from the Grand Bella Hotel at Pattaya after breakfast. They proceeded on to Bangkok.
