A few months ago in the year 2016, a batch of five members of my family had been to malaysia and Singapore, a part of 28 member team, the tour was organised by thomas cook travel agents. Our overall experience with thomas cook was good. The tour manager, mr swapnil wakhande of thomas cook, Mumbai office was very good and organised the tour very well. But for a few small hic-ups (food provided, and accommodations provided at some of the hotels provided were not up to the mark) here and there, the tour was quite enjoyable. Of the two places, we liked Singapore very much. I rate it second to that of las vegas of USA. The roads, hotels and markets, and places of tourist attractions were good. Among all the places in Singapore we liked our tour to sentosa island and I am uploading a brief video show at this island, which I liked much. Laser show and wax museum are the centre of attractions at this island. A few photos are also uploaded for viewers' interest. I wish to undertake a visit to Singapore again in future, not through travel agents, but on our own, as you will be at your ease and convenience and time and travel will be at your own convenience and discretion. The airport at Singapore which has three terminals, each one measures four times to that of Hyderabad, are worth watching. The airport terminals themselves look like big palaces with ostentatious infrastructure, elegance and ambience.
Since it was a festive season, there was a lot of congestion in KIA(Bangalore Airport), took some time for check-in process though, they were really particular about power-banks and Samsung Galaxy note 7 phones, which shouldn't be there in our checked-in baggage as they say. They warned that, our luggage won't be loaded onto flight, if found. So, double check once before you check-in your luggage. Boarding was smooth, and they were 10 mins earlier than the actual departure time. I'm wondering why this happens every time with Indigo, They're always a bit early. Aircraft was maintained well, it's neat and tidy. Usual announcements (No onboard sales crap for god's sake), and got landed safely in 50 mins.
Flight started from Mumbai is late about one hour but it completes its destination about in time. Amenities of flights are good. Service is also satisfactory. It is also my first experience for aboard. So it is too much romantic for me. Airlines service is too much good.
Hi Peeps Just landed back home in Delhi. I must thank "Sahil" at Malaysia Airlines to taking care of everything through my return flight from NAIA to IGI. I just went for 5 days to see my wife there. I was feeling pretty rough but the courteous staff (including the stewardess) made me feel really comfortable. Had nice time in Duty Free Shopping Also. Please do visit Philippines (Boracay, Baguio etc), I bet you'd LOVE it.
The Flight was on time and comfortable. The flight reached Mumbai on time. I believe only domestic airline which serve good on flight apart from Jet airways. The Hyderabad Airport is nice and clean an easy to access due to Expressway connected to city.

The location is very good. Find water supply problem all three days I stayed in hotel. There were ants in the hotel. Door lock was not proper. Food is not worth money, need to improve quality and options. Hotel staff was very cooperative. Location is far away from city. Not advisable if you...more »
There are two ways to reach Havelock from Port Blair - by ferry/cruise and seaplane and by golly! The second option is breathtakingly exciting. This facility / experience is exclusive to Havelock in India. The 9 seater is run by pawan hans. The whole experience is absolutely thrilling. Right from take off till the landing on water - you are in for a visual treat. The rates for foreigners is 5000 vis a vis 600 for islanders (people living on island for 10 yrs or more get islander status) but it is still worth one ride. Our pilot was a woman which made it even more special. The flight lasts for 15 min and there are specific slots during the day. The tickets can be bought either at port blair airport and the airbase in Havelock (open within specific time hours- so booking tickets has to be done in advance) needless to mention I felt like a star once you deboard on water. Reminded me of talespin cartoon!

While location is a common asset for all resorts on the small island with a 10 km diameter, Munjoh clearly is the best of all. Some big exotic chain hotels are in pipeline, but till then Munjoh reigns supreme! Essentially a property built across estate of coconut & betel trees. Stayed here for...more »
From Delhi to Kolkata we took train Rajdhani express, it is best train to go. There timing and food quality is excellent.
From Kolkata, Indian Airlines planes are excellent. Main attraction is included food in ticket, food was warm and tasty. Kolkata's airport is beautiful and very good in passenger service while the Port Blair airport is litte bit small.
Travel by Indian Airlines is very honorable. The air-hostess shown pretty good hospitality. The Dubai Airport has been changed allot in which there are many things to be noticed when compared with my last trip in 2010. I feel like I was in South-India not in Dubai as I can see many people are from India itself.
Well first of all coming Gwalior from Bangalore by train or other vehicle is not an easy task. So I chose to come to Gwalior by flight by Indian Airlines. It takes about 4-5 hrs. to come Gwalior from flight. My flight was on time and the flight services was also very good.
