If your visa gets rejected you can reapply (if time permits) with the help of the visa consultant.

Thailand New Year's Trip (30th Dec - 5th Jan) Trip N Tales team has a really unique itinerary for Thailand. It includes Khao Sok, that is certainly one of most stunning places I have visited. A good couple of days there to relax and soak up its colors, rawness and beauty. Trip leader Shubham was fun and experienced. However, the itinerary can be even better with a little more time to explore Bangkok, given that its a huge city with ornate shrines and vibrant nightlife.

North East Trip (9th - 17th dec) It was a nice experience.Aditi was leading the group. She was amazing,party lover and full of life and was being nice and interactive to everyone. Stay in cherrapunji and kaziranga was good .Shillong stay could have been better , very limited option of food . Living Root bridge stay could have been arranged inspite of day trip . Trip was nice overall,it had different flavours to it. Blue lagoon swim, mask masking interaction and kaziranga were wao moments of the trip Group was nice and there could be one night stay of hostel beds to encourage more interaction.
