With the upcoming wedding season and over 18 months of pandemic paused honeymoons, Thomas Cook (India) Limited and its Group Company and SOTC Travel have identified strong pent-up demand from India’s couple segment.

For romance with a bit of adventure, included are thrilling seaplane rides, an elephant safari, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, zorbing, parachuting or exciting treks.
