Kolkata, India (PressExposure) December 10, 2015 -- Planning for a short trip to somewhere near to celebrate the arrival of 2016? Blue Mango Travels - the Kolkata-based travel and tourism company, recently announced a three-day trip to Mandarmani, to allow travel-lovers enjoy the New Year festivities in just the way they want. Booking requests have been flooding in since the announcement, revealed a high-placed official from the company.
The travel planners in charge of Blue Mango have been, to date, maintained a nice balance between arranging tours to exotic international destinations and short trips to places in and around West Bengal. Before the Mandarmani trip, the company has a single-day picnic trip to Deulti (near Mellock) planned on December 13. Judging by the enthusiasm regarding this picnic, it is only natural to expect that participation figures for the New Year trip planned by Blue Mango would be really high.
Speaking about the choice of venue for the New Year sojourn, the head of the tour company in Kolkata revealed that, apart from Mandarmani, Sonarpur, Bakkhali and Digha had been considered. An online survey, via Facebook and Google Plus, had been conducted - and respondents had voted overwhelmingly in favour of the serene beaches of Mandarmani. With a light laugh, the company chief revealed that she was secretly hoping that Mandarmani would win in the survey, since it was a personal favourite of hers. Digha, incidentally, got the least number of votes.
Blue Mango Travels will be organizing the New Year trip to Mandarmani in collaboration with a leading local holiday resort. The tour starts on the morning of the 30th of December from Kolkata, with the return scheduled in the evening of January 2nd. As has been the practice of Blue Mango for all its travel packages, free pick-up and drop services will be provided from a central location. The overall cost of the travel package has been kept at a very competitive level as well.
There will be entertainments galore during the Mandarmani trip, a well-placed source from Blue Mango informed. The highlight of the tour will be a special event on New Year's Eve - with an exciting lineup of fun activities, games, good food, great music...all leading up to the New Year countdown. Blue Mango Travels has also promised surprises for those going on the Mandarmani trip on the 1st of January.
At a media event organized last week, the Blue Mango staff provided a sneak peek into the preparations for this tour. Tour operators in Kolkata had decided to organize a New Year celebration trip as early as September, and had got into talks with holiday resort owners (at all the 4 shortlisted destinations) as well as bus service providers soon enough. All that remained was the final venue selection - and as soon as that was done, the promotions for this short travel package started.
The buzz around the Blue Mango Mandarmani trip during the New Year has been growing rapidly over the last couple of weeks. Requesting anonymity, several travelaholics from the city stated that - if the Kolkata-based travel company manages to match the service standards witnessed during the 'Puja Parikrama' tour in October, the upcoming trip would be a memorable affair indeed. Within a relatively short time, the profession reputation of Blue Mango travels has become strong.
The day picnic at Deulti is being treated as a test-ride by the tour organizers at Blue Mango Travels. The company is expecting bulk bookings for the Mandarmani trip - with the Christmas/New Year weekend being one of the preferred times of the year for family trips and group travel. Bookings will be open till the third week of December, but if the interest among people is any indication, seats are likely to get filled well before that.
Following the New Year extravaganza at Mandarmani, Blue Mango has a series of longer travel plans to different parts of India lined up. The company is also in the finalizing a couple of overseas tour packages, to New Zealand and South Africa. The company is off to a strong start, and by 2016 - it aspires to become the best travel planner in the country.
