A well-planned journey always ensures delight! 

Being a travel enthusiast myself, I aim to explore 5 to 6 new countries annually. How do I manage this? By meticulously planning my trips, with invaluable assistance from Veena World. Since my inaugural tour booking at Veena World's Prabhadevi office in 2016, I've continuously journeyed with them for the past nine years, realizing my dream of extensive travel. Initiated as solo ventures, these trips evolved with the invaluable support of a dedicated travel consultant cum guide, precisely tailored to my preferences. Motivated by the desire to behold the world in its entirety, I approach Veena World's Prabhadevi office, presenting a curated list of countries I aspire to explore, seeking insights from their destination experts on optimal visit times. Subsequently, I finalize my travel arrangements. To date, my travels with Veena World have spanned 59 countries.

Among my visited destinations, Norway and Finland hold a special place, each drawing me back for repeat visits. At the outset of every year, my intentions are modest, aiming to explore merely three or four countries. However, as the year progresses, my aspirations expand, often culminating in visits to seven or eight countries. My allegiance to Veena World is unwavering, owing to their meticulously crafted itineraries encompassing all noteworthy attractions, alongside consistently delectable cuisine. Foremost among Veena World's attributes are their tour managers, possessing a wealth of knowledge and experience, adept at navigating any situation that may arise during tours. Despite embarking on solo journeys, the assurance of safety provided by Veena World to my family is invaluable. Memories of our South Korea tour, helmed by Tour Manager Sampada, remain vivid. Contrary to my prior experiences with male tour managers, Sampada's service and efficiency were exceptional, exemplified by her spontaneous suggestion to enjoy lunch within the comfort of the bus during heavy rainfall. This impromptu gesture fostered a congenial atmosphere reminiscent of a family picnic. In my view, Veena World's tour managers transform into superheroes when adorned in their signature yellow T-shirts. Documenting each tour with photographs, particularly of breakfast and meals, has become a cherished tradition, with these visual mementos serving as a repository of joyful memories.

Chalo Kashmir! 

Taking in the Surreal Beauty of Dal Jheel in Kashmir

Last Chance to Visit Kashmir this Summer Vacation 

Kashmir, often hailed as the paradise on earth, has bloomed with natural beauty, attracting a multitude of tourists. Regardless, tourists have consistently prioritized Kashmir for its unique charm. In my forty years in the travel and tourism industry, I've witnessed Kashmir's allure endure. Moreover, due to government reforms, Kashmir has only grown more enchanting. This year marks Veena World's eleventh anniversary. Despite occasional setbacks like floods, landslides, or past extremist activities, Kashmir has always rebounded when conditions permitted. Now, extremist activities are a thing of the past. Undoubtedly, Kashmir reigns supreme on tourists' lists this year. Presently, Veena World operates 48 tours in Kashmir with over a hundred tour managers, a trend ongoing for the past two months and continuing for the next two. Although many tours are fully booked, some still have available seats. If you haven't booked yet, visit Veena World's office promptly and embark on a journey to Kashmir. Most tourists prefer regular tours of 6, 7, or 8 days. Additionally, we've introduced trips with upgraded hotels, responding to tourists' demands. Ensure you check the hotel names before booking. So, let's embark on a journey to Kashmir with Veena World. For those who prefer personalized trips with accommodations, sightseeing, transport, and flights, Veena World Customized Holidays caters to your needs. Furthermore, Veena World Corporate Travel organizes successful MICE tours to Kashmir.
