A Mind-Blowing Solo Trip To Cambodia Like Priyadarshini’s Is Worth Every Effort

I’ve always wanted to go on a solo trip to one of the South East Asian countries and I chose Cambodia because of its rich amalgamation of various cultures, ethnic groups (including a multitude of hill tribes) and religions. I have heard a lot about the friendliness of the locals (the majority of whom belong to the fabled Khmer ethnic group), the vibrant night markets, the palaces, the Khmer culture and the fantastical fabled temples. Cambodia is also one of the rare elective monarchies in the world and this made me all the more curious about the place and encouraged me to take a solo trip to Cambodia. In addition, I’m a big fan of Tomb Raider and was dying to see the Ta Prohm temple aka “the Tomb Raider temple” where the movie was shot.

I have also read a lot about the Vietnamese war and the devastating effect it’s had on Cambodia. Cambodia has had its fair share of tragedies but despite that its people are known to still have their fabled unwavering Cambodian spirits up. Present day Cambodia has come to be known as one of the fastest growing economies in the world. All this made me want to visit Cambodia, or in other words, the Kingdom of Cambodia, to get a feel of all the stories I’ve heard of the legendary place. I connected with TravelTriangle who planned a customized solo trip for me.

Come with me as I explore and unfold the secrets of beauty treasured for several years at these breathtaking sites in Cambodia:

Tonle Sap

I was excited to visit Tonle Sap for a floating villages tour. Tonle Sap is a combined name given to a serene freshwater lake and a river in Cambodia. The Tonle Sap Lake is connected to the popular Mekong River through Tonle Sap River. Exploring the beautiful floating villages was a wonderful experience. I was awestruck by the house like structures made out of sticks and bamboo on the boats floating on the water. I enjoyed interacting with locals, especially children while walking through the stilted villages along the banks of the lake. They were so cheerful and friendly that I could easily match my vibe with them. I even ate some steamy delicious noodles at one of the floating restaurants and made the most of my solo trip to Cambodia.

Angkor Wat

It was time to visit Angkor Wat temples, the major highlight of my trip and one of the most awaited dream visits. This huge, grand and stunning temple complex has always been a symbolic structure for Cambodia. This massive religious site was built for the Khmer Empire as a hindu temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu. But towards the end of the 12th century, Angkor Wat became a Buddhist temple. It was as if each brick of the temple had to story to narrate. I was left simply stunned by the quality of architecture – the extent of thought, precision and detailing of the inscriptions on the stones. The guide spent several hours explaining the writings engraved on the stones and the messages they conveyed. The skilfully cut and designed sandstone temples in the complex still stand intact to reveal the glory of that period to all those who are ready to listen.

Ta Prohm Temple

As mentioned earlier, visiting this temple was one of the major reasons for taking a solo trip to Cambodia. Ta Prohm temple is one of the most popular temples within the Angkor Archaeological Park in Krong Siem Reap. The temple was built during the 12th to the 13th century and was originally named Rajavihara. The Bayon architectural style of the temple brought in the name ‘The Bayon Temple’. This UNESCO World Heritage Site was also an impressive structure. Someone told me that clicking a picture with the Bayon faces brings good luck. I wasn’t sure about the veracity of this claim, so I took many pictures with these just in case!

Koh Ker And Beng Mealea

Priya at Bengon Mealea

Priya at Bengon Mealea

Koh Ker is a beautiful temple complex dating back to the 10th-century. The temple is surrounded by lush and dense forest which adds more mystical charm to this site. I visited Koh Ker on the third and final day of my stay in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The view atop the Koh Ker temple complex was breathtaking. The stepped 7-tiered pyramid structure is undoubtedly a masterpiece. Its stained yet strong walls have developed the growth of weeds as if the structure has embraced its surroundings.

I also visited the Beng Mealea temple. A temple from the period of Angkor Wat, this is located 40 kilometers away from it, towards the East. The Beng Mealea temple was equally breathtaking. This one is also known as the Jungle Temple and was quite literally the stuff of dreams. The entire place had an ethereal feel to it and left me spellbound.

While traveling to Cambodia, travelers must carry lightweight and light-colored clothing. Keep comfortable shoes and sandals. Always carry a powerful sunscreen and deodorant along. Keep an unlocked mobile phone with a Cambodian SIM card. If you are traveling in the rainy season, do not forget to carry umbrellas.

I booked my solo trip to Cambodia with Bamboo Hat Tours using the TravelTriangle App. I chose this agency as their itinerary fit my budget and also covered a lot of places in a short span of time. The trip was planned and organized by Sophie from Bamboo Hat Tours and she was very helpful. She was available 24/7 and was quick to respond to my queries. One day prior to my departure to Cambodia from Bangalore, however, I was struck down with fever. But all my bookings were done and I also got my leaves approved from office management. So, I decided to take this trip and because all the arrangements were made by TravelTriangle properly, my trip went really smooth and happy.

Here are some Cambodia travel tips from my solo trip experience:

          • It’s important to ensure that one applies for the e-visa using the official government website
          • Book the flights (at least 2-3 months) in advance to ensure the prices are cheaper
          • It’s important for one to plan and discuss with their travel agent about the temples to be covered
          • It’s important to ensure that one doesn’t lose the Angkor temple visa as doing so can attract a hefty fine

          Cambodia is a destination that beholds several mysteries that can be uncovered only by taking a trip to Cambodia. And if it is a solo trip to Cambodia like Priyadarshini’s, you are there all by yourself to explore and witness the mystical beauty of this nation. So, get inspired and make your dream of a solo journey come true.

It was our honeymoon trip and we wanted to visit a place which has somewhat cold weather in the first half of May and also cooler than Mumbai, so it had to be somewhere in the northeast of India. But then a close relative suggested us to visit Bhutan who had visited it in the same month a couple of years back. Also, my wife being an architect is always fascinated by historical monuments & Bhutan has plenty of them, along with it, the place has a wonderful climate, admirable cleanliness, and is surrounded by natural beauty. Thus making it our first choice. Another best part is, Indian currency is accepted everywhere and all of this is what made spending 7 days in Bhutan sheer magic.

Memorial Chorten, also known as Thimphu Chorten is a stupa located on Doe Boom Lam is unlike most stupas in the world. The Memorial Chorten does not enshrine human remains but instead represents the mind of the Buddha. And at Buddha point, we witness the Buddha Dordenma statue in Thimphu at 51.5 meters is among the largest Buddha statues in the world. Located atop a hill in Kuensel Phodrang Nature Park, the statue is gilded in bronze and gold. Along with this, we also visited the textile museum located near the National Library. Established in 2001, the museum sustains and promotes the art of weaving. One can also buy books and textiles from the museum shop. The trip to Zangdok Palri Temple is also worth mentioning and our Bhutan 7 day trip cost covered all the sightseeing expenses.

2. Punakha Valley: Most scenic destination

The next morning after breakfast we drove to low lands of Punakha valley via Dochula Pass. Post lunch we visited majestic Punakha Dzong placed strategically at the junction of the Pho Chu and Mo Chu rivers, the dzong was built in 1637 by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal. In the evening we had our river rafting in the ice-cold Mo Chu river. After adventurous rafting and a dip in the river, we had a nice warm breakfast followed by campfire and dinner. The night’s stay in the camp was amazing. Camping and rafting were arranged by Druk rafting services which was a part of our customized 7 days itinerary in Bhutan.

3. Paro: Home to many sacred sites

One of the best experiences from our 7 days itinerary in Bhutan, visiting Paro is something we will always remember. After the cozy morning we headed to Paro, we checked in to Hotel Khamsum in the afternoon and had one of the best lunches ever, later in the evening we went for some shopping for family & friends. Weather was a bit cold with the breeze which makes your evening walk memorable. Dinner was outstanding again, thanks to Chef of Khamsum.

4. Tiger’s Nest: A splendid monastery

After early morning checkout, we enjoyed a thrilling trek to Tiger’s Nest. Resting on a cliff you can reach the top in almost 2 hours if you are an enthusiastic trekker. Also known as Taktshang Goemba or Paro Taktsang, Tiger’s Nest is a monastery that is perched on a cliff and offers you a spectacular scenery of blue pine and rhododendron forest. Make sure your Bhutan 7 day trip cost covers this awesome destination. Legends state that Guru Rinpoche flew to this site on a tigress’ back to mollify a local demon. After our visit to Tiger Nest, we headed back to Phuentsholing at Hotel Damchen.

I and my wife prefer Indian food and easily finding Indian cuisine in Paro was really a delight. The food was delicious and the quality of the food was uncompromised. The healthy and tasteful food enriched our experience and provided us with gratification. Hotel Khamsum in Paro undoubtedly serves the best Indian cuisine that is prepared by expert chefs whose adroitness can easily be seen in its fantastic flavor and aromas.

enjoying the nature

Since we were planning to spend 7 days in Bhutan, shopping was something we obviously indulged in. 90% of our shopping was from Paro as our guide suggested that goods in Paro are authentic. We would suggest bargaining as some goods are overpriced. Buddhist praying flag is famous, thus if you happen to visit Bhutan then do buy them. Shopping in Paro is the perfect place to buy souvenirs and gifts for your friends and families. At the Paro market, one can find exclusive items that represent the tradition and culture of this place. We would like to mention that Bhutan is economical and our Bhutan 7 day trip cost that we had set out separately, covered it all.

Here are some travel tips we would like to give to anyone planning to spend 7 days in Bhutan.

  • Make a list of things that you might forget.
  • Pre-plan your outfits so that you don’t end up carrying unwanted luggage.
  • Carry photocopies of important documents.
  • Provide alternative contacts to reach you in case of an emergency.
  • Plan early to save on flight costs.
  • Do some research on locality, climate, and issues around the place of your stay or visit.
  • Be flexible on your schedule as things might not work out as planned.

It was simply amazing, the tour was going according to the schedule and the agents Himavat Destination was always available to any assistance. I am glad that I found TravelTriangle who helped us make our 7 days in Bhutan absolutely amazing. Cheers…!!!

Bhutan is a paradise for nature lovers and those who want to escape from the bustling city life. The place offers a sense of belongingness and serenity that provide an amazing experience to families and couples and we think a glimpse of our 7 days itinerary in Bhutan would have told you so. To enjoy this beautiful country, plan your own itinerary and visit some stunning historical places when you book your Bhutan tour with TravelTriangle

Can You Plan A Trip To Leh Ladakh Much Cooler Than Sandeep’s? He Dares You

It’s not always about the destination, it is about the journey too. Ladakh is such a place where you enjoy being on the road as much as the destination itself. The scenic views out your window keep your mind away from that ‘are we there yet?’ You take mental pictures of the landscapes. And, we have so many mental and digital memories of our Leh Ladakh trip.

We had heard a lot about Leh Ladakh’s natural beauty. The harsh weather conditions in Leh Ladakh along with high altitude did not deter us from taking a trip to the top. This time, we were open for an adventure and explore the most beautiful place in India. So, we got in touch with TravelTriangle and booked a trip as per our customizations. The next thing we know, we were on our adventure in Ladakh.

Here’s a list of all the scintillating places to see in Leh Ladakh that we ticked off our list during our fun escapade. Take a look!

1. Sangam

most beautiful tricks of nature

scenic views

road as much as the destination itself

Ladakh's natural beauty

The confluence of Zanskar and Indus is one of the most beautiful tricks of nature. The barren mountains sprouted with shrubbery here and there overlook the river. The whole scenery was stupendous. The mental image is etched deep in my mind. We could clearly see the difference between the colors of the two rivers. It is almost magical how the waters mix together.

2. Khardung La


Leh Ladakh was still cold

the snow had not melted

feast to our eyes and the feeling


We Visited On Leh Ladakh Trip

Because we had to ride all the way up to the second-highest mountain pass in the world! Since the weather in Leh Ladakh was still cold, the snow had not melted. There were snowclad mountains all around the pass. It was a feast to our eyes and the feeling of being at an altitude of 17,582 ft was amazing.

3. Pangong Lake

Pangong Lake

Pangong Lake was must to justify the best itinerary for Leh Ladakh. We had a lovely time by the lake and so many pictures by the lake, with that famous scooter from 3 Idiots too. The night was spent inside the tents by the lakes. It was truly a night to remember. Even the route from Nubra Valley to Pangong along Shyok River was astounding.

4. Druk Padma Karpo School

We even visited the school run by the person who inspired the character of Rancho from 3 Idiots movie. The school is located amidst beautiful scenery and the walls are decorated with colorful graffiti. I wish my school were like that.

Ladakh welcomed us with many surprises, some of which were unforgettable experiences to indulge in. Here’s all what we did.

1. ATV Ride In Nubra Valley

ATV Ride In Nubra Valley

me and with my wife

Raiding the sand dunes of the desert in Nubra Valley was definitely some experience. It was so much fun that I would suggest anyone who is planning a trip. The barren landscape all around made it even more special. I can easily say that it was one of the best experiences in life. If you want to plan a trip to Leh Ladakh, then you should definitely include this experience to your itinerary.

2. Camel Ride

Camel Ride

Riding on the back of these camels in the desert of Nubra

Another fun experience that we had in Nubra Valley was camel riding. The camels in Leh are different from what you see in the desert of Rajasthan. These Bactrian camels have not one but two humps. Riding on the back of these camels in the desert of Nubra was a cherishable experience.

3. Shopping in Ladakh

Best Experiences From Our Ladakh Trip

We found many shopping places in Ladakh from where we purchased Pashmina shawls, stoles and mufflers. These were quite expensive and you don’t know which one is real Pashmina because of so many outlets selling different varieties of Pashmina. We found the prices of woolen items better than Ahuja Sons. We also purchased silver jewelry as there was a lot of variety there and we recommend fellow travelers to buy silver jewelry from Tibetan market instead of the main market.

Here are all the best hotels to stay in Leh Ladakh that we had booked for our trip.

Day 1: The Grand Himalaya

In Leh, we stayed at the Grand Himalaya, one of the best hotels to stay in Leh. It was pretty good in terms of approachability since it was in the vicinity of Leh main market. The rooms had ample space with central heating which helped us to keep off cold and to acclimatize. The hotel service and hospitality were good.

Day 2: Nubra Ecolodge

In Nubra, we stayed at Sumur – Nubra Ecolodge for one night. The place was very clean and beautiful. We loved clean rooms and facilities to keep the room warm. It was quite peaceful during nights. We also enjoyed fresh food from local farms managed by property. It was very unique in itself.

Day 3: Hundar Sarai cottages

Next night we stayed in Hundar – Hundar Sarai cottages. The architecture and dome bed set up were unique. The hospitality was great there. Thanks to the hot water bottle facility to keep us warm throughout the night.

Day 4: Himalayan Inn Tents

The next night we stayed at Pangong – Himalayan Inn Tents. The tents were average but this was the only property available at that time because of the latest demolition by the local administration. The hospitality and food were great. The caretaker of the tents provided us with an extra blanket and warm water bottles on request.

The places to eat in Leh Ladakh are few and not all cafes are lavish as one would expect. We visited Neha Restaurant in Leh Market and Cafe Cloud in Thiksey. If you want authentic food to eat in Leh Ladakh, then you should consider staying in a homestay where you will be pampered with local delicacies.

  • Comfortable and sturdy shoes
  • Sunglasses and sunscreen
  • Cotton clothing
  • A leather jacket or any other warm jackets
  • Essential medicines
  • A good quality camera

Here are some do’s and don’ts in Leh trip that you should abide by if you want to enjoy a hassle-free vacation in the region.


  • Do plan well in advance as this is not a luxury trip but an adventurous one.
  • Start practicing long walks to develop proper endurance and stamina of oneself. Ladakh will leave you out of breath.
  • Carry proper layer-based clothing so that you can adjust yourself as per ever-changing weather of Leh region.


  • Do not litter. Try to avoid making use of plastic. Even if you need to resort to making use of plastic water bottles, keep accumulating the garbage and dump within proper dustbins rather than just throwing them anywhere.
  • Try to keep a steel bottle or flasks as a remedy against plastic bottles.
  • Don’t rely too much on medicine to acclimatize. Gain elevation slowly. Try to sleep at lower altitudes to avoid catching AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness)

Keep these important tips in mind as these may come in handy on your Ladakh trip.

  • Take at least a day to acclimatize yourself when you land in Leh to avoid catching AMS. Don’t rely on medicine.
  • Take Diamox only if you feel absolutely necessary.
  • Avoid using plastic bottles to keep the environment clean.
  • Instead of doing long road journeys, staying overnight over places to make your trip comfortable. Don’t rush to cover much ground daily. Try to reach and settle before sunlight.
  • Most importantly, enjoy the journey as much as the destination.
  • Don’t stay for long at Khardungla pass as it can impact your breathing due to low oxygen levels
  • Opt for ATV ride at Nubra as the scenery of sand dunes and mountains is stunning.

Our overall experience with TravelTriangle was excellent. The entire trip was seamless and our requirements had been taken care of well throughout the trip. We got what we wanted.

The budget was fairly reasonable, however, we were seeking something more comfortable in Pangong as we opted for the Deluxe package but still looking with the state of affairs and the latest demolition by the local administration, we had to adjust with that finally.

Sandeep’s excursion to ladakh with his friends is full of exciting memories and experiences that it tempts you to call your friends and plan a trip to Ladakh. You are only one step away from witnessing the mesmerizing beauty and striking off the unique experiences from your bucket list.

After making the journey all the way from Kerala, we hopped off our flight and made our way to the hotel. We were staying at the Hotel Le Grande In Ahmedabad which was right up our alley. We checked into our room was are spotlessly clean and comfortable. After unwinding for a but, it was time to head out and see the best of Ahmedabad.

Our first stop was the Akshardham Temple where we were left speechless by the grandeur and beauty of it all. After spending some time here, we were on our way again to visit the Adalaj Stepwell which has many stories attached to it. The temperature inside is said to be 6 degrees cooler than the inside because of the architecture. Certainly one of the most interesting places to visit in Ahmedabad. Later in the day, we also visited the famous Sabarmati Ashram to spend some time in solace. And to end an already eventful day, we visited some of the local markets and riverfront park as well.

2. Bhuj: Enjoying The Scenic Drive

After spending a day in Ahmedabad it was time to pack our bags because the next destination on our list was Bhuj. And my oh my, the drive was simply beautiful. We crossed some colourful mustard and salt fields on the way and made sure to capture some pictures as well. We also stopped by some of the Jain Temples on the way to collect out blessing.

We checked into our hotel, Treetop Residency to relax for a bit. After a while, we decided to head out and visit some of the tourist attractions in Bhuj. We stopped at the Prag Mahal and Aina Mahal both truly spectacular displays or architecture. We had a wonderful evening and made the most of our time here. Soon, we headed back to our hotel to catch up on some sleep.

3. Bhuj: Up The Mountain We Go!

We woke up early in the morning, put on our shoes and made our way to Bhujiya Dungar which is located in the outskirts of the city. Today was all about trekking, so we geared up and start our way to the top. And while it was tiring, getting to the top was totally worth it, the view was simply amazing. This is one the best things to do in Ahmedabad and us imply exhilarating.

Next up, we visit the Vijay Vilas Palace which is set by the Mandvi Beach. After exploring the palace we head to the beach to relax for some time. We also enjoyed a traditional Gujaarti thali which just finger licking good!

4. Kutch: The ‘Bhunga’ Experience


head to Kutch

our trip were spent in the beautiful Kutch

mesmerizing beauty of Kutch

best experience to stay at Kutch

The last two days of our trip were spent in the beautiful Kutch. The first place on our Rann of Kutch travel itinerary was Kalo Dungar which is a black hill and known to be the highest point of view in Kutch. We were lost in the mesmerizing and panoramic views of the city from up there. Later we checked into our hotel named Gateway to Rann. This was a different and unique stay because rooms were actually Bhungas which is a traditional circular house in Kutch.

After checking in, we head out again to get a glimpse into the Rann Utsav festival that was being celebrated. Our driver was so helpful and even told us about some of his experiences. We shopped, enjoyed the sunset and indulged in some delicious street food. The entire atmosphere was so vibrant and welcoming, we felt truly amazed!

The next day, we were to return home and so we made our way back to Ahmedabad where we were to catch out flight. On the way we made one last stop in Bhuj to visit the Kutch Museum and for the last time, indulge in some tempting Gujarati street food. All in all, we had an amazing time and a memorable Rann of Kutch travel experience.

During our first day in Ahmedabad, we visited some of the local markets of the city. You will find plenty of traditional items in the markets along with antique jewelry and Patola Sarees. Oh, and of course, how can I forget Shopping Mela at Rann Utsav. Colorful stalls and shops line the streets selling little trinkets and beautifully designed jewelry.

Oh, if you plan to take a trip to Ahmedabad and Rann of Kutch, make sure to indulge in some of the local delicacies. The traditional Gujarati Thali is a must and something I wouldn’t miss out on! Everywhere you go, you will find plenty of street food vendors selling Khaman, khandvi and much more. Stop for a bite!

As we covered at three destinations during out trip, we stayed at three different hotels. In Ahmedabad we stayed at Hotel Le Grande In Ahmedabad. We enjoyed our experience here and the rooms were very comfortable. In Bhuj, we stayed at the Treetop Residency. We feel like the services here could have been better. Nevertheless, we made the best of the situation. Onto our last destination, we stayed at the Gateway to Rann which has to be the best experience so far. We stayed in a Bhunga which looked small from the outside byut was spacious and well-equipped inside. We would definitely recommend this hotel to those planning a stay in Kutch.

  • Make sure to carry your sports shoes if you want to go trekking
  • Plan your trip around the Rann Utsav festival, you will surely enjoy
  • Definitely get a taste of the local food delicacies

What can I say, it was amazing! I have been following TravelTriangle for quite some time now. When my sister and I approached them, they gave us plenty of options to choose from and let us customize our package as well. All the bookings were handled well and we didn’t face any hiccups at all!

There certainly is something about the beauty of Kutch that draws travelers from different parts of the country. And how can we miss the delicious food and shopping experience in Ahmedabad. Rann Utsav has to be one of the biggest celebrations of the city with vibrant stalls lining up the streets. If you too want to have the best Rann of Kutch travel experiences, plan your trip to Ahmedabad with TravelTriangle.

Statue Of Liberty In 2019: Why Is It A Site Worth Beholding Once In Your Lifetime?

“The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World” is a gift that the French gave the Americans for their friendship. A magnificent structure, neoclassical in style, is located on Liberty Island in New York Harbour, a part of New York City. Made of copper, it was designed by Frederic Auguste Bartholdi – a French sculptor.

Gustave Eiffel built the metal framework. Some of it also constitutes wrought iron, steel, and gold. It was after knowing the ideals shared by Edouard Rene de Laboulaye (French politician and law professor) regarding U.S and France that Bartholdi came up with the idea and inspiration for building the statue. Bartholdi began the work in the early 1870s.

 Statue Of Liberty

The National Park Service has maintained the statue since 1933 after being administered in 1901 by the United States Lighthouse Board. The Department of War took up this job after. The arm that bore the torch was put up for display at several expositions before it was placed in its current position. To know about the Statue of Liberty history, it is important to go through all the crucial chronicles.

In 1876, it was exhibited in Philadelphia at the Centennial Exposition as well as Manhattan at the Madison Square Garden for six years, from 1876 to 1882. Hosted by the president, Grover Cleveland, New York City’s first ticker-tape parade was organized to celebrate the completion of the statue.

The statue had a dull copper color at the start, but over the years it got covered with patina and now has a sea-green color. Although money was dished out to fix this, it was never really spent as it was inferred that it looks even more beautiful and that the patina doesn’t really pose any danger to the strength of the statue.

Widely worshipped by emancipated slaves in ancient Rome, the goddess of freedom, Liberta, was an important female icon that represented ideals of Liberty in America. Her picture was often used as an allegory by artists in the 18th and 19th centuries. One such example of this is the painting ‘Liberty Leading People’ by Eugene Delacroix. While the depiction of Liberty in the painting was that of a rather aggressive persona, Bartholdi opted for a more calm appearance.

He sculpted a torch as a symbol of progress. Instead of a pileus (shown in the painting), Bartholdi’s Liberty wears a crown and the seven rays forming an aureole around the crown and behind Liberty’s head is a depiction that is meant to exude the flourish of all the continents and the seven seas. The statue perhaps was meant to “enlighten the world”.

The Statue of Liberty is a significant monument in American culture. To answer the question, what does the Statue of Liberty represent, the statue symbolizes hope, progress and a promise of a better world governed by democratic principles of fraternity and liberty. A Greek immigrant said about the monument:

“I saw the Statue of Liberty. And I said to myself, “Lady, you’re such a beauty! [sic] You opened your arms and you get all the foreigners here. Give me a chance to prove that I am worth it, to do something, to be someone in America. And always that statue was on my mind.” These are some of the prominent Statue of Liberty facts, now let’s move on to the necessary details that you must know as a tourist.

Statue Of Liberty

The statue of Liberty is open to the general public and foreign tourists. It opens at 8:30 in the morning and closes at 4:00 in the afternoon. When getting inside the Statue of Liberty, you cannot enter the balcony in the torch, in the statue’s left hand for safety reasons.

To access the various levels in the statue, it is important to purchase a monument ticket. To get a ticket, you can either visit the website, or call 1 877 LADY TIX. You will have to purchase a different ticket if you want to access the level in the statue’s crown.

It doesn’t cost any money to enter the premises of the Statue of Liberty, although you will have to pay a fee for the ferry that will take you to the Liberty Island, which is the Statue of Liberty location.

People usually visit the monument in the months from June to September. The island remains closed on Christmas Day. You can call (212) 363 3200, the park’s information line if there’s anything more you want to know.

gorgeous views of the statue and the city

After you’ve arrived at Liberty State Park or Battery Park, buy your Statue of Liberty crown tickets at the spot for the Statue of Liberty ferry if you don’t already have e-tickets. After heading over to the security check, you most probably have to wait in line. The lines are really long, for obvious reasons, so make sure you leave early if you have other things to do in New York City.

Tickets for children between the ages 4 to 12 cost $5; for people over 62, it’s $10; and $12 for those aged 13 and above. After you have boarded the ferry, you will see that it has three levels. The top level is obviously the best since it offers the most gorgeous views of the statue and the city.

It’s always crowded, so if you want to have the best view, then try to arrive early. The second level has stands selling beverages and food. All three levels have standing and sitting spaces. Get off at Liberty Island or stay in if you want to get a tour of the illustrious Ellis Island as well. You can explore the Liberty Island on the way back.

Here is the interesting trivia about the world famous monument located in the United States of America that you should know.

  • The waistline of the Statue of Liberty is 35 foot.
  • The Statue of Liberty height from the bottom to the tip of the torch is 305 ft and 6 inches.
  • The Statue of Liberty weighs is 225 tons.
