20 Photos That Will Make You Feel Seychelles is a Paradise on Earth


Ed and I recently visited a paradise... aka the Seychelles!

It was a holiday trip that we spontaneously decided to take. Nevertheless, it turned out to be epic! Except for a few one-minute long rain showers and gloomy skies during sunset, everything that was instantly planned turned out well.

I don't know about you, but I bet nothing can go wrong in this dreamy tropical destination off the coast of East Africa.

Given only 48 hours, we opted to stay in Mahe - the largest island in the archipelago where Seychelles International Airport is located. We didn't have the time to visit the famous islands La Digue and Praslin, and definitely don't have the funds for Desroches island - where Prince William and Kate spent their honeymoon. 

However, Mahe island made us feel lucky enough! Here are 20 photos that will make you feel Seychelles is indeed a paradise on earth:

Did I just convince you to visit Seychelles? I'll be sharing our randomly-made itinerary, trip expenses, and some travel tips soon. 

Here's something to look forward to: We went to Seychelles on a budget! Yes, it is possible in this luxury destination! We stayed in a guesthouse (more like an airbnb), took the public bus, and found where the locals eat! 

Stay tuned! :)
