I would like to share a small memory of our recent trip to Amandan & Nicobar Island . Our original plan was to go to Bali but as the fear for Corona Virus was growing we decided to skip that idea and amended our travel plans for Amdaman & Nicobar.
The fascination to see pristine beaches with turquoise water has always been on the charts and fulfilling that curiosity by this trip was a great rejuvenating experience. We decided early march as the temperature seemed to be conducive and we wanted to avoid the huge season crowd. Base on recommendation, we decided to include Port Blair, Havelock Island and Neil Island in the itinerary. However, It was still a uphill task to make a traveling decision amidst the global COVID crisis as all our colleagues and family members were not if favor for this trip. Although, amidst the growing concerns we had done our thorough preparation taking all necessary precaution . We were extremely careful while at the airport as that was one of the key area for contraction of virus. We started our journey late night on 7th March from Mumbai and reached Port Blair at around 9 am next morning. As there are no direct flights from Mumbai we had to take a connecting flight from Chennai.
The bird's eye view of the island while landing will gear u up and refresh you from your tiring layover. Port Blair has a small airport but it took some time for us to get out as the screening procedures for COVID 19 was on for all foreign arrivals and passengers with traveling history.
- As the airport is at Port Blair, try making the first and the last day there as it will save time.
- If you are a traveling couple it is advised to do prior planning and booking for your trip including hotel, cab, ferry and accommodation . This will avoid last minute hassle and reduce stress. Travel triangle team was very helpful and supportive.
- As its a beach destination please ensure to carry essentials like sun's cream, cap and shades etc to avoid tanning.
