It is believed that travel and change of place impart new vigor to your mind. Sometimes, a break from your routine is everything you need. I wanted a break from my busy schedule and wanted to escape the hustle and bustle of the city that is when I decided to plan a trip to Andaman islands. I wanted a hassle free vacation so I started searching for travel companies online and my search ended when I found Andaman Island travels.
I booked a 6 nights and 7 days tour with them and I am glad I did because they did not give us a single chance to complain.
Reaching Andaman :
By air : There are direct flights to Port Blair from Delhi,Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and Bangalore. I had a direct flight from Kolkata to Port Blair.
Day 1 : Port Blair
Our trip started from Port Blair airport. Port Blair for centuries has been synonyms to Kala Pani, thanks to the British Raj. Kala Pani, also known as the Cellular Jail,was started by the Britishers to punish freedom fighters who raised their voice for the desire of an Independent Nation. Cellular Jail is the most visited place in Port Blair. We visited Cellular Jail, several museums like the Anthropological museum, Fishery museum, Chatam saw mill. In the evening we visited Corbyn's Cove beach. This is the only beach in Port Blair and is perfect for spending a lazy evening strolling near the beach. One can indulge in activity like Jet Ski or can simply sip some hot chai and enjoy the waves. We ended our Day 1 by watching the Light and Sound show at Cellular Jail. This show will definitely bring shivers down your spine. One gets to hear the painful stories of the atrocities that were committed on the prisoners.
