Finally when I m back from Andaman.. A gem in the middle of the Ocean gives an immediate air of calm.
The Andaman and Nicobar Islands is truly a refreshing getaway to peace, courtesy to its pristine natural attractions, don’t forget the history of the island too. The laid-back pace of the islands allows time to relax completely, wander the secluded beaches and take lots of boating tours. There is so much more to do here; adventure sports, water activities, activities for the nature lovers, sightseeing spots and discovering a whole lot of colourful, enchanting water life. There are two ways to get to the Andaman Island – by air and sea. If time is not of essence, take a passenger ship to Port Blair from Chennai, Vizag or Kolkata (takes 56 to 66 hours).
If a week’s trip is the plan, direct flights are also available from Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and Kolkata to Veer Savarkar International Airport, Port Blair, From here options to explore are enormous and refreshing..
The best piece of history on the Andamans is the Cellular Jail barely 15 minutes from the airport. Known as Kalapani for the terror it caused on people lodged here, the jail chosen by the British to contain freedom fighters from late 1890s tells the tale of struggle for Independence. Avail the service of a guide, who will share every trivia there is on the Kalapani. A light and sound display thrice every evening – narrates the sacrifices of our freedom fighters.

Samudrika, Anthropological and Kalapani are the most informative of them. Now just relax for the next day to bring in more adventure.
