An hour’s drive from Port Blair takes you to a lovely place called Chidya Tapu, which is famous for two things – The Sunset Point and the species of birds.
Our Day 5 was a leisurely one. We woke up late, had early lunch by 12.30 and left for Chidya Tapu. Our Driver, Dilip was very sober, kind and a very patient person. He was not like the usual drivers who are always fussy, pestering and reluctant to move around like we want. A good driver is a boon especially to tourists, who have all the time in the world in their hands, and have the enthusiasm to see all the places in their itinerary. He never complained, and always was eager to take us to wherever we asked for.
Port Blair is by far, a very green place, especially, when you go beyond Port Blair, you will find greenery in the hinterland everywhere. Our journey to Chidya Tapu was also picturesque and beautiful. We reached Chidya Tapu by 02.00 PM and lazed around the beach and soaked ourselves in the serenity around us. Had some Dal Mund with generous filling of puffed rice, lintels, peanuts, onions bathed in lemon juice from a snack seller. It was heavenly.
