Famous among the travelers for its gorgeous beaches, underwater wonders and primeval location in the middle of nowhere, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands are still the ideal place to get away from it all. The Andaman Islands form an archipelago in the Bay of Bengal between India, to the west, and Myanmar, to the north and east. Most are part of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands Union Territory of India, while a small number in the north of the archipelago, including the Coco Islands, belong to Myanmar. The island population is a mix of south Indian and Southeast Asian settlers. The most widely spoken language on the islands is Bengali followed by Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. The only commercial airport in the islands is Veer Savarkar International Airport in Port Blair which is under the control of the Indian Navy. Due to the length of the routes and the small number of airlines flying to the islands, fares have traditionally been relatively expensive although cheaper for locals than visitors. Ship service is also available from Chennai, Visakhapatnam and Kolkata. The journey requires three days and two nights and depends on weather.
