BLUE WATERS, SERENE ISLANDS, not so extinct and preserved TRIBES and the wonderful SEA LIFE, all under the same roof - INDIA!
Choosing the Andaman Islands as our next destination was a very impressive decision we made, compared to the other places we have visited till now. Noticeably, majority of us are always attracted to the fancy destinations abroad. We fail to realize that we have our very own beauty waiting for it to be explored by its own people.
The next thought was what all can we explore in just 8 days! Andaman comprises of 325 islands which are rich in coral and marine life. Majority of these are remote, not open to tourists and hence extremely unexplored unless you are in the Navy or a marine biologist or a researcher. To visit these, one should be privileged with a long holiday to cherish them. Additionally, travelling is not easy in Andaman. One needs to rely on convoys, ferries and the unexpected climatic situations. We had to pick and choose the ones which can be easily accessible and hence to be covered as part of our first visit.
You will find all kinds of backpacking and luxurious stay options here. Majority of the food ingredients are imported on this island and hence on the expensive side.
So this is what we experienced what I now call 'Heaven' and I keep wondering how Nicobar would be!!
