Where Is Andaman and Nicobar travel

As you can see Andaman and Nicobar is not a single island, but a group of 572 islands. This is why you have to use ferry, ship, ship or boat, again and again, to roam here.

One thing to note is that when we go to roam here, we only roam in Andaman because it is not allowed to visit Nicobar. Because there are tribal or tribal people who are protected by the government. They still live like primitive people today.

How Much Will The Trip Cost?

It is very difficult to tell this. Because it depends on a lot of factors –

  • Which is the hotel?
  • What are you eating and drinking?
  • What are the activities?
  • etc.

But if you talk about a normal middle-class family, which manages and plans its travel, then it is about Rs. Can do one week tour according to 25000 to 35000 per person, including air tickets and everything.

Book a travel package or manage it yourself? Travel Package Vs Self Manage

If you are not going in peak season then you can manage by yourself. You will find it comparatively cheaper and you will have the option to choose the right hotel, otherwise, the travel company has given it. This can be done in Peak season too, but it will not be easy to find the right hotel at the right price due to the rush.

Saintleigh tribals live on an island in Andaman and Nicobar, which are considered very dangerous. They have been living in isolation from the world for thousands of years and if someone tries to contact them, they kill them. It is strictly forbidden to go here!

How To Plan on Which Day To Go, How To Go?

What To Do With a Ferry / Cruise / Ship ticket?

Both public and private cruises operate in Andaman and Nicobar. The price of the government is almost half of the private, but it is difficult to get those tickets because there is no online booking, and it is difficult to get tickets after reaching them because all the tickets are already sold.

You have many options in private and you can book online.

Keep in mind that some cruise companies, such as the Makruzz Company, do not allow them to go to the deck of your ship… You have to travel in a closed space and you can walk to the side. You will not enjoy that much… Government ships and some private ships like Green Ocean allow you to go on deck and you will enjoy traveling on them.

Will There Have To Be a Vehicle To Roam Within The Island?

Yes, in many places you have an Innova or a big family, then you will have to do a Tempo Traveler. And here the taxi is not booked for the whole day, then spot boking is done, so it is expensive.

You can also roam by auto in Port Blair because both their availability and rate are very good, you will save a lot of money.

What Should Andaman Nicobar Take?

That is what you should take to the beaches.

  • Sleepers, crocs
  • Shorts and 3 / 4th pants,

Will Internet Work in Andaman and Nicobar?

As of May 2019, Internet connectivity in Andaman is very poor. But you can do important work by going to a cyber café. Hotel wi-fi can also work but you cannot depend too much on it.

Not having the Internet also means that you keep a hard copy of everything, or download it in mobile beforehand.

  • Tickets
  • Hotel bookings
  • Trip plan

How To Reach Andaman Nicobar?

There are two ways –

  • Cruise or ship
  • By flight

From my point of view, it is correct to go by flight. Because it saves a lot of your time. And since you have to go from one island to another by reaching there, you also get the pleasure of going on the ship.

We went to Port Blair by flight from Kolkata. To and fro Rs. 10,000 per person was engaged. You can also get a flight or cruise to here from Chennai.

Hindi, Bangla, Tamil, English.

If you know Hindi then there will be no problem. However, many people from West Bengal and Tamil Nadu are inhabited here, so if you know Bengali or Tamil you will feel like home.

During scuba diving, a guide is always with you and also gives you training before conducting. So do not be afraid in advance, most people do it.

  • Asthma

  • And much more that you are told before diving.
  • Small children are also forbidden. I think people above 10 years can do it.

How much will be charged – 3000 per person in May, if the rate changes in peak times, do not know?

What if I’m Not Fit To Go Scuba Diving?

Even then, you can do snorkeling (Rs. 1000 per person). This is done just below something from the sea surface and it is also very fun. But if you are doing scuba then do not do it and if you are not doing it then you will not leave it, no health conditions matter for this.
