Some trips we go to see the places, some trips we go to feel the adventure, some trips we go to relax etc. etc….So every trip have some expectations, some plan, some goals in mind but this was really a great experience for me and my wife where we went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I have already seen GOA, almost all the places so nothing new for me…we choose this place because she wanted to visit Goa this time. “Goa…The official party capital of India” is my favorite place in India where fun never stops. Its offering everything from beach side bliss to nightlife thrills including beautiful villages, delicious food, happy people, amazing parties and the most important is magical vibes which I can’t explain.

It’s bad manner to keep a vacation waiting!

We feel that the pleasure of traveling is not only limited to the time we spend on the trip itself but it is extremely important and enjoyable the sooner, namely the time before the trip itself, in which we plan, study the destination, its history, but also the after is wonderful because we feel richer after a trip and the memories we bring are extremely valuable.

Day-1 | 27th Nov | Arriving in Goa

We boarded the flight from Delhi at 10:55 AM which was due at Goa around 1:40 PM and we finally landed at Goa around 01:50 PM. Here we are in Goa!! Finally!! We came outside of the airport after collecting our luggage and hired a cab from the prepaid taxi stand at a cost of Rs 1300/ for Calangute. The prepaid taxi charges are very high in goa. 😊

PSX_20191209_122558

We had lunch on our way to Hotel, finally we checked in to our hotel “SinQ Signature” at Calangute around 3:45 PM. The hotel is located in the prime area which makes it convenient to visit places and save time. The rooms were very clean, good food, also the staff was very helpful and polite, it was worth it.

The plan was to take the two-wheeler from this point and use for rest of the journey. After settling down our luggage in the room, we took a rental vehicle which can be arranged by hotel for 250 per day for moped then we moved to “Chapora Fort” as per our plan.

And so, the adventure begins.

Located at roughly 10 km from Calangute. Chapora fort is a perfect vintage point for gazing at the sea as the waves gently nudge the shore in silent harmony. This is one of my favorite places in Goa for exploration and sightseeing, also offers amazing views for photography. The view of the palm trees, the extensive beach, and the distant horizon look magnificent. Towards the northern side of the cliff lay the beautiful Vagator beach. We reached at fort during the sunset, so we did not have any chance to take much photographs. As we approached the end of a cliff the view was spectacular with strong wind blowing across making us feel lot more comfortable even though sun was out. My feet were eager to touch the sand so after spending around 1 hour we moved to Vagator Beach even though we knew that it is not a one-hour place. In my last visit of goa with friends, we visited this place two times just to click the pictures, we also relive the “Dil Chahta Hai” moment.

PICNIC_20191205_201230674-01

To be very frank Vagator beach is not so beautiful like the Baga and other beaches, mainly owing to the color of the sand. This beach was very clean and with very less crowded in evening, this place is not for the people who are in Goa for the beach parties but definitely a heaven for the peace lovers that means we cannot have everything together. There was a resort left behind this beach, so we decided to chill out here. It was great experience to have candle light dinner in front of us a series of beautiful rock formations positioned to kiss the lashing waves creating a beautiful sound and sight. There is nothing more important than food in Goa, but we are vegetarian, so we have very limited option to choose that’s how we have completed our first day.

Goa is all about having fun with your friends & special one and if you aren’t chilling, you aren’t living it out loud enough!

IMG_20191127_224202-02

After having a good time at Vagatore we moved on to visit Baga and settled in one of the shacks on Baga beach…It was a cool breeze, Sound of waves, some disco music. It was an awesome moment where we relaxed without doing anything just waiting for our special day i.e. 28th Nov. We spent the whole night just chilling at beach with some meaningful discussion about life 😊 and then started back to hotel at 2 O’clock. The next day we were scheduled to first cover Parra.

Day-2 | 28th Nov | Give Life a meaning

I had plan of early morning beach photography. But after sleeping so late, we woke up at 10 am… Started feeling so hungry…Got ready soon and moved to “Thalassa” for the brunch via Parra. Parra is famous for the beautiful lane of Coconut tree we clicked some pictures here and reached to “Thalassa” we ordered white sauce pasta, garlic bread and beer, definitely one of the best places of goa to visit. Great ambience… international cuisines. live music with serene beauty of sunset- that’s Thalassa for you.

The best kind of therapy is Beach Therapy.

After the completion of brunch, we moved to Morjjm beach. Morjim Beach is definitely one of the best and most tranquil beaches of Goa. It is quiet & peaceful away from crowded Calangute and Baga beaches. Morjim is famous as the nesting ground of the endangered Olive Ridley Turtle. There are many foreign tourists here. Most of them are from Russia, which is why, Morjim beach is often referred to as “Little Russia”. We settled on a beach side shack with child beer.

DSC_0006-01

We spent the evening by sea bathing and chilling out on the beach in front of our shack. Sunset was so beautiful on this beach. You take one deep breath, closes your eyes feeling the vast & mighty sea from your lower body & at the same time the setting sun blesses you with its diminishing rays soaking your upper body meanwhile perceiving the fact that we humans are merely slaves against this magisterial nature, after spending a quality time here we went to our hotel.

We were born to be real, not perfect.

IMG_20191128_163123-01 1

After freshening up in hotel, we got ready for the casino. A goa trip without visit to Casinos is always incomplete, I went to Big Daddy casino which is the newest and largest casino in town, the day we went was little crowdy. We pay around 5k for the entry and got chips worth 3000 INR with complimentary drinks and food. Big Daddy Casino is a ship that boasts of four floors – having a live bar and a never-ending stream of people from across the world crowding around the Baccarat, roulette, Mini Flush, Poker and other tables – trying a hand at their luck, trying to win against the house. We tried Roulette and Wheel, where your favorite number could make you win! Place your bet on one of the number/signs. After everyone has placed their bets, the dealer spins the wheel and the number it lands on wins the round. We won around 2000 rupees of chips later I converted that chips into cash.

PhotoGrid_1578052766434

This was our first time at the casino and had real good fun time here with many live shows and different games. I totally loved the experience. We spent like about 4 hours and headed back to stay to get some sleep and be ready to roam on the streets. It was the perfect end to our special day.

Day-3 | 29th Nov | Goa beyond beaches!

We woke up late in the morning and headed towards the Aguada Fort, we were about to meet its destination got messy with the crowd out there. Aguada Fort is one of the most well-preserved Portuguese monuments in Goa. The fort was built to prevent the attacks on Old Goa by the Dutch and Marathas. Today, the fort is a major tourist attraction of Goa. The views from this fort are immensely beautiful. Fort Aguada Light House adds to the beauty and charm of the fort. This is one of the oldest and first ever lighthouse in Asia, which was equipped with ammunition, rooms and barracks.

Life is short, enjoy the little things.

It was very sultriness day and Aguada Fort was crowded with people it was tough getting a free spot in the fort to stand and escape with sunlight and also finding the spot to take a picture was very difficult. We have spent around 45 min in the fort clicked some pictures and went towards the MOG. The museum of Goa is located in the middle of a low-key industrial estate, all quite odd! This place is more a modern art gallery than a museum. The Museum shows the finest contemporary art from around the world and from Goa. Its Little lonely place not crowded at all. The best part is the outdoor area, very well made. The tickets cost Rs 150/. Spent a couple of hours at the museum, it was interesting to see how they have used waste material and discarded items to create all the exhibits.

IMG_20191129_154600-02

Like my last day, I thought to spend the sunset and night time on a beach, so I drove towards the Calangute Beach. Which was just 7 kms away from the MOG. We roam around the beach, had some good food and drink. We stayed till 9 o’clock and started back to hotel. In the way of returning, we bought some drinks for rest of days. we bought beers, brandy, wine and famous cashew fenny. It is one of those must-do things when you visit Goa. Fenny is a favorite local/ tradition drink in Goa. It’s made either from cashew or coconut palm but cashew fenny is more popular. Fenny is clear, twice distilled liquor that is definitely more potent with 43 – 45% alcohol content.

img_20191129_192708-01.jpeg

Then after a long & busy day we reached hotel. Once we settled down in the room, we quickly hit the pool to chill our self while guzzling down some beers. We had our dinner at our hotel room with famous fenny. This local spirit has an intense smell and a strong aftertaste but is worth a try.

During the dinner, we discussed next day plan whether we should go for “Doodh Sagar” or cover sports activity. In the mid night, we decided to go for sports activity. I was not aware that I shortlisted Malvan beach which is around 100 km away from Goa and more than 3-hour journey via NH 66. Since the plan was finalized just a day before the travel date, we only confirmed the booking and rest was left for trip to follow.

Day-4 | 30th Nov | Go wild for a while

It was around 7:30 am when we left our hotel for the nodal point where cab was waiting for us. We boarded our cab in which two guys had already sited. Our first destination was Mandrem where we had to pick one more couple. We picked them, now we were a team of six people and finally we moved toward Malvan beach.

Malvan is a town in Sindhudurg District, Maharashtra. It is known as Sindhudurg Fort (350-year-old ancient fortress built by Chhatrapati Shivaji in 1664), Malvani cuisine (Fish curry and Solkadi), Alphonso – Mango and local food. Malvan is considered as heaven for the non-vegetarians especially seafood lovers. Tourists get attracted towards Malvan because of warm white sand, clean and beautiful beaches, Fort, lovely nature, and very less crowd. Our main intention to visit this place because of parasailing but it’s also famous for others sport activity like Snorkeling and scuba diving.

Fill your life with experiences, not thing. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.

we reached at Malvan beach around 11:20 AM. It was water sports time. First, we went for water sports. we were enjoyed almost every water sports activity included banana ride, bumpy ride, jet ski ride, boat ride and scuba diving but the most beautiful part is parasailing. somehow, they charge you extra 150 if you want to have a dip in water while doing parasailing but It was a great fun really. To satisfy the adventure junkie in you, it doesn’t get grander than parasailing in Goa.

IMG_0654-01-01-01

It’s our second time with scuba diving. We had already experienced in Andaman, so we were not scared at all. 40-50 feet under the water all you hear is the bubbling sound of the water that your breathing causes, and within an instance you’re away from the demanding city life and among the creatures that don’t speak and nor can you, all you do is see the underwater view but one thing that I want to say that standard are very low in comparison of Andaman also there was no corals but it was good for first timer. After doing all the Water sports we went for the lunch. After feeding our hungry souls we headed back to our hotel, we had gossips in cab regarding the best experiences of the place/activity and had exchange photos/videos of each other’s. However, the disappointment was that we have wasted almost day just because of long road journey.

If you do not leave your worries behind while travelling, the fun will definitely leave you.

Then after a long & busy day we reached hotel at 7:50 PM. By 9:00 PM, got ready for night party and the plan was to get in to the Titto’s club and enjoy rest of the night. This Titto’s club is one of the famous clubs on entire Goa and its right near the Baga beach. Somehow, we changed the plan and finally we went to “Sinq NighClub”.

Sinq-Beach-Club-2

Goa known for beaches n parties …. This place was perfect place for party animals, the atmosphere here was amazing as this was Saturday night. Great music, food and amazing people a perfect way to unwind the day. Nicely built place… elite crowd, Cheap entry and free booze. It was better than Titto’s and mambos which are much more crowdy and mostly play typical songs. Me & my wife went around 10 am and were there till 2 am. we went into the room and quickly went into deep sleep. Our next day plan was to cover old Goa.

Day-5 | 1st Dec | A Day in South Goa

Again, woke up lazily and we started driving for Old Goa…It was a beautiful drive of 20 KM. Reached there by 3 pm. Old Goa has many churches adjacent to each other at close distance, so we went on a spree to visit as many as possible in due time. There are few great churches built on 16’th Century by Portuguese. This was their capital, and this was the place where early churches built for the first time in India. In Basilica of Bom Jesus Church you can find a body of Francis Xavier that was kept from 1552. Still the body have not decomposed, and people say the nails grow till today. This place was hugely crowded, lot of prayers were going on.

PSX_20191209_081014

Our next stop was Se Cathedral. One of the highlights of Goa is Old Goa, a relic of Old Portuguese culture and buildings. Most notable among them is the Se Cathedral, the largest church in Asia. The church contains the infamous Golden Bell, which is considered the largest church bell in the world.

Wherever you go, go with all your heart.

Enjoyed the churches and without wasting much time, we directly headed to Dona Paula for sunset view. Now I cannot express it more wordily but the sunset experience here was the most amazing one I had ever witnessed. This is that kind of time where your ambiance provokes you to stare the endless horizon, feeling how majestic nature can be, thinking about how frivolous life is & realizing that eternity is just a word in a man-made dictionary because nothing is forever.

PSX_20191202_200936

Oh yes, how can I miss the Bollywood value of this place! This is the place where famous scenes of the movie “Singham” and “Ek Duje ke liye” was shot. One can witness lots of nimbupani, tea stalls are named as Singham.

While returning from south goa, we have done shopping. We bought some cashew, chocolates and traditional Goan sweets like Dodol & Pinag for our friends and family. Goan cashew nuts are very famous and it’s an integral part of Goan identity. The cashew shops in Panjim were charging about 300-350 Rupees for half k.g of the best quality. Cashew in its various forms like Cashew with its peel on, salted cashew, masala cashew is the most popular one.

Sky above,Sand below,Peace within!

The night after was our last in Goa. We guzzled down couple of beers before dinner & went into deep thinking about the last few days spent here, reaching as far as the horizon of our wisdom to garner our knowledge & widen our perception towards this world.

Day-6 | 2nd Dec | That Goodbye Moment

It was our last day at this tropical paradise and our return flights were scheduled at around 3 in the afternoon. Early morning, we went for the Calangute beach, this is the last beach to end our trip. Nothing can be more relaxing and refreshing than early morning beach. It just washes out all the negative things from the mind. This is the most divine feeling to be wherever I am in any of the beach places. This place was just a walk away from our stay, yet we came here on our last day of trip. This is the place where you can see huge Indian crowd…You hardly see foreigners here.

We jumped into the water and started enjoying beach vibes. Then after here we went for brunch at a nearby restaurant before kicking for hotel. The restaurant serves some nice set breakfast. There are specific combinations based on respective country’s ideal breakfast. Such as American breakfast with cereal & milk. English breakfast with bread & eggs. Etc.

GoPicnic-191210200254-01

After completing our brunch, we reached hotel. Picked up all bags and booked Cab for the Airport. it’s time to say good bye. Started our return journey by 1:00 PM to catch the flight but due to some road traffic we reached at Airport only 35 min before of departure time and counter was almost closed but somehow, i arranged the boarding passes. The only regret which I have had that by mistake I putted liquor in my handbag instead of luggage which I had to dump as my luggage was already booked and loaded over plane ☹

Life is a journey not a destination.

Lastly our 5 days journey of tropical escape came to an end. Once I inside the airport for boarding, I started thinking about when I will visit here again to explore more & the places of south Goa which I missed this time. The sand from the beaches that I visited was no more on my feet, but I guess it will never leave my soul.

The holiday to Andaman & Nicobar Islands is a once in a lifetime experience. Andaman & Nicobar is full of amazing natural beauty and stunning marine life. I am eager to share my experience and thoughts about this lovely place. My experience may help others to plan a better trip and help them to change their view to look at Andaman island as “Kaala-Pani”.

The Andaman Islands are a group of islands in the Bay of Bengal and a Union Territory of India. There are total 572 islands but inhabited islands are 38. The name of the island has always been ‘Andaman’ and might represent Handuman, the Malay form of Hanuman. The capital of Andaman Island is Port Blair.

 Day-1: Delhi – Port Blair

Our journey begins on 24th February 2018 with a lot of enthusiasm. We started from Delhi to Port Blair by Spice Jet Airways at 10:30 AM. It was the first flight journey for my wife, and she was very thrilled. After 4 hour journey via Kolkata we landed in port Blair at 2:30 PM. Port Blair is the entry point to the Andaman and Nicobar Island. During our flight, we witnessed some beautiful scattered islands. This view is never to be missed. Simply amazing.

ABD

We were welcomed by our Hotel’s Owner, Mr. Nasir from Andaman. After taking rest for a while, we decided to visit the Cellular Jail. It’s best way to see the past chapters of our Indian history. We must know the value of our freedom. You need at least 2-3 hours to view the entire jail. Light and sound show held in evening was stunning.  I was choked after hearing the history of Jail. That’s when I got to know why people call this jail as “Kaala-Pani”.

IMG_3154

After visiting cellular jail, we went for our dinner at Annapurna restaurant (Near Rajiv Gandhi Sports complex) which is one of the best vegetarian restaurant in Port Blair. Rajiv Gandhi Sports complex is the most popular place to hang out in Port Blair.

Day-2: Ross Island

We woke up early and were surprised by the weather condition. Average sunrise timing in Andaman is 5 AM and sunset by 5 PM.

ice_2018-02-28-11-05-26-194 (2)

After the breakfast, we went to Ross Island.  It’s a 10 min boat ride from the jetty to the Island. This Island is the erstwhile capital of Port Blair during the British regime, presently it is only a place of old ruined houses. It is very well maintained by the navy and local people. There were lots of ruin buildings on the island that were made by trees + roots + ruin building, in a very interesting form. It’s Heaven for photographer. To see complete island you need to walk a lot, so better to carry water and some snacks. There is small beach which is completely destroyed by 2004 Tsunami and you can see that. We spent nearly 3 hours on the island and took the same boat to return to the jetty.

ice_2018-03-11-13-18-10-934

After returning from the Ross Island we were ready to go for Neil Island, It is 40 km away from port Blair.

We checked out the hotel at 1:30 PM. The Hotel was very near to Phoenix Bay Jetty (port). Our ship named “Makruzz” was waiting for us. It was our first ship journey. Once the ship got sailing in the sea, we went on the deck. Open sea view was amazing. After 2 hours of a royal  journey, we reached Neil Island.

Our Tourist guide “Vishwajeet” was waiting for us on the jetty. He is such a fantastic human being. Our hotel was not booked in Neil Island and he helped us a lot to search the hotel and he also arranged the scooty for us.

DSC_0203

Neil Island is one of the smaller inhabited islands in Ritchie’s archipelago. The west side of the island has a glorious view of the open seas and setting of the sun. Here, the sandy beach drops into the coastline gradually, allowing picturesque vistas. Neil has three beaches Bharatpur beach, Sitapur beach (Sunrise Point), and the next point is Lakshmanpur beach

In The evening we went to Laxmanpur Beach, it’s also known as sunset point. It is a great spot for shutterbugs. In the evening it was filled with tourists to come to see the sunset.

 Day-3: Neil Island

The next day we woke up early, got ready by 4 am and reached Sitapur beach to see sunrise. This is not as beautiful as other beaches of Andaman. It’s mainly popular for sunrise view and also it’s good for a walk otherwise, there’s nothing that you would miss in case you don’t visit this beach.

DSC_0176

After that we moved to see Natural Bridge where we did lots of photography. Nature has blessed Neil Island with amazing rock formation which has given the island a reason for tourists to visit and remember.

IMG_3236

Our next destination is Bharatpur. The beach is very beautiful. The water has very beautiful shades. There are beautiful fishes & corals inside the water. This beach is very near to Neil Island jetty. You can enjoy shopping in local stalls. Also food, coconut water, etc. This beach offers most of the water activities like jet ski, Glass bottom boat ride etc. We were only chilling at the sea shore here and didn’t take to do water sports activities.

 Day- 4 : Havelock Island

Havelock Island is very small in size with a very less population. Havelock Island provides idyllic resort in the lap of virgin beach and an unpolluted environment. We decided to roam around and explore the whole island so we rented an Activa scooty to roam on the island. We moved to the “Eldorado Resort” which is approx 3 km away from the jetty. Eldorado is a sea facing resort that is completely surrounded by tall coconut trees and green garden. Night bar is in the middle of the premise. Our private cottage was close to the beach. Beach is not at all good for swimming but you can relax on the wooden benches. We took rest in resort till 3.30 PM and then we started for a very romantic and famous Radhanagar Beach.

We at Radhanagar Beach – Perfect place

Radhanagar

Now let me introduce the main attraction here. Radhanagar Beach is one of the largest beaches in India. It is lonely, very clean, silver sand and breathtakingly beautiful. Obviously, this beach gets crowded but don’t worry, it’s huge you will definitely find big empty spaces if you keep going ahead. Radhanagar Beach or Beach number 7 is on the west side of the island and you will need to reach this by a 30-minute scooty ride.

It has been ranked Asia’s 7th most beautiful beach. It was very difficult to stop ourselves from entering in the blue water. We did photography here. After spending a long time, we witnessed the very romantic sunset from the beach. A perfect place for Honeymoon!!! We enjoyed till sunset and then we preferred to go back in resort.

Scuba Diving – Amazing Experience

Scuba Diving was something that I wanted to do and did not want to miss on the experience of diving in Havelock Island. It is by far the best experience I have had.

Diving in Havelock Island is a must do thing and “Eco Divers” is an extremely good dive centre. I booked my Scuba diving from Single window counter for morning slot, the cost of dive varies between INR 4000 – 6000 rupees/person. By 8 O’clock we reported as good students and they give us another quick detail about the program. We changed clothes in the dressing area and got ready for the diving experience. We earlier heard that this is not a great diving site, but it was actually a great location to experience diving in Havelock Island. The weather was clear and water was silent, all set up for the perfect diving experience. Initially, they explained basics i.e and how to breathe underwater and use the apparel. Some signs were also taught, at first we felt some trouble with breathing apparatus as it was really quite difficult to inhale & exhale through mouth but underwater I remembered only one thing that diver will take care of me and my wife.

photogrid_1523989198101.jpg

Once we got comfortable, we went underwater. It was like WOW experience, The visual was like Wonderland. Eagerly waiting for my return and my inputs about how was the diving experience. We really tried hard not to panic as we and our instructor went deeper and deeper underwater. I was slowly taken into much deeper areas and I saw lots of coral, varied kinds of fishes, don’t know the names but it was nice to be honest and I was ecstatic seeing the fishes swimming around me. The guide who accompanied me underwater pointed out to some of the fishes, trying to explain to me what that is, but you know I was just looking at it without understanding much what was he trying to convey.

DCIM100GEYESGEYE0028.

My diving took place for around 50-60 minutes and I was totally satisfied with the experience. Those minutes have been the most beautiful, most peaceful time of my life.

After the dive, we got our Video and Photographs. It’s surely a memory to take back after returning from Andamans. When we came back to resort I got the real meaning of the poetry from the movie “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara”.

पिघले नीलम सा बहता ये समां, नीली नीली सी खामोशियाँ ,

न कहीं है ज़मीन न कहीं आसमान, सरसराती हुई टहनियां पट्टियां,

कह रहीं है बस एक तुम हो यहाँ, बस मैं हूँ ,

मेरी सांसें हैं और मेरी धडकनें,ऐसी गहराइयाँ, ऐसी तन्हैयाँ,

और मैं … सिर्फ मैं.

अपने होने पर मुझको यकीन आ गया !

After scuba diving our plan was head to the Elephanta beach for water sport activity.

Elephanta Beach

Boats ply from left of Havelock Island jetty to the elephanta beach. They offered a package costing INR 950 per person that includes motor boat ride and a 10 minute complimentary session of snorkelling. The boats take about 20 minutes to reach Elephanta beach where we have about 3:30-4 hours of time to roam around and have to return back in the same ferry.

DSC_0498

It is better not to expect seeing any elephant here. This beach is usually visited by Indian families. There are a lot of water activities such as snorkel trips, banana boat rides, glass boat rides, etc., because of this beach is usually crowded. The beach has locker facility, some fruit shops, changing rooms and toilets. The beach is picturesque with lot of fallen trees in the background and you can get some excellent photographs.

DSC_0280

We enjoyed wave runner motor sport activities but we did not do snorkeling as we have already done scuba diving it’s like “A drop in the ocean”. We clicked a lot of picture here.

Kalapatthar Beach

The Kalapathar beach is situated on one corner of Havelock Island. The beach gets its name from the surrounding village, which is Kalapathar Village.

I came across this serene place when I was exploring the entire Havelock Island on my rented scooty. It was a long drive and road quality is not good at all. The road was very lonely and hardly we see a single bike or person on the way.  It was about 5 PM, when I had come to the Kalapathar side of the island. The sea opening out on one side and the tall trees by a hill on the other side. The kalapathar (black rocks) that decorate the coastline, silken smooth silver sands and the sheer solitude make this beach a great place to relax. I was very happy that no tourist infrastructure was available here and nature was left as is.

Today we tried few things first time in our life like scuba diving and other sport activities. It was a perfect day for our Honeymoon.

Day 5: Port Blair

The very next day morning, woke up by around 7. It was a humid morning. We walked around the resort and had a quick breakfast by 8 O’clock. Then time comes to leave the resort and ready to travel from Havelock to Port Blair via Green Ocean.

ice_2018-02-28-11-26-25-914 (2)

We reached pot Blair at 2 O’clock in the afternoon and take rest in our hotel. In the evening we roamed Port Blair and found that city is very clean and all the people here follow proper rules. We enjoyed our dinner at “New Lighthouse Restaurant”. A great place for seafood enthusiast, food is great and ambience is OK.

Day-6: Port Blair City Tour

Its last day of our trip. We woke up in late afternoon and start our journey in the evening. We were planned to cover all the major places within port Blair.

Samudrika (Marine Museum)

The museum is filled with specimens and history of Andaman. The museum shows a good collection of shells and corals with good explanations. It’s give us awareness on various aspects of oceanic environment and houses a vast collection of cells, corals and a few species of colorful fishes of the sea around the islands. Very well maintained too.

Skeleton

Anthropological Museum

The museum is in the city center. The Anthropological Museum is completely focusing on the tribes who lived Andaman. It’s well documented information Museum on Andaman culture and heritage. Maintenance needs to be looked into. Take your time in the museum. It is really worth it.

 Corbyn’s Cove beach

It is very crowded as Corbyn’s Cove beach is just 7 kilometers from the main town. This is a prominent sightseeing place in Port Blair with pleasant and lush green coconut palms. This island has so many beautiful places & beaches so this is okay… not so special. It’s Calm and clean place to spend some quality time with your partner. We had a great lovely time in the evening after spending 5 days in Andaman.

ice_2018-03-01-18-19-19-821

This was our last evening in Port Blair. Tonight we were planned our Dinner in a resto Bar near Airport. When we returned to our hotel, we were sad. Next morning we were supposed to leave such a beautiful place. We will really miss this place.

 Day-6: Port Blair–Delhi

It was such beautiful trip and such fond memories but every journey must come to an end. We checked out hotel room at 8.30 AM to catch our Indigo flight at 9.50 AM. We were not happy to check-in to the flight even though today is HOLI and we are missing the HOLI celebration but it’s not possible to extend our stay in Andaman.

We said Goodbye to Andaman !!!
