tourism.andaman.nic.in provides an insight into what the islands offer

There’s beauty all around in Andaman and Nicobar: on land, under water and in the monuments that tell you fascinating stories about its history. Although the region is famous mostly for its spectacular islands, there’s a lot more to see and do.

And, a good place to discover these options is tourism.andaman.nic.in. Their home page is refreshingly clear-cut and offers you information on tourist destinations, accommodation, cuisines, travel tips, a map of the area and photo and video galleries. By clicking on the Tourist Spot link, you get a list of categories worth exploring, including museums, picnic spots and specific places of interest with a short summary of each.

Since the website’s layout is uncluttered, navigation is simple and it’s easy for visitors to draw up quick lists of sights to see.

There’s information on the background of each museum and national monument and also details on entry fee and show timings.

Travel tips

Miscellaneous tips, dos and don’ts for first-time tourists, details on transport and entry formalities are available in the Travel Tips section.

While you might not be interested in knowing what the Mean Relative Humidity at Port Blair was in 1999, you should still go to the General Information link to check out details about its climate and take pleasure in knowing that their population is low enough to put the Emerald Islands on top of the list of best getaways.
