Hi Panda

There are 2 options to go PortBlair,Either by flight or ship.Ship takes 50 Hr from chennai.Going by ship is very time taking and you may get sea sickness.Better to go by flight.You can get flight from Mumbai,Or even from pune you may get connecting flight.If you wana save some bucks then you can go to chennai by train and then from chennai to portblair by flight.

Dear Peace,

There are many places to visit in the Andamans, and seven days are not enough to see them all, unless you hurry everywhere. So a lot depends on the type of vacation you are looking at. Is it a relaxing holiday, try-to-cover-all holiday or just a medium holiday covering the important spots? You will have to think of that first.

Secondly Andamans is costly, especially in hotels' tariffs. But there are ATMs in Port Blair and Havelock, so no need to carry cash all the time. You should try to book the flight tickets as early as possible to get the best prices. Recently when I traveled, the price was around 17000 for Chennai-Port Blair sector.

Trip to Port Blair is mainly divided into three segments - Port Blair and nearby islands which cover the history of English and then Japanese occupations, the trip to Havelock and Neil, which involves soaking the sea, and then the tribal tourism.

This is just a short summary, hope this helps to plan. Questions are always welcome.

Dear Ajit

Apurba has nicely answered your queries

Cost depend upon your itinery ,s/s, type of hotels

Yes first book your air tickets, i booked my tickets in July 2013 for Nov trip. costing only Rs9600/= per head Delhi-Port Blair-Delhi

Package is always better due to logistics involved

I took package from Andaman Escapades Pvt Ltd

In 7 days you can cover PB,Havelock,Neil,Baratang

Dear Ajit

At present air tickets are quite reasonable from Pune -Port Blair-Pune approx Rs17000/= for March, better book tickets first

Than make a itinery of minimum 8 days to cover important places
