MY TOUR TO BEAUTIFUL ANDAMAN PART -- 1 ......SOMU

Postby SOMU » Tue May 07, 2013 6:10 pm

Andaman, a sparkling crystal in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, will fascinate you. The contrast of colours, cultures and tastes makes the island so charming that the scene is set for an unforgettable holiday. It was my dream to visit andman for years and its comes true with support from my friend Balakrishna raj ( portraj in blueeyeforum).

I got invitation to visit andaman from my friend portraj in jusly 2012. I planed it accordingly and fixed April to visit Andaman with my wife. Portraj told me it will take minimum 7 days to visit the all tourist spots there nearby Andman and all those islands.Accordingly i choose from April 25 2013 to may 3rd 2013 my Andaman tour.

I booked all my flight tickets in November 5 month in advance and get very cheap rate to visit the island. Here i mention portraj has given my to and fro air ticket from kolkata for myself.I am also accompanied by my wife ,sister and her son and daughter , so we are total 5 ,they are three me and wife in total. I asked portraj for hotel arrangements but he offered me to stay at his home like his brother and also arranged his own guest house for my sister and her son and daughter .

We started our journey from Jorhat Airport by jet airways to kolkatta on 24th of April and stayed in Assam house there. Very nice accommodation with only 520 per day A/C room , nice Assamese dinner.Next day on 25th day of april we stated our journey towards dream island Andman. We arrived portblair around 2 pm where portraj was waiting for us to receive in Airport. He take us to his home its only 5 minute distance from Portblair airport to his home.His wife and daughter are waiting for us at home. Portraj dauther is very cute and homely. She got fammilier with us in a short time.We have got a warm reception at his home.After taking delicious lunch me and portraj went out in his bike to play badminton. Portraj introduced me to his friends there. I have got a nice welcome from his friends its a great pleasure for me.

After back from playing badminton take a quick tea in portraj house and evening 5 pm we went out for water sports complex in portblair which is actually a jatty accompanied by a park and nice footpath along the seashore like marine drive in mumbai. Evening hilly portblair is very beautiful. Roads are very neat and clean you will find yourself guilty to split anything on the roads.After spending sometime there we went to Gandhi park and go for a quick overview of market in portblair.We are blessed by portraj as he give us his own car with a driver so we can spend any time as per our liking. There after we backed home and Mina ji ( wife of portraj ) was waiting for us with a delicious dinner with sea fish.

Next day 26th morning we went for wandor beach almost 25-20 km from portblair which is not friendly for swimming or you cannot go too far into the water as beach is quite stiff.But its sends are full of corals you will get different corals may pick up one or two as per liking.After spending more than an hour in the beach.After that we went to rubber plantation where a guide show us how rubber is cut from the rubber tree and processed for raw rubber and later used for tyre and tubes.Also he guided through agricultural garden near by rubber plantation. There after went to coffe bagan and back to portblair for a hotel to take lunch.After lunch we went to marina beach of portblair which is a very beautiful beach with sun bath facility.Also you can go for drive in a water scooty and small very fast boat for some fun.Take tea there and back to portblair again. evening we went for light and sound show of cellular jail. Don't missed it if you want to know those days why andaman was known as kaliapni.You will get whole history of British atrocity in andaman cellular jail. Here is the picture of cellular jail in portblair

Next day 27th April we started our journey to havelock by Cruse , it was amazing to go through the sea in cruze, it goes 45km/hr speed on average , air conditioned luxury ship take Rs 815 per person.It took almost 1 hour to reach havelock from portblair jatty.Portraj has arranged the PWD guest house for us there , air conditioned rooms very neat and clean. (Again we are blessed by portraj there as staying havelock is very costly even government tourism cottage will cost you 2k to 2.5++ a/c room). Guest house is next to havelock jatty beside sea. you can seat in the varanda in arm chairs and can have a look of beautiful sea.A very good place to stay.After taking lunch in guest house we go out for Radhanagar Beach which is one of the best beach i saw ever in India. Better than goa beaches in my opinion. We enjoyed a lot there go dip into the sea as portraj with us no problem he is a very good swimmer.Still once i go inside the water and some water go through my mouth and get test of sea walter lol. My wife gaggles went away by sea water.Beach has good bath room to take bath and change. From there we went to market in havelock its a very small market we took samosa and very nice tea also pani puri( we called it fuska ). We went to fish market there to see different fishes.After finishing tea we back to guest house and take 2 hour rest.

After having a delicious dinner in the guest house we went to port its wakable and luckly port was open as there is some unloading going on. Otherwise after 7pm Port gates are closed. We sit all together There taking fresh sea air.After that back to hotel and all went for sleep

The first part i ends here next part will be publish after 2 to 3 days when it is ready. I am writing in parts as all friends are eager to know what i did in portblair.

Pwd guest house staying not free it cost 1200 per night per room , food very costly in andaman , simple one dinner and 2 lunch and one morning tea total cost 4700 for 8 person guest house bill. You imagine what will be the bill if you staying in a resort. Of course guest house for us provided by portraj for us.

somu dear
It was nice to read ur experience of Andaman Nicobar Island. u have presented ur visit in such a way that , it gives temptation that one muct go there in a life time . more over its not a matter of reducing costing only but if some known person is there at such places to get quick and accurate guidance and u r not deceived by local. ur presentation expresses how big heart has potraj which seldom found in today’s time. I think this tour and the hospitality extend by portraj will go long in ur memory.
waiting for for ur next part

Totally agree with you money and spending does not matter anyone can spen and its not a problem for me to spend.But the hospitality and accompany i got from portraj and his family is unforgettable and will be in my memory for lifetime. Even a local person guide only in an unknown place is a big thing otherwise its 100% sure you will be deceive by any travel agent for sure how smart you are don't matters. Portraj is a person with big heart no doubt but without his wife support he could not do. Both portraj and his wife has a big heart.
