      Hi, Chennai VT,

      Is it easy to flag and board an ordinary taxi in Eillot's Beach and anywhere else in India without calling a taxi in advance? Will taxi drivers without passengers stop to allow passengers to board if passengers flag?

      I just want to avoid the autos.

      Which is nice location with cool climate around this time

      2. Honeymoon Package: Which option should I choose. Booking hotel by my own or through travel agency
      booking through travel agency there are two options . 1. they arrange honeymoon for couples together(group honeymoon). or provide individual honey package.

      Flying to Port Blair

      by cherrybug Online Now Sep 17, 2007 at 8:59 AM

      Hi,

      We are thinking about flying from Chennai to Port Blair for about 5 days in january. It seems Spicejet offer the cheapest flights though these are still quite expensive.

      Are there any cheaper airlines that fly from southern India to Port Blair?
      Can we book flights through their website here in the UK?
      Would it be cheaper to wait until we are in India to book?
      What is the availability of these flights - ie. is it better to book early?

      Many thanks,

      chennai to port blair to southern thailand.. via boat/ship

      by rising_sun Online Now Aug 3, 2005 at 10:19 AM

      is this possible? I am finding possible information on ships leaving from chennai about once a week, but nothing about getting to thailand. We have the time to spare and don't want to fly more than we need to. Plus we are on a fairly short budget.
      By the way, has the situation on the islands improved enough that tourists are ok to come? (All of these questions apply to our trip that will begin in may 2006)
      if anyone has any advice, it would be welcome!
