      We are traveling to Port Blair in January 2011 on a Cruise Ship.
      We have only 1 day in this elusive port. I have done numerous searches on this port but have not found much information. Can anyone tell me if there are markets to shop at,restaurants,is money exchange easy to access, what money they do accept? (we are Aussie)and any other hints you may be able to share with us, I would be gratefully appreciative.
      Thanks in advance
      Stephanie.

      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,
      Cherry

      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!
