    • Help with planning a trip to Andamans

      We are a family of four, planning a trip to Andamans in end-June-early July. I would appreciate advice with the following issues:

      1. Is this a good time to travel there? If not, what's the best time?
      2. What's the shortest distance if one decides to take a ferry, from Chennai or Kanyakumari?
      3. Can one try/learn scuba diving if one doesn't know swimming? Would you recommend any particular company? and, island?

      Please help! Much thanks, Navnita

    • Andaman Islands

      I am planning to visit the islands of Andaman and Nicobar. Is it worth staying there for more than a day? Read the wikitravel pages, and there seems to be very little to see. I am not into snorkeling or scuba diving.

    • Andaman Trip In May

      Hello,

      Myself and wife want to visit Andaman in May to celebrate our anniversary. We want a nice recommendation for hotel and places so below questions so far:

      1> Weather during May

      If it is raining then I would prefer a really nice hotel recommendation - 4 stars or similar
      If not then a convenient nice hotel would be good. 3 star or even lower

      2> We are flexible in dates maybe 7 days. So should teh split be 5 days port blair, 2 days Havelock as most sites and packages are offering

      3> Hotel recommendations in both places to book online

      4> Travel within the islands - is it simple to arrange once there or booking a package is important?

      Appreciate the help. We like becah side hotels if the weather is going to be sunny.

      appreciate any help.

      Some questions about getting to Andaman Island

      I guess the first and most important thing is if the permit is still available on arrival? I am a lone male Canadian traveler wanting to go there during Chinese new year. Will i be able to get eth permit on arrive at the airport there or should it be arranged ahead of time? if can get it there, is there a delay period or same day?

      I am also having trouble finding flights to this island. I Have been checking sites like http://www.flykingfisher.com/ but so far not having luck, makes em think i am getting the destination name wrong.

      I am traveling from Taiwan and probabyl going to go to Kuala Lumpur as its the cheapest flight from here that can then go to many places. Not many cheap flights direct from Taiwan this time of year. But I am assuming that there are still only direct flights form India to these islands, right?

      My maximum travel time form leaving and returning to Taiwan is Jan 21-29, so pretty short. My reason for going here is to photograph the plants and animals, especially geckos.

      Thanks a lot for any current info :)

      Flights to Port Blair

      This question has been asked previously but upto date information will be really useful. I am hoping to fly from either Kolkata or Chennai to Port Blair just before Christmas returning just after New Year, something like December 22nd to January 2nd. I have checked various sources for flights and cost seem to be in the region of £150 to £200 return including all taxes and charges if I book now from the UK.

      My question is should I book now or will I be able to pick up cheaper flights in India, or in fact will the flights be really busy over Christmas and New Year?

      thanks

      Flying to Port Blair

      Port Blair 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,
