Andaman is a beautiful place, far away from the maddening crowd of the cities. Port Blair is a town inhabited by a few thousand people. It is a melting pot of culture. The archipelago comprises of hundreds of islands, among which only 36 are accessible for tourism purposes. It is one of the best vacation spots for national and international travelers. The local cuisine, the scenic beauty, and the unique experience lure people from all corners of the world.
Nonetheless, like every other beautiful thing, Andaman has its stings. You need to know a few things about the Andaman Islands before you head there.
Don’t let the weather ruin your Andaman Nicobar tour package
The weather during the monsoons can be quite treacherous. The sea is usually calm, but storms and torrential rains can make it turbulent. Travelers should always keep their eyes on the weather channel before boarding their flight or cruise if traveling during the rainy seasons. Always speak to the local guide and heed the timings of coastal areas during off-season travel.
Keep your Andaman Nicobar tour package cashless
Spending time on beaches means relaxing a lot, jibber jabbering and of course nodding off in the warm sun once in a while. These are the times people often misplace their belongings. While traveling to the beach, carry very little cash and do not carry other valuables. Keep your cameras, mobile phones, and jewelry safe. Do not leave it with unknown “friendly” tourists.
Although rare, people have faced minor thefts in the more populated areas of Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Thousands of tourists travel to the islands each month, and it is almost impossible to ensure that your luggage will be safe if you leave your bags on the beach or a sidewalk. Keep your trolleys and bags locked at all times. Leave a note with contact details and address on the luggage.
Be sure that you can find lots of working ATMs in Port Blair. You can also exchange currency and find access to much internet on this island. Beyond Port Blair, it is a little difficult to find internet connectivity. ATMs are not as common either. Withdraw only the amount you need, prepay Andaman Nicobar tour package vendors as per your plan using cards and do not carry extravagant amounts of cash during your island-hopping sessions.
Pay attention to health concerns while paying for your Andaman Nicobar tour package
Plan the activities very carefully. Para-sailing, jet skiing, snorkeling and scuba diving are a lot of fun if you are young and healthy. Talk to instructors and authentic agencies if you have heart problems or if you are recovering from recent medical procedures. There are several kinds of activities for everyone in the Andaman Islands, so do not feel compelled to participate in what your friends are doing.
Always keep emergency contact numbers in person. You can end up having a medical emergency; even a simple allergy can escalate without the availability of a doctor on a remote island like chidiya Tapu. When you are traveling in a group, keep everyone’s contact details written in a notebook. Misplacing mobile phones or dropping one of the waters is a common accident during spirited trips.
Remembering these few points will always help you make the best of your holidays in Andaman. Staying safe and planning strollers can help you enjoy your Andaman tour a lot more.
