    Trip was good but not as expected bcoz after arivel at airport we gone to hotel zambnb at 10 am but there was no arrangements, Room was very bad and smelting badly and geyser was not working we have wait for two hours and staff told us that electrician is coming but at last after 2 hour they give us another room which was comparatively good. And trip was also not managed properly we can spent almost 3 days at Havelock and not visit Neil island, we have plenty of time at Havelock but Ascot travel advisor not advised us as they should be. Havelock is very good place and we have enjoyed scuba dive which is the best part of this trip I have never experienced

    There are no religious restrictions as such in Andaman, but general societal niceties and etiquettes are to be followed, such as asking people, read native tribes, before taking their photographs.

    The ideal duration depends on how many islands you want to cover in the Andaman. Anything from 4 nights to 9 nights can be considered the ideal duration for a blissfull vacation in the Andaman.

    Andaman is famed across the world for offering some of the greatest seafood of the country. The must try dishes here include crabs, prawns, shrimps, lobsters and a huge range of fish. Vegetarian options are alsos available and are just as good.

    Once awarded as the most beautiful beach in Asia, Radhanagar Beach is a definite must visit when here. The other beaches of Andaman are also beautiful and warrant a visit.

    Mostly there is not much of a nightlife in the Andamans. Some hotels, resorts and bars here do offer a decent nightlife. even though it is a little sedate. However, during New Year's Eve and Christmas, all of Andaman is decked up in fairy lights and the atmosphere can only be defined as electrifying.

    Good time to visit Andaman is between October and May which constitutes summer and winter season in Andaman which is ideal for sightseeing and water sports activities.
