He booked his honeymoon package to Andaman from TravelTriangle and included their transfers, hotels, sightseeing, and meals – all for a cost of INR 21,800. Let us hear their story!

    This was our honeymoon trip and needless to say, a very special one! It was my first vacation with my wife and I really wanted everything to be perfect.

    We had chosen Andaman as our holiday destination since we knew it would offer us peace, serenity, romance, and beauty that we so needed after a busy wedding! And we were right!

    I booked our honeymoon package to Andaman via TravelTriangle which I found on the internet. After filling in relevant details, I was soon contacted by their representative who connected me to various travel agents after taking in my requirements.

    These travel agents then gave me various competitive quotes and itineraries as per my needs and I selected the best one from Andaman Emerald Holidays.

    Now that we were done with the travel package, all we had to do now was to wait for our holiday to begin!

    Day 1: Witnessing the beauty in Andaman

    We took our flight from Kolkata and arrived at the Savarkar Airport in Port Blair on time. Upon our arrival, we soon found the travel representative from our chosen travel agency and he welcomed us warmly. We were soon transferred to our hotel – Hotel S.L. International had a simple yet beautiful ambience. Both my wife and I liked the hotel and post our check in, we decided to take a nap to refresh our senses.

    At around 2 PM, we got ready for our sightseeing tour and set off for the Corbyn Cove Beach. This was a simple, tidy and a small beach that offered breathtaking views of the ocean and also numerous water activities.

    Water activities here included Jet Ski, Speed boat ride, Banana boat ride among many and we tried Jet Skiing here. This ride was an awesome experience for us and also added an adventurous flavor to our honeymoon. But since, we were running short on time, we decided to move on.

    Next on our list was the Cellular Jail which was a historic experience since it showcased the struggles of the past in the area. The light and sound show in the evening here was fascinating and told us haunting stories of people behind the bars.

    Post the tour, we returned to our hotel and called it a night.

    Day 2: Visiting the islands

    Beautiful nature in Andaman

    This day, we were to visit the North Bay island and the Ross island. Upon our arrival at the North Bay Island, we got complimentary snorkeling from our travel agent and it was a very surreal and romantic experience. Although, we could also do Scuba diving, my wife and I chose to avoid it since I was asthmatic. Nonetheless, Snorkeling was an amazing experience and holding hands with my wife underwater exploring its beauty was absolutely fantastic. Our lunch at the island included the famous Surmayee fish post which we started for Ross island on a small boat.

    Natural beauty in Andaman

    Ross Island was a private island for Britishers and still had the whole buildings, signposts and other remains (Church, bakery, powerhouse, pond and many more remnants). Post our sightseeing in Ross island, we returned to our hotel, only to find a wonderful honeymoon cake courtesy our agents – Andaman Emerald Holidays.

    Happy and excited, we retired for the night.

    This day, we woke up to beautiful weather and post a delightful breakfast, proceeded on for Havelock island. We were to go to Havelock on a luxury cruise – H.M. Makruzz and it was an awesome experience. The journey was smooth and we were offered food and refreshments among many other things.

    Beautiful Radhanagar beach in Havelock

    At Havelock, we were also taken to Radhanagar beach which was so beautiful that our camera and words, both cannot do justice to it. The turquoise waters, white sand, greenery, blue sky, and creamy clouds all mixed up beautifully to form sceneries that refreshed our minds and souls.

    Unfortunately, we could not spend a lot of time here since we had to take a ferry back to Port Blair.

    The ferry ride on the way back was a rough one.
