Andaman Islands & New Dehli, India


Andaman Islands & New Dehli, India

So, I know there's a lot of Indian users on this forum and I'm hoping I can get some good tips from you (other can of course contribute as well). smile happy

I'm going to the Andaman Islands i January/February for some vacation.

I will spend most the time on Havelock Island and Neil Island.

Has anyone been to these islands? Do you know anyone who's been there?

I'll spend half a week in New Dehli as well. What is a MUST see? smile happy

Re: Andaman Islands & New Dehli, India

Thanks! smile happy

I will have to talk everything through with my friend whom I will travel with but this looks cool. That temple looks amazing!

I know New Dehli is a huge city and there's probably no good answer to this but where do you reckon we should live if we want to see as much as possible? Should we go with the logic and try to find a hotel in the very city center or are there better places?

We're also talking about taking a trip to Taj Mahal. Is it worth it? ...or is it just a tourist trap? It looks pretty impressive.

I've been at (and inside) the Giza pyramids in Kairo and that was some impressive stuff. I image this can be something similar. smile happy


Re: Andaman Islands & New Dehli, India

  • Qutub Minar

well this is another great monument here in delhi smile happy

Re: Andaman Islands & New Dehli, India

  • Red Fort

This colossus citadel made by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan is pride of Delhi. The mighty fort spreading in 2.4 km is built with red stone and thus got the name Red Fort or Lal Quila.

Re: Andaman Islands & New Dehli, India


Re: Andaman Islands & New Dehli, India

well yes taj mahal is also a place to see smile happy

if you want any detailed  information , then only hire a guide..

well but i think you should not smile happy

you can look at all the things by yourself..

theres no need..and you said it correct , i am not proud of this but they misguide tourists and extract money so you will be better off without a guide smile happy

one more warning : guides will flood you laugh haha..... they will be all over , around you ..just a warning silly


Re: Andaman Islands & New Dehli, India

You're on fire! smile happy Thanks for all the tips.

I only have 4 days in New Dehli so I won't have time for all this but I'll sit down and have a look at this and see what my friends think about it. smile happy Thanks again!
