Stephanie is going to the Andaman and Nicobar Islands for a month over December to January.  I am going by myself but if anyone feels like an adventure they are welcome to come along.

The plan is to leave around the 16th of December and come back around the 14th  of January 2012.  

The Andaman’s is supposed to be one of the most isolated places on earth.  Lying in the Bay of Bengal between India and Thailand.  1400km’s from India and 1000km’s from Thailand.   I am planning to fly to Chennai via Dubai and then in Chennai take another flight to Port Blair on the Main Island. 

The Islands consist of about 600 Islands but Tourists only have access to 9 of them.  The Islands still contain some of the most Ancient Civilizations on the Planet originating from the Aboriginal people.  However going in search of them is not recommended as the chances are pretty big that you won’t come back!  

Return tickets will be in the region of around R12 000  but living on the Islands for a month is very cheap.  You can probably budget on about R1000 a week including activities.
