Port Blair TIPS

by moomoogirl

Hi there,

We are traveling to Port Blair in January 2011 on a Cruise Ship.
We have only 1 day in this elusive port. I have done numerous searches on this port but have not found much information. Can anyone tell me if there are markets to shop at,restaurants,is money exchange easy to access, what money they do accept? (we are Aussie)and any other hints you may be able to share with us, I would be gratefully appreciative.
Thanks in advance
Stephanie.

I had a similar query about 10/15 days ago. I then scrounged the net and put
together two articles written by two different travellers (not VTers). Have
attached two files and have emailed them to you. The map was too large. So I have sent you the link. Will be there from tomorrow till the 4th. of Jan. with wifey dear. Hope to see you ;-)

Yes, there are plenty of markets and restaurants, ATMs, et al. It is a 'mini
India'. The humble Indian rupee is accepted.

In case you have trouble downloading the attachements, here are the links:

Travel Tips for Port Blair

General Tips

by anilpradhanshillong

1. In the ship, MV Makruzz, the best seats for a clear view is row 17, ‘M’ &’N’. While booking, request for these seats.

2. At Elephant Beach, take your own lunch and plenty of water. There’s no food stall at Elephant Beach.

3. The sun sets early in this part of the world. At 4 pm its bright and warm; by 4.30, its dusk and by 5 pm, it gets pitch dark. This is December last week and January-first week experience.

4. At the Cellular Jail, take an authorised guide from near the booking counter. He will tell you a lot more than what the pamphlets and books on tourism contain. He will not charge you more than Rs. 150/-

5. For the light and sound show at the Cellular Jail in the evening, go a bit early and occupy the very last row of seats. Not only is the light effects better from that vantage place but also the roof of the VIP enclosure, just behind you, will protect you.

6. Line up as soon as you see the Jolly Buoy Island to exit from the rear of the ship. Else, you have to wait for an inordinate length of time as the small boats go to and fro.

7. At Jolly Buoy, carry you lunch and water along as there is no cafeteria there. Also, no plastic is allowed. Your bags are checked at the Wandoor jetty, before boarding the ship, for plastic bags.

Ross Island - Wildlife

While wondering around Ross Island, we saw lots of deer, most of which were shy and skittish, but there were a few lying in the sun near the entrance who were quite happy to be petted! We also caught glimpses of peacocks, but never close enough to photograph!
