Suchit Says

Andaman is surely an amazing honeymoon destinations in India. Me and my better half went there recently in February for honeymoon. The experience was amazing and beyond expectations. We had planned 5 nights honeymoon tour to Andaman Islands , it was a package and we headed from Delhi. I have been to many beaches in India but the beauty of Andaman islands was phenomenal and stunning. Andaman is perfect honeymoon place with so much of privacy and these islands are away from crowds. You can find nature in its every nook and corner, the food is amazing and the accommodations are also luxurious.
Forget Kerala, Goa and hill stations, Just go to Andaman Islands there is no place in India like Andaman.
It’s great romanticbug, that you have put Andaman in first position.
