I believe it is natural human inclination to generate an occasion to rejoice. After a tired day of work, we want to hang out with our loved ones and relax ourselves and to be away from every day’s hectic schedule. If we are having our depression, we need our family and friends to support us and that turns out to be a family get together. If we have learnt to celebrate during our sad times, then let us not even try considering our happy time celebrations. Let it be a slog in salary, the birthday of a family member or any sacred festival, we always need and find various reasons to celebrate. Festivals and events have flourished in recent decades and interest in understanding their significance in the tourism academy has risen accordingly.
Andaman and Nicobar island Festival -2012-13 is scheduled to start from 5th January, 2013 to 15th January, 2013.The Island Tourism Festival is organized every year in the month of December or January.

Andaman and Nicobar Islands have an exclusive culture, where all religions, languages, racial groups live in total peace and coordination and hence it is precisely called Mini India. Port Blair has a broad-based character where people of all walks of life live together in peace and calmness. All major festivals are celebrated with equal zeal and enthusiasm and are joined by all sacred groups.
Many people are still confused about How to reach Andaman let me guide you with it; there are two routes for being there – Air ways and water ways. Port Blair is the Andaman’s chief gateway which is well associated by air & sea whereas regular passenger ship services are available to this region from the India’s major cities Vishakapatnam, Kolkata and Chennai. As per to my experience the best way to get there is to take flight from New Delhi, Kolkata & Chennai.
So be prepared to land up at the middle of sea in Jan where you will experience something new and different kind of enjoyment to make you more enthusiastic.
