Situated in the Bay of Bengal, the Andaman Islands, also known as Emerald Isles because of their green forests, are an isolated group of 325 islands with distinct beauty. Still remaining untouched by mass tourism, the islands are located closer to Thailand than to India and the main settlement called the Port Blair is easily approached from India by plane or ferry.
