VISAKHAPATNAM

Also known as Vizag, Visakhapatnam is the second biggest city in Andhra Pradesh illuminating a beach-resort vibe, which helped the city to bear the sobriquet of ‘jewel of the east coast’. Erstwhile a small fishing town, today, Visakhapatnam is famous for steel and big ports, and has become one of the major industrial centres in the coastal belt. Perched on the east coast, and home to the Eastern Naval Command of the Indian Navy, it houses India’s richest supplier of natural minerals. This port-city also has many thermal stations, oil refineries, managed and operated by both private and public sector companies.

Offering something for all travellers, Visakhapatnam is packed with domestic and international tourists. This southeast India port-city has eight beaches, hilltop parks, wildlife sanctuaries, a nature preserve and a fascinating submarine museum. A city of cultural and religious diversity, Visakhapatnam has some marvelous Buddhist structures like Sankaram Buddhist Excavations, Bavi Konda and Pavurala Konda. Characterised by enthusiasm, vibrancy and feasts, famous events in the city are Chandanotsavam, ISKON Utsav, Lumbini Festival, Navy Day and Visakha Utsav. Thronged by food lovers, Visakhapatnam is famous for spicy coastal Andhra delicacies and seafood cooked in sesame oil and coconut milk. The shopping lanes of Visakhapatnam, such as Kurupam Market, TSR Complex and Jagadamba Center offer an exclusive variety of hand-woven carpets, Pochampalli, Ikat, and Dharamavaram sarees, silk brocades, spices, and scented soaps.

From beach lovers, to business travellers and cultural aficionados, Visakhapatnam is a mesmerising amalgamation of industries, historical relics, monuments, scenic beaches and lush greenery. The city embraces its past and present seamlessly, making it a unique and attractive city to spend holidays or for attending meetings and conferences at business hotels in Visakhapatnam.
