Visakhapatnam

Visakhapatnam – also called Vizag (vie-zag) – is Andhra Pradesh’s largest city, famous for steel and its big port, but also doubling as a beach resort for sea-breeze-seeking domestic tourists. During the main December–February holiday season there's a distinctly kitschy vibe, with camel rides and thousands of bathers (though no swimmers).

The pedestrian promenade along Ramakrishna Beach is pleasant for a stroll, and nearby Rushikonda Beach is perhaps Andhra’s best. Every year the city hosts Visakha Utsav, a festival with food stalls on Ramakrishna Beach, exhibitions and cultural events.

With international connections across Asia, including Singapore, more international travelers are now passing through.
