Visakhapatnam Travel Guide

Take one part of golden beaches and the blue, blue sea that stretches to the horizon, add low rise rolling hills that shield and protect the city on the other side. Stir in some history - temples and archeological sites, culture and crafts. Juxtapose a major shipbuilding yard and a thriving business scenario where a massive steel plant and oil refinery among other growing industries jostle for space to become the fastest growing city on the east coat of India. Shake it up and what do you get? A heady cocktail called Visakhapatnam -- destination you would not want to miss.

More often than not referred to as Vizag or Waltair - Visakhapatnam is a sleepy town come into its own as a business centre as well as a tourist's delight. So come and explore the charms of this town.

Visakhapatnam or Vizag is also known as the 'city of destiny'.

There is a Submarine Museum in Vizag - the only one of its kind in Asia.

The most powerful lighthouse on the coast of India is situated on Dolphin's Nose. Ships out at sea up to 65 km can spot the light from this beacon.
