Mumbai is a city where over 20 million people dwell, and space is understandably at a premium there. The working class here is commonly played out in what is called multi-level buildings with small rooms that usually accommodate the whole family. Mumbai roads are shockingly congested and poorly maintained so unfortunately, everything you hear about the local trains here is probably true. The working days and weeks are long and busy as most people do not leave the office until well into the night. Having said that Mumbai has its own charm for which people across the globe visit there.
Andaman, on the other hand, nestles in the Bay of Bengal and is known for its heart-stirring views, blue-green crystal clear waters and marine life. It is one of the most beautiful places in India and has become a hot travel destination in the recent years. The Islands have so much to offer – heavenly beaches, beautiful tourist attractions and adventure to the sports lovers. People here live a very simple life, and a good thing about them is that folks are good artisans; they weave baskets and make their pots, tools, and ornaments.
The people out here are fond of beats and rhythm, and water sport is an integral part of their lives. The life in the Andaman Islands is different to what Mumbai people are used to. Peace, ecstasy and calmness, this is what Andaman is all about.
Though Mumbai is a financial hub of India, there are many places where Mumbaikars love to hang out – to name a few among them are Marine Drive, Aksa beach, Bandra stand, Juhu Chowpatty, Madh Island, Powai Lake, and Gorai beach. With all these options within the city one can pick any and head towards them, the only downside of these beaches is they are usually overcrowded and the waters around Mumbai are not so clear for good marine life to prosper. So, if you want to experience something different, that offers an out of the world experience visit the Andaman Islands. These Islands are home to some of the most beautiful beaches on the planet. Serene, peaceful and gorgeous, one will forever be mesmerized by the white powdery beaches these paradisiacal Islands offer.
