Tourism is in its beginning stages. Therefore, it can be challenging to find a hostel in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Most of the hotels springing up cater to the rich tourist.

For your best bet of finding a hostel or economic, hostel-type accommodation, head to Port Blair, South Andaman Island. You should be able to find a night's lodging for two between $10 and $35. The rooms' furnishings and facilities may well be basic, but you will most likely only sleep and shower there.

Close by, you will find the Cellular Jail Complex. It tells the history of Indian and British freedom fighters who were taken prisoner. Be sure to watch the Sound and Light Show presented in English as well Hindi.

Then you can head over to the Kalapani Museum, a three-story building wherein photos and dioramas visually tell the story of the region's struggle for independence and the subsequent changes.

After your busy day of history and fun in the sun, choose from the numerous restaurants in the capital city for some amazing Indian vegetarian or seafood dishes. Then head back to your hostel by the beach and fall asleep to the lulling sound of the sea.
