Kerala Holidays Vs Andaman Holidays
It is not easy to plan a vacation, as we as vacation-seeking individuals, get so confused with the diverse set of holiday options that Indian Landscape has to offer us. These options are ranging from historical, coastal, forest, hills, deserts, and beaches like holiday places.
One such confusion is evident when one is choosing between Andaman or Kerala for one’s holiday. This confusion is widespread but is very prominent vis a vis Kerala and Andaman islands.
These two places differ drastically from one another in terms of their culture, activities, beauty, landscape, and hence experience. You can neither pit them against each other nor substitute a trip to one my trip to the other, both are different from each other.
Compared to Kerala, Andaman is more widely and actively appreciated for the small islands and long beaches to the horizon. On top of it, Andaman is an apt location to relax and for leisure as it doesn’t demand much long intra- island travel.
On the other hand, God’s own country, Kerala shot up to fame overnight and became an instant traveler’s favorite because of its green interiors, far from the city's geography, the lush bushes, calming water, and unexplored cultural experiences.
Kerala provides a wholesome experience in itself. Kerala tour involves a lot of traveling starting from Cochin to Trivandram.
Kerala offers more and varied holiday options ranging from Hills, lakes, backwater, and Beaches Compared to Andaman.
Easy access to Kerala from a varied different mode of Transport has made Kerala a little more economical and flexible option.
This is common for both locations in the sense that you can travel to both places at any time of the year! That’s a bonus for choosing them as your travel destinations.
The weather in both places remains pleasant throughout the year. Hence, whenever you get the rush to travel to these places, the cities welcome you with open skies and a lovely breeze. You are advised not to travel to Andaman in Rainy seasons as Cruise services may get interrupted
Despite that, We at Club Holiday suggest and believe that the beauty of Kerala is enhanced in winters and if possible you must plan accordingly.
The temperature is soothing and the feel is heavenly. To mention, the months from October to April can be considered ideal. If you are looking out for ayurvedic treatments and more natural engagements, we believe that the best months for those would be from June to August.
In terms of planning when to travel, both Kerala and Andaman are pretty flexible and welcoming at all times.
Neither Andaman nor Kerala is short of sightseeing spots. Both have a lot to offer to their lovers. But here, we need to decide whether we want a closer experience with palm trees and beaches in Andaman or we need a cultural twist with our Kerala package.
Ideally, 9 days is considered a good amount of time for these packages but because Club Holiday understands the time crunch, we suggest 5-6 days for Andaman to get around and a stay of 6 /7 days in Kerala. As per your time availability choose the destination

It connects nature to history. We assure you that you won't be disappointed with this museum.
4. Cellular National Memorial in Port Blair
This is not an ideal location for a vacation but who wouldn’t want to see the places that they have only heard about till now. This place has captured the horrors of the past and one must be a part of this story and be aware of it. Although this place was pretty much destroyed by the Japanese military around world war 2, still this spot has maintained its charm among travelers.
Though Kerala is unmatched in terms of its cultural offerings and the atmosphere, it doesn’t offer a much wider range of shops to satisfy one’s shopping desires. On the other hand, Andaman never disappoints shopaholics. It offers shops and stores flaunting coastal artifacts, local to the region, especially the magnificent corals and seashells.
For Andaman, we recommend getting around on boats and local water taxis to enjoy the real thing and have a hassle-free experience, while in Kerala, a rental car is suggested.
We understand that vacations with closed ones are always great but good research about the trip destination always helps. Do check out our offerings, rates, and inclusions at clubholiday.com and let us know what's next on your mind?
Both the places have their charm and beauty and are good for family and honeymoon tour. Planning a tour with the help travel planner will help in adding more fun to your Tour.
