Andaman as a place is so famous that most Indians have read about it while growing up. More than 300 Islands make up Andaman. The remaining 272 make up Nicobar. The Indian archipelago has indigenous tribes that have habited these islands for over two thousand years, with almost no contact with the Indian mainland. To preserve their culture, tourists are often restricted from these areas. However, tourists can learn a lot more about them at the famous Samudrika Marine Museum. Moreover, the museum also has a large number of exotic marine species and even the life-sized blue whale fossil. Other than its historical significance people also book honeymoon packages to Andaman.
