  • 7/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
One of the good cities to travel to. I ran short of time, so could not explore it fully. But I had a good time indeed. The roads are really good and we did make it to the place on time and without any hassles.

Better city to travel with ambiance full of greenery all around to see and enjoy as I was running short of time but I will come the next time to see what I have left. Better historical place with historic market all around keeps our history alive. Better to travel by road with more companions. Have a great Trip.

"A trip to coastal town in south"

  • Posted Jan 28, 2013
Kakinada is a coastal city of Andhra Pradesh. The weather is hot and moisture content in the air is abundant. Though not many places to spend in leisure, it is well connected to places like annavaram, uppada

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Expecting a variety of sea food was a big disappointment. We were informed that most of sea food is exported and most of restaurants do not have variety. Andhra tiffins are abundant and most of the shopping is limited to the main road of kakinada. Kakinada is famous for its kaja..though it has lost its famed taste over the years

Activities & things to do: Do not expect much. you find more temples and movie theatres which do not deserve any mention

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: kakinada can be reached by train or bus or car. journey by any mode is very comfortable. local taxis and autos are available at reasonable prices. It is always better to take light cotton clothes traveling to this place in any season.
