Visakhapatnam

Andhra Pradesh’s second largest city, 650km east of Hyderabad and 350km north of Vijayawada, VISAKHAPATNAM (commonly known as Vizag) is a busy port and home to major shipbuilding, oil refining and steel industries. Apart from a few decent beaches and some interesting temples, the main point of interest is the Submarine Museum on Beach Road, which is the decommissioned Russian-built INS Kurusara. Most of all, the city is a useful place to break up a long journey along the east coast.
