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 ship-building, oil refining and steel industries. Apart from a few decent beaches and some interesting temples, there is little to detain tourists. However, the city is a useful place to break up a long journey north or south.
