i was going to go to SE India thinking its the closest when someone showed me a map on their IPad showing the Andaman islands closer. My main interest is snorkelling. I think now that even though the Andamans are further so would cost more to fly there and back to Colombo the snorkelling would be superior. Neil's island seems to be the place where you can swim from shore to snorkell. What is your opinion? Also is the value of the Indian rupee the same as sri lanka's? is it an expensive place to stay at and would i need to book a reservation?
If you can help me out with any of this i'd be most grateful.
