Recently I visited Visakhapatnam for an art related project. The tour was really unforgettable. The place is really nice for open air painting. I have visited Rusikonda, Bheemli, Simhachalam Hill,Lord Varaha Narasimha Swami's Temple, Ross Hill,Yarada village,Yarada Beach,Kailasagiri Hill,Tennati Park,VUDA Park,R.K.Beach, Light House,Dolphine Nose Point, Hindustan Ship Yard,Araku Valley and many other places. The weather was perfect for the tour. The people here are very well mannered ,helpful,disciplined and hardworking. APSRTC bus services are one of the best bus services I have ever seen in my life.
The view of Bay of Bengal from R.K.Beach,Rushikonda,Yarada Beach and Bheemli is breathtaking. Visakhapatnam Railway station is also very beautiful and well maintained. I reached VIZAG by Chennai -Santragachi AC Bi-weekly Super Fast Express. Visakhapatnam
city is surrounded by small and big hills. I caught the bus 900k from APSRTC bus terminus for Bheemli. The tour was a majestic one. The bus runs through the Beach road for an hour. On the way you can view the hills of Kailasagiri,Rushikonda and Bay of Bengal simultaneously.
Visakhapatnam or Vizag is really a paradise on earth. You can find here lakes,cool beaches,vallies,caves,rivers,forests,parks,big ships,light houses,mountain ranges,sanctuary,mountain railway (Visakhapatnam to Kirandul ) ,museums and many other interesting things.
