SIMHACHALAM: Simhadri or Simhachalam temple is a Hindu temple located near Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh, South India. It is dedicated to the incarnation (Avatar) of Vishnu known as Narasimha (the man-lion).

Visakha Museum (Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation Museum) is located in the port city of Visakhapatnam which houses the historical treasures and artifacts of the Kalingandhra region. Museum collections include ancient armory, crockery, coins, silk costumes, jewelry, portraits, manuscripts, letters, diaries, periodicals and maps etc. These all were used by the early settlers in the region.
R K Beach: A visit to Visakhapatnam is surely incomplete without a visit to the Beach. The Rama Krishna Beach or RK Beach as it is commonly called is the closest beach park you can reach from the heart of the city. Over night stay at the Resort/Hotel.
Day 2: VIZAG
BHEEMLI Beach: The long scenic drive from Vizag city to Bheemili Beach at Bheemunipatnam is a wonder in itself. The road is broad (four-lane up to a point) and is by the coast, so we catch glimpses of some fishing hamlets, some small temple structures and the blue sea, along the way. On entering Bheemunipatnam, we go by the clock tower and some very quaint and ancient Dutch bungalows to arrive at a turning that finally brings into sight a crowded promenade, a sandy beach and the vast magnificent stretch of the Bay of Bengal that reaches out to meet the shoreline of Bheemili Beach. We see a brick red Dutch Cemetery to the left and a small lighthouse right on the beach.
THOTLAKONDA: Thotlakonda was influenced by the ancient Kalinga region which was an important source of dissemination of Buddhist culture to Sri Lanka and various parts of South East Asia. A hill on the seacoast with a salubrious climate was the ideal place for Buddhist monks to build a monastic complex here. Thotlakonda came to light during an aerial survey by the Indian Navy.
RAMANAIDU Film Studio: It is situated in lush green mountains with face opening up in the Sea.
RISHIKONDA: Rishikonda Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches of Andhra Pradesh. The scenic beauty of the beach attracts many tourists all the year round.
KAILASH Giri: Kailashgiri is one of the favorite destinations for visitors to Visakhapatnam. Kailashgiri is a popular tourist spot offering a panoramic glimpse of the Bay of Bengal and the city. The air is cool and fresh, and both Kailashgiri and the surrounding hills are covered with lush greenery. Back to Resort. Overnight stay.
