      sunseven, I happened to visit Vishakhapatnam about 2 years back and found it quite beautiful a place. I found it quite green and it seems it is a great station for settling. Could not get much time to visit beach as it was a very hot season but could have a glimpse while on way to Kakinada. Your Hub reminded me all those sweet memories linked with this tour.
