At a distance of 70 Kms from Vijayawada & 340 Kms from Hyderabad, Machilipatnam is a port town and the headquarters of the Krishna District.

It is renowned for its cotton textiles, especially the finely woven muslins and brightly coloured prints. Products include Hand printed silk and cotton saris, upholstery, sling bags and dresses. This was once the principal port town in the Krishna Delta, but now little can be seen of this port town's mercantile past. There are Dutch tombs with carved instructions and coats of arms bearing dates from 1649 to 1725, a reminder of the colonial history of Machilipatnam.

Regular RTC buses are operated to Machilipatnam from Vijayawada Central Bus Station.
