Hi guys!! 

Here’s my first travel post featuring Pondicherry!! 

A little bit about the place: Pondicherry is a Union Territory town bounded by southeastern Tamil Nadu state. It’s French legacy is preserved in its French Quarter, tree lined streets, mustard colored colonial villas & chic boutiques. 

Here’s a bit about my trip:- 

How I went: I took a flight from Mumbai to Chennai & then booked a cab which was a 3 hour beautiful drive to Pondicherry. 

Where I stayed: Hotel Shenbaga. 

Travel within Pondicherry: I booked a Vespa to move around. 

I visited/ did the following in Pondi- 

1) Aurobindo Ashram 

2) Auroville 

3) Kallialay Surf school ( Serenity Beach) 

4) Strolling the streets of the French Quarters 

5) Pondicherry Museum 

6) Beaches: Auro Beach/ Serenity beach/ Paradise Beach 

7) White Town- Heritage Square 

8) Cafe des Artistes

9) Bicycle rides  

On my way back, I stopped by Raddison Blu Temple Bay in Chennai for lunch where the head chef served me a scrumptious sea food meal! I then did a walk through their beautiful property & then headed to the airport for my flight back to Bombay. 

People were really really warm/ helpful around there. I’d definitely suggest you guys to visit. Best time to visit would be from October- March.
