Greetings from Pondy (In Pics)

''History, culture, nature, food, nightlife & shopping: You get everything & more in Pondicherry.''

Ideal time to visit : October – March. The weather here is humid throughout the year. But the winter months are pleasant for beach activities and sightseeing. If you are adventurous enough, you can indulge in water sports such as scuba diving, snorkelling & banana rides, among others.

Things to see : Of course, the beach.
Sri Aurobindo Ashram: Pl note kids below 3 are not allowed.
Botanical garden
Churches & temples
Chunnambar Boat House. From here, you can go to Paradise Beach on a motorboat.
Goubert market

Boarding : There are options galore. You will get anything from bed & breakfast to really plush hotels.
If you want to stay at a guest house run by Aurobindo Ashram, you could try Park Guest House (Room tariff is Rs 600, Rs 800 and Rs 900 per day without meals). If you are looking for a 3 star, you could try Ginger Hotel, located on the main road in Pondicherry where you get both standard and twin rooms and Sunway GRT Grand, among others. For bed and breakfast, you could look up L’Escale boutique hotel / guest house (contact@lescalepondicherry.com; Website: www.lescalepondicherry.com) Swades Guesthouse (ilyaszamil@yahoo.fr; Website: www.swades-guesthouse.com); Aadhaar Guest House (contact@aadhaarguesthousepondicherry.com ; Website: www.aadhaarguesthousepondicherry.com ), among many more.

Drink and Dine : Local cuisine here has a French influence. You know why! Well, it is obviously for the French connection in the past. May be you could visit Baker Street, Le Kawa or Hidesign Café, to name a few for local/French cuisine. Pondy is a place for food lovers. There are ample Indian and multi-cuisine restaurants here. That apart, you also get good south Indian delicacies. Pl note: If you stay at a hotel where breakfast is not included, you could visit Maison Perumal.

Going around in Pondy : Pondicherry is a small place so getting around places here is not difficult. You get pedal cycles, motorcycles & gearless scooters. You could rent any of these. In the city, you could also walk to most the destinations as they are not too far off from each other.

Shopping : It’s pretty much a shopping paradise. From textiles, handicrafts, home decors to food items & knick knacks, you get every thing here.
