Before I left my friend’s house, his mom and dad packed lunch for me which was so sweet.
I took a 3-hour bus ride from Chennai to Pondicherry.
From Pondicherry bus station, I walked approximately 1.5km to get to my hotel Pleasant Inn where I had a not so pleasant stay.
The next morning, I took the full day city tour by Puducherry Tourism Development Corporation. It only costs 300 IRs per person.
Below is the itinerary.
Most of the places we went, taking pictures was not allowed. I did like the house boat though and the main reason I did the tour…to see the outer view of Matrimandir in Auroville.
We also stopped in a Christian Church which was beautiful.
The next day, I just spent time along the bay since my bus to Kerala was not until 10pm.
Pondicherry is beautiful and definitely worth a visit for a day or two.
