Its a beautiful place the places you can see are divided mainly into 2 areas, namely the French Quarters and Tamil Quaters French Quarters is a small linear strip of land, and can be covered easily by walk in a days time. The colors of the streets with their names adds to street walking. If you need to take a trip knowing all the places around there.....take a bike trip in the morning. The tamil quarters are good with churches and mosques and an ideal place for budget food.
Hi Radhika , I visited Pondicherrry in the month of August. Its very hot and humid because its a sea shore.But on the other hand you might know that Pondy is known as French capital of India, the whole french architecture gives you a good vibe, which you cant see in any part of India. It also gives a different experience. Beaches are same like everywhere else but yes sitting in Rock Beach gives you peace. You can stay near Rock Beach, there are so many places accessible from there you can have a early morning walk and evening walk with your better half gives you goosebumps. Places you can visit-Auroville, Ashram,White town for Cafes,Paradise Beach is little far but preferred going in evening or morning otherwise too hot in day time,Promenade Beach. Basilica of Jesus, Museum etc. rest upto you what type of visit you want . If you want intellectual visit , then you must read it s history first or for fun only its sufficient to spend 3 days only.
