Reached pondy in the morning by 6am. Took an auto to the hotel. And now comes a twist. We came to know that hotel booking is done for next week by mistake. Now what?After requesting the manager he allotted us a different room thankfully. The hotel staff was very sweet. After taking rest we decided to walk down the streets to explore the area nearby.
Promenade beach was very near. But the weather was very hot and humid.
Then in the afternoon,went for Paradise Beach. You have to take a ferry ride to reach the beach.
● ferry takes at least 20-25 mins to reach there.It was fun ride. Then from the shore you need to walk for atleast 10mins to reach the beach.
● it was so beautiful there. It was worth coming there. The beach is clean and well maintained. You will just get lost in the waves. We spent hours in the sea enjoying the hi waves. Had lot of fun there.
● Actually ferry rides back within 3hrs so you have to be back on time.
After that we hired a scooty and headed to Auroville.It took us around 30mins to reach there.There are a lot of cafes and shops selling local stuff made by local people there.From here you need to walk in the woods for about 20mins to rech the Matrimandir. To visit the matrimandir you need a prior booking which we didnt know so we just saw it from outside.Its basically a place for meditation.
So after little bit of shopping we came back.
By the end of the day we visited Rock Beach and Serenity Beach.
Today being our last day here we just took the scooty and explored each n every gali in pondicherry. and visited many cafes on the way.
In the night we had our bus back to bangalore.We spent a great time in pondicherry and came back with lot of good memories.
● Bus tickets price to and fro Bangalore - Pondicherry approx 4500
