So it all started in my head as a long weekend was approaching and I don't wanted to waste it doing nothing. When it comes to traveling I get excited way too much because I have inherited this from my parents, it's basically the Genes, so this time also I did a bit of research and yeah told my partner in crime pack your bags we are going to Pondicherry. Now coming to traveling, in order to reach Pondicherry one first needs to reach Chennai. Pondicherry is about 185 kms from Chennai. I wanted to execute this trip on budget and flights from Pune to Chennai were expensive so I decided to spend some time with Indian Railways. So here comes the first pointer -
HOW TO REACH PONDICHERRY -
- Pondicherry doesn't have a airport, nearest airport is Chennai so one can reach Chennai by air and then take a cab/bus to Pondicherry.
- If you planning to select Trains, as I did then Pondicherry does have a Railway Station so one can travel directly otherwise Chennai is the nearest most approachable railway station.
- By bus, Pondicherry is well connected by buses from Bangalore and Chennai.
We left Pune at 7 PM and reached Chennai next day at 4 PM. Then we booked an Ola outstation and reached Pondicherry at 9 PM. Since we were really tired so we slept like babies that night.
