Pondicherry is what I consider as one of the unexplored and underrated destinations of India. On my first visit to Pondicherry in December 2015, I completely fell in love with this place. I visited again in January 2017 and June 2017 and have been left mesmerized every time. There is something about this small town that makes you want to return here again..!
If you are craving for a laid back vacation and you just want to soothe your nerves after a hectic week, Pondicherry is the place to be. It attracts you with its calm ambience, clean beaches, colorful streets and cafes.
Pondicherry is reachable from Bangalore by bus or train. I have traveled through both for different trips and both the options are very convenient.
