Alright ! Before we start imagine goa without all its crowd , noise , expenses . Beautiful right ? Well thats Puducherry for you.
Pondicherry is a beautiful place on the southeastern coast of india,a perfect getaway for the weekend. I visited in October month with my friends to spend a peaceful weekend away from the rush of Bangaluru. It was sunny rounded so we prepared to get toasted. The best way to reach Pondicherry is by train. We booked a train ticket in sleeper class from Bangalore to Pondicherry which costed us around 260 rupees, this was the cheapest and comfortable way to reach Pondicherry for us. Bus is also an option which will cost a little more then train.
Our train started around 9:00 pm on Friday night and we reached pondicherry next morning around 7 am. We decided to take auto to our home stay which costed us around 150 rs. We were 5 people and decided to take 2bhk flat which costed each person 350 per day which was quite cheap and near to our all places places. Plus Homestay gives you that vibe of vacay which one can't get from hotel rooms .
We ordered our breakfast and planned how we would covered the Pondicherry in 2 days . we decided with cover far off places in first day for which we took scoty which costed us around 350 +150 per scooty for 24 hours and second day will cover near by places.
Pondicherry is everything you want from a weekend gateway with friends, family or just a solo trip. Silent sea, vintage Streets , inclusive culture. Everything just comes together and soothes the mind. A trip you should already start preparing .
