1) ADVENTURE: Dare yourself with some adventure in Pondy. Scuba diving is one of the most opted "things to do" by tourist. There are few operators who help you with proper training, equipment & certificate. Spare half day for training before you dive inside to see beautiful corals with your bare eyes.
Apart from this adrenaline sports there are jet skiing, kayaking, riding on the boat in backwater, camping that can be done on Paradise beach.
#TravelLikeAPro: Wildlife Photographers are always on adventure. Bird watching is best at Ousteri Lake. Hop in on the boat & start filling you SD card with lots of photographs.
2) ARCHAEOLOGY: Arikamedhu, acres of land under the Archaeological Survey of India, is excavated. In early days, Arikamedhu was a trade house to Greeks for gems, beads & other megalithic stones. 4 kms away from Pondicherry, you can unfold the history of trading with Greeks.
A glimpse Arikamedhu can also be found in the museum in Pondicherry too.
#TravelLikeAPro: (As usual) Photography is not allowed inside the museum.
3) FRENCH INFLUENCE IN INDIA: Pondicherry is one of the city where French anchored their existence in India. White town is the city center with ravishing church, French architect, symmetrically planned avenues & streets, brightly painted houses,crawling bougainvillea's & gratifies all over makes it look more vibrant. The parallel running coastline is the USP for many cafe's as it gives stunning view of the sea.
Tootle around on the bike or pedal the bicycle or just a stroll on Rock beach, you will only be astonished with the beauty.
#TravelLikeAPro : Vehicles are not allowed after 7 pm till 7 am next day on the beach road/ Goubert Avenue.
