During last November, I saw this Long Weekend coming in January and decided to land someplace far from home. Went through IRCTC and Easymytrip, 2 most significant website I refer for commuting in India. I got a deal for Chennai at 4000/- for a to and fro journey from IndioGo and Jet Airways. My cousins were up for this adventure and so were their friends.
On Tripoto itself I saw that Chennai - Pondicherry road trip is one of the scenic road trip in South India. By end of November, all 5 flight tickets were booked on Easymytrip. I had this perception about Pondicherry that it would be a place like Goa. Beaches, shacks, clubs etc. But Pondicherry had something to surprise me. We decided to hire bikes from Chennai as Pondicherry was just 150 kms away and booked OYO room in Chennai followed by a guest house booking in Pondicherry via Cleartrip.
