Day 1

We took our early morning flight (5:55 am) from delhi to bangalore. We reached bangalore by 8:20 am. After having our breakfast in one of the local shop near the airport itaelf, we hired ola to our friend's house. After some rest we started towards our destination, pondocherry. As we already had a booking in the ksrtc's AC sleeper bus, we took our bus from St. John's Bus stand.  Experience of travelling in the ksrtc bus was awesome. Once you booked your tickets, ksrtc will keep updated you about the bus time table, bus number, and the exact arrival time of bus at your pick up point which is really the best part of their service. We took our bus at 9:53 and the AC sleeper of this bus was much better than any of the train's sleeper coach. Very much comfortable and we took a proper sleep in the bus till we reach pondicherry.

Day 2

Early morning at around 6 am we reached pondicherry. As soon as we reached there, I was so curious to see a beach for the first time. We took a local bus from bus stand to auroville (our first destination). After some rest in hotel, we hired 3 bikes @1200 rupees  to roam around in the city for the whole day. We had our breakfast at one of the local dhaba there. Sambhar, vada, idli, dosa this is all one can find as the main menu in breakfast in south. The food was so tasty and that is in a minimal price. We had around 10-12 dosas, n number of idli and vadas and the total bill cost around us just 400 rupees!

After breakfast, we went to the white town in pondicherry. "White Town" is the French Quarters in Pondicherry primarily the French families still living there and the houses being converted into heritage hotels and restaurants and art galleries. A very well planned clean laid out area with trees providing a continuous shade and buildings dominated with pale yellow color.
