We've used Bus facility and started on Friday evening and reached Puducherry by Saturday early morning.
1. Book yourself a scooter or Navi from a lot of vendors near Orleanpet ( where the main bus stand is).
2. Book yourself a good french hostel near to the Promenade beach.
3. Create an itenary and stick to it :p . Excluding breakfast, lunch and dinner as we find many lovely places which I will be listing them below.
PS : We've booked a Scuba-diving event with TEMPLE ADVENTURES CLUB which is one of the PADI certified Institutes and you'll have a great experience with the group leaders and founder. They have a great Hospitality there.
Coming to the Start of the trip ,
We've reached St.LAURENT AUROVILLE GUEST HOUSE which is just 30 mts away from Promenade beach in the French colony. It's a funky hostel, french library, fridge and all other cooking facilities and they also have a clothing and souvenir shop under your hostel.
We checked in and started searching for the breakfast and ended up having gelato at GMT Ice creams near by. We've settled in hostel and dropped our luggage, freshened up to start exploring the city. We've had our lunch at CELINE'S KITCHEN (it's an open-air cafe and with lovely food. You can die after having their risotto. They even had many other foods from Continental- cuisine. We've started exploring nearby kitchens for food to have upcoming days and ended up making itenary for following days. We've had dinner at Orleanpet at small roadside place at the end of our exploration of city.
