I just shifted from Pune to Bengaluru and it was my first weekend here in Bangalore, I was craving to go on a road trip to a South Indian coastal town. After a small research, I didn't take much time to choose Pondicherry as it is the nearest beach destination to Bangalore. It is nearby 300 km from Bangalore which is around 7 hrs journey including food halts.
Pondicherry, also known as Puducherry, is a Union Territory surrounded by the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is one of the few places in India where history meets modernity. It is a lively destination that offers everything like colonial architecture, popular eateries & cafes, rock beach, a beautiful seaside promenade, historic sites & heritage, and more.
I traveled to Pondicherry with my college friends. There are plenty of buses & trains available between the two cities. However, we chose to travel by car for our own comfort. We hired a self-drive car for 2 days from Zoomcar for the road trip.
