Pondicherry is a small French town on the Coramandel coast, just 3 hours away from Chennai and around 6000 miles from France. Mostly known for its architecture and beaches, Pondicherry is a perfect weekend getaway.
How to get there
The best way to reach there is to drive via East coast road from Chennai. So we also landed on the Chennai airport and took Zoomcar which is easily available in most of the metro cities in India. Also having car of your own helps you explore more freely and anytime. So it’s always a plus.
The road is just amazing in terms of the scenic beauty with Bay of Bengal on to your left amidst the coconut trees.
There are various other attraction which come on the way from Chennai to Pondicherry, so its better to keep room for some extra time as it took us almost 6 hours to cover 170 kms which one can cover in almost two and a half hours’ time. I travelled in the month of April and to be true it’s not a very good time to travel as it mostly very hot and humid.
