Day 1

The deal was too good to be true.( Thanks to Yatra coupons and my deal hunting skills 😁) The room was top notch and so was their restaurant.

Pune has been one of my favourite cities since the very first visit. Full of young faces and enthused chatter, it soon transfers its vibrance to you. Koregaon Park is allegedly the most Porsche area and I'd been planning to spend a day or two there since long. However, being located in the main area most of the hotels there were extremely expensive, or so I thought. I got a deal where I got the beautiful Sunderban Resort and Spa just at ₹900 per nights! Read along to find out about our stay there.

The highlight of our stay was the delicious and healthy breakfast spread that came as a package deal during the hotel booking. Their restaurant, Sante has an exclusively low calorie menu with relishing delicacies. Would strongly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

I've been a fan of the FC Road market since forever, much like any other girl who has visited it. It comes only second to Sarojini Market in terms of its huge variety and affordable rates. It has a wide range of footwear, accessories, tops, scarves, mobile covers et al to choose from. Definitely not to be missed by any shopaholic.

Another area usually flocked by youngsters is MG Road. It is home to long caravans of food stalls offering delicious food with huge servings. Pune's Chocolate Sandwich is a personal favourite and definitely not to be missed.

Day 2

We decided to dedicate this day entirely to a food walk and explore various delicacies in different restaurants and cafes.

It was a small unassuming restaurant in a line of Porsche cafes and bars and that was precisely the reason that drew us here. We were blown away by the food. It was extremely tasty and filling and came at superb rates. Definitely try out this place if you happen to be in Pune.

This was a tiny kiosk that specializes in fruit based desserts. We ordered a strawberry dessert that had layers of chopped strawberries and whipped cream. Too delicious!

We decided to try some fusion food next and trust me Pune has something for every palette. Had the most amazing Chocolate Paan and Chocolate Sandwich here. ( Yes you guessed it right. I am a devout chocoholic )

This vinatage cafe had simple interiors and decor but was still super jam packed. The reason being their delicious food in unexpectedly budget friendly rates.
