Puducherry, a.k.a. Pondicherry, is a perfect weekend gateway to take serene evening walks on the promenade, have a sip of coffee in a cozy cafe while listening to the sound of waves, and enjoy genuine French cuisine with a hint of South India.


Pondicherry is one of the Union Territories and the last French colonies of India. It is an overnight ride from nearby cities like Bengaluru, Mysuru, and Coimbatore. Around Pondicherry, you will find places like Sri Aurobindo Ashram, the ancient ruins of Arikamedu, and Paradise beach.
