It's time to walk barefoot on the beach again. It's time to visit a corner of India that is forever French. It's time for a leisurely weekend at Pondy.
About the destination: Pondicherry is a French colonized town located on the East coast. The town was the French settlement for more than 350 years and the breeze of the French history is still felt in the streets of Pondicherry. The colonial architecture with tall Yellow painted buildings & beautiful streets will pose for good pictures of your camera. The beautiful beaches, the French-Italian-Tamil cuisines, good French bakeries, shopping and some good drinks are the trend that makes people enjoy the complete experience in Pondicherry.
