The Ultimate Guide to Pondicherry

The Ultimate Guide to Pondicherry, Pondicherry, India (B)

Pondicherry was like a dream. A beautiful dream full of clean sandy beaches, laid back colourful streets and European architecture. I kept asking myself ‘am I in India or France?’.

It’s quite a bizarre feeling seeing all French on street signs, cafés and from people’s mouths here! But, the food was to die for. A perfect taste of home and welcome comfort food. They even had a mini Notre-dame; but here it was a lovely shade of salmon pink and was framed with palm trees.

It was like it had it’s own mood, a rhythm. As you walk around the laid back atmosphere is catching. The people are so friendly and it’s far less touristy than Goa in the West.

This was one of my favourite places in South India. So without further ado, here’s the ultimate guide to Pondicherry!
