And am sure u would too… With perfect sea, sand & sun- who wouldnt?…
Located about 150 Kms from Chennai- Pondicherry was a French occupied city & there are still a lot of French influence in the culture there. Nothing stands out as prominent as the strange hats of the policemen there:-)
The Drive from Chennai to Pondicherry is amazing on the wonderful ECR (East Coast Road)- with the highway running parallel to the sea for most part of it.
Most tourists to Pondicherry are attracted by the famous Aurobindo Ashram, but my fave excuse was brunch at Rendevous. Do check out the two famous Churches there- some inspiring architecture & stained glass work.
