Pondicherry, better known as Pondy, has emerged as the favourite destination in the southern part of India for a staycation. What draws visitors of all age groups to this place is the town’s appealing French connection. Truly an amalgamation of French colonial charm and traditional Tamil Culture.
The rues, boulevards and authentic bakeries will take back in time and let you immerse yourself in the old world charm.
Although Tamil is the native language, the localities find it easy to converse in English.
When to Travel?
Monsoon hits the region late in the year in the month of October and lasts till December. Before monsoon, summer keeps the mercury soaring high. Thereby, January to April invariably becomes the ideal time to explore the Union Territory.
