French Touch In Pondicherry

  • Mahabalipuram

  • Botanical Garden

  • Auroville

  • Pondicherry

Welcome To Pondicherry

Pondicherry, or Puducherry, commonly referred to as just Pondy, is a former French colony and one of the best places to glimpse colonial heritage. The French Quarter, with tree-lined streets, mustard-coloured villas and cafes exuding the aromas of mouth-watering delicacies, is the ideal place to experience the lingering French influence. Another fascinating draw is Auroville. Between the food, the shopping, the beaches, the ashrams, and the general sense of tranquility, Pondicherry has something for everyone. Consider this the perfect location to unwind from life’s demands.

  • What does twin share price mean?

    Twin share price is the price mentioned against a package and it refers to the cost per head for a double sharing accommodation. If you'd like to upgrade to Single Occupancy, please select this at the time of checkout
  • Regarding the hotels, what does OR SIMILAR refer to?

    OR SIMILAR means that the hotel booked might be different from the hotel mentioned in the itinerary. 90% of the time we book the hotel that’s mentioned, but under few situations it might differ due to on-the-ground factors. So we pick an alternate hotel, but always in the same class and area of the city.
