Things to do in Pondicherry

Pondicherry or Pondi, as it is called affectionately, was under mostly French rule for almost 250 years. Pondi has managed to retain a major part of it’s French culture. When I look back, I only remember sprawling courtyards, colorful walls, plentiful flowers, cute cafes and a romantic promenade. You can sit back in a cute little cafe and devour a croissant or walk around the flower laden streets. Better yet, rent a bicycle and blend in with the locals.
