Pondicherry Tour Packages

Pondicherry is the capital and the largest city of the Union territory of Puducherry which was a French colony until 1954 and this is forever a major highlight in Pondicherry tour packages. Fondly known as Pondy, this coastal town India struggles to preserve what little remains of the ambiance once created by a unique mix of cultural heritage. This is one of the biggest reasons for Pondicherry to attract tourists not only from India but all over the world. 

It is a quaint, calm and tranquil place with bunches of bougainvilleas, leafy boulevards, mustard colored colonial homes and crumbling cathedrals. Pondicherry, which sits on the Bay of Bengal, is a great place to unwind where you can take advantage of yoga and meditation as well as just enjoying pottery or sitting by the beach. The quiet beaches which stretch north and south are great for swimming and sunrise strolls.

Pondicherry is a place with pretty landscapes – the tree lined avenues are a visual treat. The French Quarter is something you must visit in Pondicherry. It is uniquely built on the French grid pattern and the French influence is unmistakable. The streets have French names; the villas are built in French style. The calmness during the afternoon siesta, the bicycles on the streets shows French connections. Pondicherry has the typical Indian touch too, with colorful festivals being celebrated throughout the year.

 Tourists have the choice of boarding and lodging in either hotels or holiday homes with prices ranging from two thousand rupees upwards. So if you are on a budget holiday you still have no problem, more so because navigating is either free on foot or cheap on a bicycle.

If you are a foodie and like to go beyond the usual Indian cuisine there is a variety to choose from. Ranging from lasagna, lobsters, baguettes, waffles, crepes, and cheesecakes, name them and you will get them in the restaurants of Pondicherry.

By booking the Pondicherry holiday packages, one can visit temples, churches, and museums, go for bike or nature and wildlife tours and for scuba and snorkeling even if there is not much of a variety.
