  • Stop at one of the roadside eateries or restaurants along the way for a quick breakfast.
  • En route from Chennai to Pondicherry, the road winds through verdant landscapes dotted with swaying palm trees and tranquil lakes. As you traverse the scenic East Coast Road, the sight of the shimmering waters of the Bay of Bengal on one side and lush green fields on the other creates a breathtaking panorama, offering a serene escape from bustling city life.
  • Reach Pondicherry by late morning or early afternoon.
  • Auroville: Head straight to Auroville, an international township known for its spiritual significance. Spend some time exploring the Matrimandir and its surroundings.
  • Lunch in Auroville or White Town: Enjoy lunch at one of the restaurants in Auroville or White Town, the French Quarter of Pondicherry. You'll find plenty of options offering French, Indian, and fusion cuisines.
  • Auroville Beach or Promenade Beach: Depending on your preference, visit either Auroville Beach or Promenade Beach for some relaxation and beach activities. You can take a leisurely stroll, soak in the sun, or enjoy water sports if available.
  • White Town Exploration: Spend some time exploring the charming streets of White Town. Admire the colonial architecture and visit boutiques, art galleries, and heritage buildings.
  • Take some time for shopping in Pondicherry. Explore local markets like Mission Street, Nehru Street, and MG Road for handicrafts, clothing, and souvenirs.
  • Botanical Gardens or Bharathi Park: Visit the Botanical Gardens or Bharathi Park for a serene experience amidst nature. Enjoy the greenery and unwind before heading back to Chennai.
  • Sunset at Rock Beach: End your day with a mesmerizing sunset at Rock Beach. Spend some time soaking in the beauty of the horizon and the sound of waves crashing against the shore.
