Stay in the White Town
Just choosing to stay in the prime central area of Puducherry will be the best decision ever. You can go the beach multiple times, you can access great cafes and restaurants multiple times a day. That also means, it gives you the flexibility to just sit for hours in between go back to your hotel for freshen up/rest etc. and again get to quickly be in the main vicinity. This way you grab more time to be in the beautiful ambience and save frequent commute time.
Hire a Bike or cycle if not comfortable with walks
Ideally the White Town is best enjoyed by walk. Let’s say in a circumference of 1-5 kms of this French Colony will let you taste the essence of Pondicherry. Based on your convenience rent a two wheeler or a cycle to move around, as four wheeler entry is limited inside this part.
Pack light and flowy clothes
Flowy comfortable dresses works best for the climate in Puducherry, this is also a place where even if you drop in just one pair of clothes, you will be able to easily access the local market which sells clothes suitable for the weather at reasonable price.
