We left Bangalore early morning at about 4.45 Am and reached Pondicherry at 10.15 Am. Highway is very nice and scenic. The best option is to drive from Bangalore. Most of the road is 6 Lane-4 Lane Highway with tolls. Lot of eating places/dhabas on the way. The route is safe even to travel at night.

Me and my three friends went for a weekend to Pondicherry from Bangalore. We had to stay only for one night at the hotel and mostly we were going to be out on the beach or exploring Pondicherry. So we wanted a budget hotel with a nice and clean room. So we chose this hotel and it was a very...more »

Nice roads and super weather, last 100 odd kms is a single road however did not find it difficult as we did a night journey. Avoid this route as this is a bit confusing after you take the detour from Vellore. Have your GPS on at all times otherwise there is a possibility you may get lost.

All were good except the bus condition. The Government need to repair the buses and bring down high suspension buses as the road condition is not too good. Non of the things of point 6 were available in the bus. And more over at Puducherry KSRTC bus counter the one who gives ticket asked for Rs 150 extra on every ticket saying the counter is not Government. They are agent. Even they asked me the same thing and I didn't pay. I asked them to write the extra amount on the ticket. And they asked me to leave without taking extra amount. So be careful.

As always, these buses never cease to amaze me with their punctuality. The drive was comfortable and I slept through it completely. Considering I could sleep so well on a bus journey, the drive must've been good. Their private and 3+1 sleeper makes it convenient even for single travellers.

This is a lovely ancient house that has been converted into an inn. It is a cosy place to stay at, especially in the rooftop rooms. There's a terrace and a balcony with a cute little swing, where you can sit and read a book or listen to music. I remember sitting in this balcony by the wooden...more »

Bus was good and comfortable seating!! The travel was good and bus quality was also good!! It was understandable that the road wasn't very good!! AC is required as it tends to become very hot during summer!! Stops were enough.

The bus gets pretty good reviews online but mostly because the bus is good and because of the convenient pick-up locations. I guess it depends if those things are important.
