Bangalore to Pondicherry via the National highway is splendid and truly memorable if there are friends who make it cherishable. Drive at the recommended speeds. Avoid any untoward suggestions of shortcuts since they are muddy at times and make you tired. Stop at frequent intervals for that gulp and hogg. Have your camera handy to capture some really fascinating glimpses.

Having to plan for bright and sunny vacation at the beach with all the fun and frolic from your friends and family members? Pondicherry is by far the best location for you. Sea View Resort, Pondicherry offers you with some of the best amenities which are most laudable.

The National Highway to Chennai and from there to Puducherry is the best option. People confuse you with shortcuts but you will really get irritated if you choose so. Go for the highway, if you donít mind the extra mile in your lovely drive (Your company matters though). Lots of dhabas and hotels for refreshments.

Well we started off from Old madras road to Chittoor and the roads were excellent. Then we took a left turn to Arcot and the roads were being relaid, so excellent roads again. We took 4 hours, including 3 stops (breakfast 45 mins) and from Arcot to Pondi roads are good all they way through.

Boarded Puducherry express from Yeshwantpur and reached Pondicherry by 8 in the morning. Journey was as usual. Travelled in sleeper class. While returning, booked in Chalukya Express, it was waiting list 12 and 13 but on chart preparation it got conformed. De-boarded at K R Puram in the morning at 5'O clock. Overall it was a nice journey especially if you take a train.

Well the bus which we took was from Bangalore. We planned our trip in very short time so we didn't get much option so I think we booked KPN travels bus which was not as good as we expected. It was AC sleeper, but bus was not at all good. While coming back we travelled in Greenline. This was better than KPN. So I highly recommend it.
