It takes around 10 to 12 hours by bus, from Bangalore you can fly if you want but a rode travel is just too good to resist. Opt for sleeper bus so that you can lay at night and enjoy your trip. Roads are not really great but still you can have a joy ride, as I did. Morning you open your eyes to see mesmerising sunrise by the beach. Worth it!!

If you are fan of off beat places then Pondicherry is one for you. Quite beaches laid back people just add the right amount of fund to this place. I was really tired and bored of all the malls and night life so I decided to head to Pondicherry one weekend.

The drive to Pondicherry is really beautiful as most part of it is covered in the Golden Quadrilateral. The entire distance can be covered in around 6 hours. The stretch between Krishnagiri and Vellore is very scenic and beautiful surrounded by tall mountains on all sides. However this stretch doesn't have any decent veg restaurant whereas there are lot of options between Krishnagiri and Hosur.

Travelling by my own car gave us the freedom of exploring the places in Pondicherry at our own pace and will.

The highway is nice with around 100 km of single road. The single road is bad in parts but overall it's a good drive. There is a right turn from the main national highway around 130 km before Pondicherry and there are no sign boards, so you gotta be careful.

Advise: Use Maps.

The bus was in a horrible condition. Driving was very harsh. Couldn't sleep. Most of the time we spent in rolling from one end to other on the sleeper. The staff at Pondicherry were totally indifferent. They just don't bother to answer your questions. Summary : Don't travel by SRS Travels to Pondicherry!!

I had gone to Pondicherry from Bangalore by taxi last month. I wanted to go from any SUV but as it wasn't available, I had to go with an Indica Taxi. But as the road was awesome smooth, I had no problems at all! We left from Bangalore at the night and reached next day morning. I booked a hotel there for a day and went for the purpose I had been there. I could finish it soon so I went to the beach that day afternoon. It was awesome! Wonderful beach! Then evening I went back and at night, we again prepared for journey and came back to Bangalore. It was an awesome experience!
