Travelling to Pondicherry from Vellore was a pleasant experience. The taxi operator told that it would take about 2-3 hours - 130 km. In fact we reached within 2. 5 hrs. We started from Vellore at 11:00 Am, after having breakfast. The road was quite smooth - no traffic jam in between. The entry to Pondicherry was slightly slow, but that is expected. On the way, we bought guava - which was excellent. It was just before Pondicherry. By the time we completed Guava, we reached Pondicherry.

After staying in this place, we had only one disappointment - our stay was less. I think this is the only way I could explain the experience. The hotel is located exactly at the seaside. Aurobindo Ashram is within walking distance, the rooms are absolutely clean and the service is excellent....more »

Mode of Transport:Bus
I travelled to Pondicherry in Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation (TNSTC) Bus and it was the worst journey that I ever had. There is no AC bus service to Pondy from Vellore. The roads are worst and the bus is not at all comfortable. It makes us literally cry travelling in such buses.

The mode of visiting Pondicherry was through bus which is the best mode of travelling to this place. Even though the route is a bit bumpy bus travel is frequent also train to Pondicherry is pretty common. There is no official booking in this travels from Vellore to Pondicherry, if you've get the last seat though it is a Volvo bus, you'll have a hard time.
