Tranquebar Experience: Far from the crowds and not a very poular destination but a great place to relax. Road access from Pondicherry and Chennai - barely a single laned road with dangerous truck and bus traffic.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: The fort, some Danish churches and restored houses by Intach which are a revelation.
Activities & things to do: Watch the waves, sit on the ramparts of the fort and thank God that there are no throngs or hordes of tourists and diesel spewing buses.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Road from Chennai and Pondicherry, rail from Bangalore - catch the Mysore - Mayiladuthurai Express ( Mayiladuthurai 45 mins drive)
