A Visit to the French Colony- Puducherry.

This Christmas was exciting and different because we went traveling to  Puducherry.

How to reach there from Mumbai \Pune.

Take a flight from Mumbai to Chennai and if traveling from Pune also take a flight from Pune to Chennai. One can also travel by train from  Mumbai to  Chennai and Pune to Chennai. After landing at  Chennai airport hire a taxi to go to Puducherry.  It takes three hours from Chennai to Puducherry by road.
