South Indian spiritualism meets French chic in Pondicherry, an interesting, unusual, and international destination on the Bay of Bengal.
Relax by the water at Rock Beach and Paradise Beach. Get some cultural insight at Eglise de Notre Dame des Anges and Gingee Fort. Change things up with these side-trips from Pondicherry: Mahabalipuram (Monuments at Mahabalipuram, Tiger Cave, & more). There's still lots to do: stop by Kriti Eco Boutique, identify plant and animal life at Sadhana Forest, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, and take in the exciting artwork at Kalinka Art Gallery.

For more things to do and tourist information, go to the Pondicherry road trip site .

Guwahati to Pondicherry is an approximately 6.5-hour combination of taxi and flight. You can also drive; or take a train. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Kodaikanal.

A cool and relaxing hill station, Kodaikanal has long attracted visitors up to its privileged position in the Western Ghats.

There's much more to do: explore the activities along Mannavanur Lake, don't miss a visit to Poombarai Village View, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kurinji Andavar Temple, and examine the collection at Shembaganur Museum of Natural History.
