Very good advice. Could be more detailed. - By Priya Rai - See this trip
I thoroughly enjoyed my trip and found Anu's advice very helpful in choosing the right places to stay and planning my time. I did feel that I needed to prod for details sometimes (like bike rental place or things to see in the Tamil Quarter or transport options for Mahabalipuram, etc) It would be excellent if Anu had thought of some of these herself and given details before I asked for them - because sometimes as a visitor I might not know what questions to ask, and it would be good to know that the Travel Ninja is thinking for us. But overall, I'm really happy. Highly recommended.

Itinerary: 5 Days in Pondicherry

I'm going to Pondicherry for 5 days from Dec 24-Dec 29 alone. I'm going from Bangalore. I'm looking forward to exploring Pondicherry's French Quarter, shopping, spending some time in Auroville (take a meditation course if possible). I'd like to stay in one of the heritage properties but not splurge too much (up to Rs 5k per night is ok). Also note that I'm a single girl, travelling alone. So any safety advice is appreciated.
