Things to do in Pondicherry
A stark contrast of most other Indian cities which either retain their historic charm of various Indian empires or the colonial look left by the British, Pondicherry attractions are dominated by French structures due to French colonial rule which started in the 1600s. France were the smallest colonial power in India due to their late entry into the game, thus only having a few cities compared to other European powers. Beaches, colonial architecture and local cultural activities are some of the things to do in Pondicherry. With the relative smaller number of attractions, most travelers turn to the backstreets to peer into the culture, traditions and art of the interesting French-Indian mix in Pondicherry. Find some of the best things to do in Pondicherry with local art associations and individual guides and leave with a unique memory.
