This place used to be paradise .............. now it is haunted by beggar gangs, touts especially in the northern part .

Still it is not too late to revive it.

The promenade is one place that you will remember for a long time. It is in the french quarter of Pondicherry. The best time to visit is in the evening after 6pm, When the road is blocked for traffic. You can just sit there and enjoy the breeze and forget all your troubles.

Wonderful place to relax. Traffic is not allowed from 6PM to 8AM and one can see a lot of people walking, exercising and relaxing - even late in the night. Seems safe as one can see families and couples even at mid night. Lot of stray dogs though. The sidewalks are well maintained. Definitely as place to laze around and chat up.

Not much to do here but its just what a couple needs to spend their holiday. Rocky beach with access to the classic french colony and the restaurants is ideal place for hanging out and relaxing.
