    I am putting some plans together to go to Pondicherry, a lot of the things have got sorted out, now all I need to do is choose the hotel. This is only possible if I find out which places are good to stay in Pondicherry.

    Sometimes you get hotels in places where there is absolutely nothing, which I don't want, I would rather be in a touristy area and have easy access to shops and restaurants, and not to mention the beach as well.
