      Hi, Chennai VT,

      Is it easy to flag and board an ordinary taxi in Eillot's Beach and anywhere else in India without calling a taxi in advance? Will taxi drivers without passengers stop to allow passengers to board if passengers flag?

      I just want to avoid the autos.

      Pondicherry Oct 25, 2013 at 9:38 PM

      Day 1:

      Reach Pondicherry early in the morning. Check-in at the hotel and relax.

      Try and get access to Matri Mandir for the next day.

      Visit Auro beach (as we would be staying near auroville only) and spend rest of the day leisurely.

      Day 2:

      Depending upon the success on Day 1, visit Matri Mandir in the morning.

      Post lunch, go to Paradise beach and spend time till evening.

      In the evening, drive through french colony (white town) and surrounding attractions and eat at a nearby place in the town.

      Return back to the hotel post dinner.

      Day 3:

      Start late in the morning, spend some time at the seaside promenade.

      Spend the afternoon in some shopping and some road side eating.

      Return back to the hotel in the evening.

      Post dinner, departure from Pondicherry.

      Time period: 1st Nov - 3rd Nov

      First time in Pondicherry, visiting with MY WIFE.

      How does this look, considering we have a more relaxed holiday in mind, without much of adventure? Am I missing something out here?
