A small coastal city and former French colony steeped in a history of trade and war, today the Union Territory of Puducherry (formerly Pondicherry) offers a tranquil trip to the past. French architecture, beaches, classical statues, an experimental 1960s harmony township, and an important ashram all make excellent additions to a Puducherry itinerary. A stretch of 18th-century colonial mansions along tree-lined boulevards displays unmistakable French influence, while other attractions include the city's 32 churches and an early 19th-century lighthouse. Puducherry's lower tax on alcoholic beverages makes it a popular weekend escape, and one of the most touristic destinations in South India. Try the steak and wine, served everywhere.
