    Hi folks,

    I'm planning for a road trip for my wedding anniversary from Bangalore and would like to know your views and experiences to finalize the destination, route planning and suggestions on best resorts to stay.

    The destination I've in mind are
    1. Pondicherry
    2. Rameshwaram
    3. Munnar

    I'm open for suggestions regarding destination.

    My main criteria are
    - Scenic and good road condition
    - Good stay as I'm carrying my year old son too

    Thank you in advance and looking forward.

    Well, i have travelled to Munnar many years back, but i think given your tight schedule of 4 days, its a good choice. Driving will consist of normal roads and ghat sections too. Its a good destination for relaxation.

    I would suggest Pondicherry, as it is around 380 kms and I did this trip 2 weeks back with my wife & 4 yrs old daughter.
    The road is excellent all the way to Pondi.
    I stayed in "Grand Serena Resort" in Pondi. Its outside Pondi. You would get this resort 2 kms before you reach Pondi. Excellent place, no city traffic... Super resort, Super swimming pool, food.

    Even though Pondi is a coastal city, there is 0 kms of Ghat section. Free of Ghat.. :) Easy on your family

    Hi

    When are you planning to travel?


    Because currently Pondy and Rameshwaram(Coastal areas) are fully affected by rain!

    Check the weather conditions and plan your travel.

    Thanks everyone. I'm overwhelmed..

    Vinit, I will definitely check your suggestion.

    Vignesh, I'm planning for Dec 9th to 12th. You're right, I'll have to see weather forecasting..

    Hi Prithviraj,

    Please ensure you make a checklist well in advance for all you need for the car. There is a separate thread for this as well.

    Enjoy your vacations!!

    Sure thing Dhruv. Also by any chance if anyone here knows the weather condition in Munnar..I'm not sure if Chennai situation has any impact on munnar.

    Hi Prithviraj,

    From the locations from your list, you have to opt for Munnar only as the other two areas have high rain threat in yhe coming days(Full coastal TN).

    So, check the weather situation of Munnar and plan accordingly.

    Enjoy the trip!

    True. Have finally decided on Munnar.

    All the liquids are in good shape although I'm carrying coolant with me just as a precaution..

    All set for the trip tomorrow.

    Thanks guys.
