In 1979, Japan introduced the concept of capsule, AKA pod hotels, to fight expensive accommodations. The concept became so popular among budget travelers that other countries soon adopted it. In 2017, India finally got its first pod hotel based in Mumbai. As one of the most expensive cities to live in, you can now bunk a pod with minimalist amenities. The 140 pods have been divided into categories, like a couples pod, private pod, and an exclusive women-only pod.

India’s vibrant history has left the locals with little slices of everything foreign. Tucked away in the Southern India is a Puducherry, a city that reeks of traditional France and a three-star hotel that is quintessentially French in its façade and service. The burnt orange color of the building might just remind you of a colonial bygone era.
