This beach town has no dearth of options, whether you are a luxury traveler or someone with a minimalist approach to travel. But what if we told you that there’s actually a place in Pondicherry
where you could stay for almost nothing? We’re talking about this Union Territory’s best-known landmark, the Auroville Ashram. Staying and volunteering at Auroville costs a negligible amount money, but does require commitment. You have to help out with the running of the ashram, which includes cleaning and even farming. Not only do you get to earn your keep, you also get to experience a natural way of living that money can’t buy.
If that’s not your scene, the other thing that’s popular in Pondicherry is dirt-cheap alcohol
! So, either way, you won’t go home disappointed.
