Porur is the ideal place to assemble before you embark on the coastal ride as you take on the east coast road. An early start lets you beat the traffic and witness the sunrise and the gleaming ocean water.
As you take on the east coast road the first pit stop is Mahabalipuram an iconic city to pass by. The ocean on one side and land on the other and riding on the coastal road, surely a movie scene in the making. A host of activities await with scrumptious breakfast options. A visit to the naval museum and lighthouse museum is a must. You can also take a dip at the Mahabalipuram beach. If you are interested in sculptures the museum has some breathtaking artefacts.
The ride on the east coast road is full of surprises. After a visit to an iconic place we come to the most visited union territory of India - Puducherry was also known as Pondicherry. Once known as the French colony in India the culture and influence prevail in the architecture of the place. You may want to try the local french cuisine and admire the colonial era of the french before independence. The architecture ignites the photographer within you with the picturesque background those postcard shots are certainly a keeper.
The east coast road takes a turn into Chidambaram town. You can refuel the bike and stop by for some tea and snacks. The local coffee shops serve some good filter coffee in traditional style. Soak in the aroma. Along the way you shall witness small coastal towns an experience like no other.
As the east coast road turns to a national highway you know that it is Sirkazhi town. The small town nestled in the interior of Tamil Nadu is known for its Agricultural produce. You shall get to see farms and fresh produce on you way stop by for some fresh veggies.
Alas we arrive at Tranquebar. The serene beach welcomes you with the Danish fort, Dansborg making it’s presence felt. From the french culture in Puducherry we visit the Danish culture. The culinary experience is a must try with the visit to the museum and walk to the commander’s house.
