The prtomenade is a beautiful place for an evening walk, and a strange but very pleasant place after all the hectic in other places in India. Try to find the ' petanque' court!

Yes, you surely can do it. I guess you arrive by train 10.30 to Pondy. Using 3-wheelers you can visit all the places in your list and spen in all of them some hours. Pondy is small, 30 - 40 minutes btw the destinations
