This place is ever busy! Right from 5 am the locals come here for morning walk/run. Moreover, it has many quaint cafes, handmade artifacts shops and French buildings. The promenade is a feeling which has to be experienced by going there.

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
