Pune City Travel Guide

Fondly known as ‘the Oxford of the East’, Pune travel offers the visitor an enchanting mix of history, culture, cuisine and attitude. People from around the world flock here to study at the University or seek a life of spiritual bliss at the Osho Commune. Today we find Pune as a bustling, cosmopolitan city dotted with tree-lined avenues, gardens, stately buildings and commercial areas. It is also one of the few cities that still retains much of its small-town charm by day, and exudes a big-city vibrancy after dusk
