Detroit of South Asia

Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India. Scenic stretches of sand line the city coast, not safe for swimming but great for relaxing walks, while landmark buildings, parks, temples, and nature reserves provide plenty of opportunities for sightseeing in Chennai. Although not a party destination, the sprawling metropolis offers visitors a wide assortment of restaurants, malls, art galleries, and charming handicraft shops. Chennai is in Chennai District. When using our India trip itinerary planner , you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
