Chennai (Madras)

Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Bring the kids along to Madras Crocodile Bank and Elliot's Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Mahabalipuram (Pancha Rathas, Sea Shore Temple, & more). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Marina Beach, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sri Parthasarathy Temple, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and kick back and relax at Besant Nagar Beach.
