Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Venture out of the city with trips to DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu) and Mahabalipuram (Krishna's Butter Ball, Group of Monuments at Mahabalipuram, & more). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Madras Crocodile Bank, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sri Audikesava Perumal Peyalvar Temple, admire the striking features of San Thome Church, and stroll through Marina Beach.
