Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Family-friendly places like The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology and Elliot's Beach will thrill your kids. Explore Chennai's surroundings by going to Mahabalipuram (Arjuna's Penance, Krishna's Butter Ball, & more) and DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Marina Beach, take in the spiritual surroundings of Shirdi Sai Baba Temple, kick back and relax at Besant Nagar Beach, and browse the different shops at Express Avenue Mall.

In September, daytime highs in Chennai are 39°C, while nighttime lows are 29°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
