Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Get out of town with these interesting Chennai side-trips: Mahabalipuram (Krishna's Butter Ball, Monuments at Mahabalipuram, & more). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kapaleeshwarar Temple, see the interesting displays at Vivekananda House- Multimedia Cultural Museum, stroll through Besant Nagar Beach, and enjoy the sand and surf at Marina Beach.

For other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Chennai online trip maker .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
