Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Escape the urban bustle at Besant Nagar Beach and The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Express Avenue Mall and T Nagar, Ranganathan Street. When in Chennai, make a side trip to see DakshinaChitra Museum in Muttukadu, approximately 1h 10 min away. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kapaleeshwarar Temple, stroll through Marina Beach, admire the striking features of San Thome Church, and shop like a local with Phoenix Marketcity.
