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 Marina Beach and The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology. Get out of town with these interesting Chennai side-trips: Mahabalipuram (Krishna's Butter Ball, Monuments at Mahabalipuram, & more). It doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kapaleeshwarar Temple and enjoy the sand and surf at Besant Nagar Beach.

To find photos, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Chennai trip itinerary planner.

In September, plan for daily highs up to 39°C, and evening lows to 29°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
