Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Kids will enjoy Marina Beach and The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology. Change things up with these side-trips from Chennai: Mahabalipuram (Monuments at Mahabalipuram, Sea Shore Temple, & more) and DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kapaleeshwarar Temple, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, contemplate the long history of Fort St. George, and pause for some serene contemplation at San Thome Church.

In December, daily temperatures in Chennai can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 25°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
