Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chennai: Mahabalipuram (Krishna's Butter Ball, Monuments at Mahabalipuram, & more) and DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Marina Beach, look for gifts at Pure Pearls, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sri Parthasarathy Temple, and stroll through Besant Nagar Beach.

To find reviews, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Chennai online route maker .

In November in Chennai, expect temperatures between 35°C during the day and 26°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
