Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Family-friendly places like The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology and Besant Nagar Beach will thrill your kids. Get out of town with these interesting Chennai (Madras) side-trips: Mahabalipuram (Monuments at Mahabalipuram, Sea Shore Temple, & more). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Marina Beach, identify plant and animal life at Guindy Snake Park, take in nature's colorful creations at The Theosophical Society, and take in the spiritual surroundings of San Thome Church.

To see where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Chennai (Madras) trip itinerary builder tool .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 41°C, and evening lows to 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
