Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Take a break from the city and head to The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology and Pancha Pandava Cave. Do your shopping at Phoenix Marketcity and M.Rm.Rm. Cultural Foundation. Get out of town with these interesting Chennai side-trips: Covelong Beach (in Covelong) and Mahabalipuram (Descent Of The Ganges, Srinithi Art Gallery, & more). Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Mylapore, browse the different shops at The Forum Vijaya Mall, enjoy the sand and surf at Marina Beach, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams.
