Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Head to Apollo Books and Pondy Bazaarfor plenty of shopping. Escape the urban bustle at The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology and Marina Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Mahabalipuram (Monuments at Mahabalipuram, Sea Shore Temple, & more) and Covelong Beach (in Covelong). And it doesn't end there: browse the different shops at The Forum Vijaya Mall, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Vadapalani Murugan Temple, and enjoy the sand and surf at Besant Nagar Beach.

For other places to visit, photos, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Chennai trip planner.

In December, daily temperatures in Chennai can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
