Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Relax by the water at Marina Beach and Elliot's Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Chennai side-trips: DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu) and Mahabalipuram (Sea Shore Temple, Monuments at Mahabalipuram, & more). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Besant Nagar Beach, admire the landmark architecture of San Thome Church, identify plant and animal life at The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kapaleeshwar Temple.

To find where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Chennai online vacation planner .

Expect a daytime high around 38°C in October, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Wed) so you can travel back home.
