Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Attractions like The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology and Marina Beach make great kid-friendly stops. Venture out of the city with trips to DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu) and Mahabalipuram (Krishna's Butter Ball, Varaha Cave Temple, & more). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Besant Nagar Beach, pause for some serene contemplation at San Thome Church, enjoy the sand and surf at Elliot's Beach, and take a stroll through Mylapore.

To find other places to visit, maps, photos, and tourist information, go to the Chennai day trip planning website .

In October, plan for daily highs up to 38°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
