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. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chennai: DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu), Mahabalipuram (Sea Shore Temple, Krishna's Butter Ball, & more) and Covelong Beach (in Covelong). Spend the 20th (Wed) exploring nature at Guindy National Park. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Kapaleeshwarar Temple, look for all kinds of wild species at Chennai Turtle Walk, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Arulmigu Sri Muppathamman Temple, and browse the different shops at Express Avenue Mall.

Find out how to plan Chennai trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

In March, plan for daily highs up to 39°C, and evening lows to 27°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
