Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Bring the kids along to Marina Beach and The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sea Shore Temple and Monuments at Mahabalipuram. Venture out of the city with trips to Covelong Beach (in Covelong), Mahabalipuram (Srinithi Art Gallery, Mahishasuramardini Cave, & more) and DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu). There's still lots to do: browse the different shops at Express Avenue Mall, get a taste of the local shopping with Phoenix Marketcity, take a stroll through Pondy Bazaar, and steep yourself in history at Kapaleeshwarar Temple.
