Chennai (Madras) ©
Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Venture out of the city with trips to DakshinaChitra Museum (in Muttukadu), Mahabalipuram (Krishna's Butter Ball, Arjuna's Penance, & more) and Kovalam Fish Market (in Kovalam). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Madras Crocodile Bank, enjoy the sand and surf at Besant Nagar Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at The Theosophical Society, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kapaleeshwar Temple.

For where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Chennai (Madras) trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Chennai International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 85°F in December, and nighttime lows around 71°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
