Chennai

Hotels in Chennai

Bright, bold, and bustling, the city formerly known as Madras offers visitors a true South Indian experience.

Chennai is packed with lively street markets, intriguing colonial history, and lots of beautiful temples and monuments. It’s also home to a thriving art scene, high end restaurants, and some seriously glamorous hotels. The city also boasts the longest natural urban beach in India, the 8.1 mile long Marina. This is the perfect place to cool off if the southern heat becomes a bit too stifling.

One of India’s fastest growing cities, Chennai is seeing a huge amount of growth in its tourism sector too. Boutique hotels and five star resorts have been popping up all over Chennai in the past few years, giving visitors the opportunity to have a truly luxurious experience in the capital of Tamil Nadu. There are still some great accommodation options for budget travellers, with fantastic guesthouses and mid-range hotels to suit the backpacker wallet.

Chennai is a great destination for culture vultures who want to appreciate South Indian artistic and religious traditions. The city boasts a packed calendar of theatrical events and dance performances. Lively festivals take place throughout the year, starting with the Pongal festival of thanks in January and ending with the Karthikai Deepam full moon festival which takes place in November and December. Chennai also has a vibrant film industry, known as Kollywood. Catching a local film in one of the many cinema halls is an absolute must.

Families travelling to Chennai will find plenty to keep their kids entertained. As well as splashing around on the city beaches, there’s also an excellent zoo and a number of great theme parks to spend time in. MGM Dizzee World and Dash ‘n’ Splash are both excellent options for an afternoon of adrenaline seeking.
