Formerly known as Madras, flights to Chennai take you to the forth-largest city in India and the business heart of the country.
A stroll along Chennai’s Pondy Bazaar and Ranganathan Street will give you a real feel for this unusual city as hundreds of locals bustle around the market stalls, bargaining for knick-knacks and exotic spices. Breath in the aroma of incense and take in the vibrant colours of the tiny shops around Kapaleeshwarar Temple.
To escape the crowds, pack a picnic and head for Marina or Elliot’s Beach, both favourites among the locals and the perfect places to cool off on a hot Indian summer’s day.
Chennai may not have the lure of Mumbai or the lush landscapes of Darjeeling but to visit Chennai is to explore a side of India well off the tourist trail and a unique part of this ultimately, enigmatic country.
