Chennai — 4 nights

Detroit of South Asia

Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Escape the urban bustle at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Chetpet EcoPark. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Elliot's Beach and Ayappan Temple. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Arulmigu Aadhi Vyadhi Hara Bhaktha Anjaneyar Temple, pause for some serene contemplation at Armenian Church, enjoy the sand and surf at Breezy Beach, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Marina Beach.
