Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Vadapalani Murugan Temple and Parthasarathy Temple. Step out of the city life by going to Elliot's Beach and Chennai Turtle Walk. Change things up with these side-trips from Chennai: Kanchipuram (Sri Sathyanathaswami Temple, Sri Varadharaja Perumal Temple, &more). The adventure continues: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kalikambal Temple, don't miss a visit to Indian Institute Of Technology, Madras, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, and catch a movie at The Forum Vijaya Mall.

Only one word accurately describes India's commercial capital Mumbai: big.
Escape the urban bustle at Kharghar Hills and Upvan Lake. Step off the beaten path and head to Bhaja Caves and Worli Sea Face. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Mumbai: Navi Mumbai (Pandavkada Falls & Nerul Balaji Temple), Bhivpuri Waterfall (in Karjat Town) and Gadeshwar Dam (in Panvel). There's lots more to do: Head underground at Kanheri Caves, get great views at Louisa Point, don't miss a visit to Rajabai Clock Tower, and see the interesting displays at Bhau Daji Lad Museum.

For other places to visit, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Mumbai visit planner.

You can fly from Chennai to Mumbai in 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a train. When traveling from Chennai in August, plan for slightly colder days and about the same nights in Mumbai: temperatures range from 86°F by day to 77°F at night. You'll have a few hours on the 13th (Thu) to wrap things up before traveling home.
