Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Vadapalani Murugan Temple and Elliot's Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chennai: Kanchipuram (Varatha raja perumal temple, Sri Varadharaja Perumal Temple, &more). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kalikambal Temple, get a taste of the local shopping with Phoenix Marketcity, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and take a stroll through Mylapore.

To see more things to do, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Chennai trip itinerary site.

Only one word accurately describes India's commercial capital Mumbai: big.
Get in touch with nature at Kharghar Hills and Pandavkada Falls. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bhaja Caves and Louisa Point. Get out of town with these interesting Mumbai side-trips: Upvan Lake (in Thane), Navi Mumbai (Kharghar Valley Golf Course, Shilp Chowk, &more) and Reversing Station (in Khandala). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Kanheri Caves, cruise along Marine Drive, appreciate the history behind Gateway of India, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Babulnath Temple.
