Chennai, a city hailed for its vibrant atmosphere and historic attractions, remains one of the most visited places in India.
Step off the beaten path and head to Elliot's Beach and St. Thomas Mount National Shrine. Get in touch with nature at Besant Nagar Beach and Wide Beach. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Shirdi Sai Baba Temple, wander the streets of Mylapore, and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.

For more things to do, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Chennai driving holiday planner.

Washington DC, USA to Chennai is an approximately 23-hour flight. You'll lose 10.5 hours traveling from Washington DC to Chennai due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Washington DC in August, expect Chennai to be a bit warmer, temps between °F and °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Fri) early enough to travel to Mumbai.
