Chennai — 5 nights

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 Sri Ramakrishna Math. Get in touch with nature at Marina Beach and Besant Nagar Beach. Go for a jaunt from Chennai to Mahabalipuram to see Wide Beach about 1h 40 min away. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Shirdi Sai Baba Temple, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, wander the streets of Mylapore, and buy something for everyone on your list at Express Avenue Mall.
