Regarded as the keeper of South Indian traditions, Chennai is a laid-back city on the Bay of Bengal. Joining a knowledgeable guide, explore what locals love so much about their tropical home town. Your adventure starts at Fort St. George, a local hub due to its historic influence. Funded by the powerful East India Company, it includes an Anglican church and European-style buildings.
The large Government Museum is renowned for its excellent archaeological collection. Marvel at the ancient artifacts in the well-presented halls and stroll through the leafy garden to see the precious red sandstone building of the National Art Gallery.
Old and young come together to enjoy the seaside at vibrant Marina Beach. You arrive at the Mylapore district, the oldest residential section of Chennai, and home to several colorful Tamil Hindu temples. Stand awe-struck in front of the soaring Roman Catholic San Thome Basilica, funded in the 16th century by Portuguese explorers, before your air-conditioned vehicle whisks you back to your hotel's doorstep.
