Chennai Cricket Holidays & Tours
Sizzling, steamy Chennai, formerly known as Madras, is one of India’s most popular holiday destinations. In 2015 the BBC awarded Chennai ‘hottest city’ status and National Geographic hailed it ‘the second best food city in the world’. So what’s the recipe for Chennai success? It’s a tasty mix of culture, beaches and cuisine. These, allied to Chennai’s role as the ‘Detroit of South Asia’, drive visitors aplenty to a vibrant, lively city.
Chennai is known as the ‘Gateway to South India’ but the city itself is home to an array of attractions. A must-see is the distinctive Kapaleeswarar Temple which dates from the 7th century with the colourful tower at its centre. Chennai’s seaside also beckons, including the dazzling sands of the endlessly epic Marina and unspoilt Breezy Beaches. And for a little respite from the city’s bustling streets just head for the shaded seclusion of Semmozhi Poonga Park.
