The city formerly known as Madras, Chennai on the Bay of Bengal and is one of India’s leading cities alongside Mumbai, New Delhi and Kolkata.

Very good food which is neatly served. Will suggest all to try Fish Tawa Roast. U will love that for sure!!!


Back to Chennai for work again! Sight and sound Chennai revisited. This trip is for a longer period of time. Taken infront of an earth pot stall seller. Accordingly, the floral colorful pots are the must have for wedding ceremony. The pot is filled with 9 type of grains as some form of symbolism. Full of local flavor!

Like to see different cultures and customs. I was there 5 months visiting my daughter and had a great time. But it did make me appreciate the U.S. more too.


The least expensive month is February, with an average of AED 140 per night. The most expensive month to stay in Chennai is November, with an average price of AED 179 per night.
The average price of a hotel in March last year was AED 169 per night. This is 1% more than the average nightly price of AED 167 seen over the previous 12 months.
