I enjoy my trips to Chennai. I have a couple of my fav hotels where I stay, love the food and shopping scenes. They have some amazing shopping malls with great cinemas too. While there, I also visit some of my favorite temples.

Chennai is a great Metropolitan city. It’s safe and cosmopolitan with lots of things to do and many shops.

Saw a few highlights of the city during a festival period, which made it much more fun. The temples are beautiful, but the bronze museum is sorely lacking. The city seems to be a mess, however the people were friendly.


The city is so huge.. So crowded .. So hot .. Different people , different languages , different culture .. Different types of food which taste so good in and around the city .. Nice to enjoy with family and friends ..
