Chennai Holidays

Holidays in Chennai

Previously known as Madras, the bustling port of Chennai has a rich heritage of arts and culture. Home to temples, churches and Fort St George, keen shoppers will find a wide range of silks, cottons, handicrafts and jewelry.

Founded in 1639 by the East India Company, Chennai has grown from a small British settlement to become India’s fourth largest city; today traditional co-exists alongside modern throughout this hectic city.  A major draw is its long beachfront on the Bay of Bengal, but there are also plenty of temples, historical and culturally significant sites to visit. Browse the markets of Georgetown or take a sunset stroll along Marina Beach. With direct flights from the UK Chennai is an easy gateway into Southern India and an ideal starting point for tours.
