Plan Your Chennai Holiday

With so many options when you travel to Chennai, this is a city break which can easily also be a resort holiday by the sea. With stunningly ornate and breathtaking temples to visit, artistic fairs to browse, cool beaches to relax upon and cuisine to cater to every taste, India will remain with you long after you leave.

Because of high humidity and temperatures, the early summer months can be quieter travel periods, but for cooler, yet still hot, days early in the year is a perfect time to travel. Chennai can be affected by monsoons and storms, which generally peak in the late autumn months. In such a bustling atmosphere it is hard to avoid the crowds and tickets to Chennai should be purchased well in advance. Cheap hotels in Chennai are readily available and many luxurious hotels are easily affordable. To find the best flight deals to Chennai, be sure to check our Deals section.
