Home to a multicultural population, Chennai, the capital of Tamil Nadu, is a historical city of contrasts.
Scorching hot during summer and unbelievably crowded, it is steeped in tradition yet charmingly modern and cheerful. Chennai never disappoints its visitors. If you only have 24 hours in Chennai use your time to savour piping hot filter coffee, explore the streets of gully cricket, experience hot street food, and learn new dimensions of culture of the city. You have no time to waste, so get yourself a car and a driver who knows how to best guide you around Chennai!
Chennai and Pondicherry have always been in my list of favourite destinations.
It's only a little more than an 5 hour's journey by train to Chennai from Bangalore.Me and my best friend took Lalbagh Express (12608) from Bangalore station at 06:30 AM.It reached Chennai Central railway station at 12:30 PM . The moment we landed, we navigated to our hotel which was a few meters away from Chennai central railway station.
We checked in, had a quick breakfast, took shower and straightly head to MGR memorial .
