1.PALLAVARAM HILLS

Pallavaram is about 18 kilometers away from heart of the city.Many people do not know that they can can actually trek and ride to top of the hill.It has the perfect view of the airport and the hustle bustle city.If you go early morning you could see few athletes practicing.But do not visit this place in dark because its not safe and moreover atop the hill there is an radio transmission station for military purpose.So i suggest you not to travel beyond the gate you could see once you reach the top.The ideal time to visit this place is Early morning.

2.CHEMBARAMBAKKAM LAKE

Chembarambakkam lake is about 25 kilometers away from the city.It is one of the biggest supplier of drinking water to the city.Its actually so big that one cant see its end when its fully filled(i.e during monsoon season).This is the best place in the city to witness sunset.So the most idea time is the late evenings.Its better to leave the place before it gets dark as the place will be filled with many insects and flies.The nearest bus stand is nazarathpet bus stand.

When it comes to beach everyone would always think about marina beach.Its too much crowded and mainstream.So if you want to experience a new type of beach then straightly head to this place.Its about 8 km's away from marina beach and you could access to the end of this via your bike itself.This place is ideal both mornings and evenings.you could get to watch the fishing boats going to and fro from the sea.
