Oh, the South of India! It is Paradise. Join your friends for a rigorous and exhilarating road trip to the South. It is a trip not to be missed. Wouldn't you love to travel among rocky hills for a few hours and then alternately, travel along the road with waves crashing the sides? And, the sunset and sunrise seen from the car on a road trip are no less than Shangri-La.

The stops during our road trip in Dec 2013 were Chennai, BangaloreMysore and Pondicherry.

The ruins of the Temple transport you back to the ancient times. With the sea and sand as the backdrop, the place is just amazing.

The color of the sand is darker than other beaches in Chennai. One would see many food stalls with seafood and peanuts all along the beach. It lures you away and makes you feel like you have always belonged to the seas!

This is the second longest beach in the world. There are resorts and hotels with lip-smacking food. Moreover, there are many other attractions including children's rides in the place. With peppy music, yellow sand, the sun rays on your back and foaming waves, the place is just right for a holiday.

The number of crocodiles will give you goosebumps! What would happen if they came out, eh?

A tour around the city, especially through MG Road of Bangalore would give you the feel of the city. The rose gardens of Lalbagh Botanical Gardens are breathtaking. The city, Asia's IT hub, makes you feel like a techie yourself.

The musical dance of the colorful fountains is something you should not miss. The place is wonderful and it is very soothing, not to mention beautiful.

A 'darshan' of this temple is worth it to admire this architectural achievement.
