About Travel to Chennai


Chennai, known by its colonial era name of Madras until 1996, is a massive city with over 7 million permanent with a logistically fortuitous location on the coast of the Bay of Bengal making the city an easy entry point for shipping items to and from the eastern part of the South of India. The economic importance of the city has grown and diversified from being a trading centre in the early days of British colonial to a centre for manufacturing and other industries. More than a third of India’s automotive industry output, for example, comes from Chennai. Chennai also has a thriving tourist industry with the city having received over 4 million foreign visitors a year over the latter part of the last decade. The city has good transport links, particularly its very busy international airport, and plenty of good quality hotels in which to accommodate all these tourists and large shopping centres. Getting around the city is also relatively straightforward and fast if you make use of the Chennai Metro.
