About Travel to Chennai
Chennai is a large coastal city with over 7 million permanent residents. Chennai is important the major economic and cultural centre of South East India with plenty of interest to visitors, of which the city typically attracts around 4 million each year. The area around Chennai has attracted settlers for thousands of year. Mahabalipuram, located 55 km to the south of Chennai, was once a major metropolis with documented trading links with Europe now largely consumed by rising sea levels but with a series of impressive 7th and 8th Century temples still visible near the coastline. Chennai’s emergence as a important population centre came later with the arrival first of the Portuguese in the early 16th Century and then the arrival of British colonialists in the 17th Century, who established Chennai as the administrative centre of British controlled Southern India.
In Chennai British Empire era architecture exists along side Southern Indian style buildings, architecture influence by Muslim culture, all alongside modern, and sometimes not so modern, Western style buildings. Chennai is a culturally diverse city. It also has other attractions, most notably its beaches and its distinctive cuisine. The city’s three main beaches ( (Marina Beach, Edward Elliot’s Beach and Breezy Beach) are not really used for swimming or sunbathing, but rather as places to walk, play games and sit down whilst consuming food from a very large number of food stalls along the edge of most beaches. Travel around Chennai to visit the major attractions is very straightforward as the city has a modern and efficient Metro system saving visitors long hot journeys by road and the constant annoyance of having to negotiate with taxi drivers keen on overcharging visitors to the city who are unfamiliar with the local pricing structure.
