Chennai, a Festive South Indian City

Hot, energetic, creative and devout, Chennai is a city for those who like to explore and find new experiences. Discover the museums, temples, beaches, historical landmarks, and experience the friendly community feel with growing sophistication and night life. India's second largest film industry, Kollywood, is a special treat for Tamil film fans.

Chennai's Climate and Festivals Shape Travellers' Memories

Chennai has a tropical climate with temperatures up to 40°C in late May and June, dropping to 25°C in January when the three-day Pongal harvest festival takes place. From the middle of October to mid December is monsoon season, also the time of the Karthikai Deepam, a full moon festival in November and December, which is celebrated with firecrackers and festive lights. The community honours Ganesh in September for the ten day Vinayak Chaturthi, finishing with a procession. The Chennai Music and Dance Festival spans mid-December to mid-January, and features south Indian classical music. Chennai experiences cyclones at times, so be aware and plan accordingly.

Preparing to Visit South India

The Indian High Commission website has information on required visas. Make sure passports have two blank pages and at least 180 days from entry date before they expire.

Malaria is a minimal risk, but routine vaccinations should be up to date before setting off. Consider Hepatitis B, rabies, and Japanese encephalitis immunisation. Drinking bottled water and peeling or cooking fruit and vegetables is important to avoid stomach upsets.

Cheap meals cost only around Rs. 20; overall, day to day prices are low. English is widely spoken, but Tamil is the official language.

Local Tips and Chennai's Transport Options

Once in the city, metered auto rickshaws can be hailed costing around Rs. 25 for 1.8 km, but these often try to overcharge. Heavy traffic means slow going.
