Chennai Travel Guide


About Chennai


Formerly known as Madras, always known as the Gateway to South India and recently popular as the location of the blockbuster Bollywood film, 'Chennai Express', this is the capital city of the state of Tamil Nadu. It is also the fourth largest city in India. Located just off the Bay of Bengal, Chennai is a major economic, educational and cultural hub in South India.

What to See / Do


Enjoy classical Tamil dance in the home of Bharata Natyam, visit Vollywood (the equivalent of Bollywood), stroll through British built architecture in the Pantheon Complex, visit the impressive Kapaleeshwarar Temple, the ancient shrine to Shiva or how about making the trip to the Kalikambal Temple where the powerful Kali resides! For cricket fans, why not visit the hallowed home ground of the Chennai Super Kings? Or how about the world famous Shirdi Sai Bai Temple is also here where thousands of pilgrims queue for hours daily for a few seconds glimpse of the statute of the Saint. Listen to beautiful bhajans (hymns) in the background as you pay your respects to the tomb of St Thomas the Apostle behind the soaring San Thome cathedral or simply kick back and head to the beaches and backwaters visiting lush landscapes. The longest beach in Chennai is Marina Beach and runs for 6km. So whether its culture, beaches or a spiritual journey you're after, visit Chennai...you never know, you may just witness a miracle!

Climate


Chennai enjoys a tropical wet & dry climate all year round. As the city lies on the coast, there's always a bit of a sea breeze coming in to the city but, we must be honest, not a lot! In fact, when travelling around the city in a rickshaw, the wind that hits your face is hot. Not warm and pleasant but actually hot! The most sweltering time of the year is from May to June and the locals aptly call this season 'Agni Nakshatram' (fire star). The monsoon hits the city from October to December, later than most other regions in India and leaves January feeling pretty cool.

Language


Tamil, Madras Bashai, Hindi, English

Where to Stay


Whether you're a backpacker on a budget or a seriously extravagant jet-setter with no budget, Chennai has something for everyone. However, whichever type of accommodation you're looking for, a word to the wise....make sure it has air-conditioning! If you're just looking at stopping in Chennai overnight, staying near the airport in Pallavaramy would be a convenient option. The Radisson Hotel is also very close to the airport. There are plenty of budget accommodations available near Egmore train station and on Triplicane High Road or you could opt for serviced apartments. The top-end hotels such as the Taj, Park Plaza and Sheraton Park Hotel & Towers are generally found in the south.

How to Get Here


In less than 10 hours, you could be in Chennai with direct flights from the UK. British Airways flies non-stop to Chennai around six times a week.

If travelling in from a domestic point, you can bus it to Chennai from almost any point in India. Or you can take actually take the Chennai Express train a la the recent Hindi film which popularized this particular mode of transport!

TicketstoIndia is one of the companies I check when I'm looking to organise my next trip to India. Clearly as I've used them before my previous experience has been ok - all online and impersonal.
This time, however, I feel I didn't get the same level of service. My e-ticket looked dodgy. I didn't get any email notification about online check-in that I normally receive. Very minor things elicited anxiety in the 24-hours prior to departure. Fortunately everything worked out, but still.
Up-shot is - will I reuse TicketstoIndia next time?

A bit slap-dash - as is so much in the world these days. Lack of attention to detail. Lack of understanding about customer's real needs. Sadly, these lacks seem to be endemic nowadays......
I'm going to click on 'Good' below - but really I would prefer a middle option of 'OK' - i.e. not poor but definitely not good, the latter implies better than OK, no?

Many thanks for your detailed and balanced comments and for taking the time to share these with us.

Although it is of course your prerogative as to how you score your own personal booking experience, I have had a look at your booking and can see nothing at all amiss with this. You mention that your e-ticket looked "dodgy" but again I can see no evidence to suggest that it is anything other than the same, standard e-ticket that all of our customers receive.

As far as your comments about being "slap-dash" are concerned, I would certainly welcome your additional input on this. I appreciate that this is a forum for people to air their views but we would at least appreciate the opportunity to respond to and address any issues. As it stands, your comments are quite negative but you have not provided any real justification for this.

I will gladly look into any issues that you may have faced if you can provide me with some further information on this. I would be very grateful if you would consider letting me have some more details by email at nick@ticketstoindia.co.uk

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Nick Clout
Customer Services Manager

Following my initial feedback, a dialogue about my comments flowed between me and Nick at T2I the upshot of which is that they were able to appropriately identify the confusion and both sides have learned from the experience. Ergo - Brilliant Customer Service from Nick Clout. I'll be using Tickets to India for my next trip for sure!

Experience of booking through web site was good and price deal was best. However post booking non-availability of features like extracting the e-ticket or search for booking is minus.
