Cheat Sheet to picking your getaway from Chennai 

Feel the need to get away from the bustling city life of Chennai? Well, you're in the right place. Chennai is a gateway to explore South India's numerous attractions. Whether you're looking for a beach resort, a pilgrimage site, or a hill station, we can help you discover your perfect getaway!  

Places you can drive to from Chennai: 

  • Mahabalipuram-Less than two hours away from Chennai, this historical town with its beautiful beaches is picking up as a popular getaway among history-lovers, backpackers, surfers and other tourists alike. If you're not in the mood to drive too much, there are a bunch of resorts on the scenic ECR (East Coast Road) as well, for you to unwind. 
  • Pondicherry-One of the most sought after holiday destinations in India, Pondicherry offers tourists a perfect blend of the French colonial vibe, chic boutiques and pristine beaches, all just a short drive away from Chennai! 
  • Yercaud & Yelagiri-Escape for a lazy or adventurous weekend to any of these scenic hill stations, all within driving distance from Chennai. 
  • Tanjore & Kumbakonam-Marvel at the temples and splendid architecture at these two places if you're a lover of history and culture. 
  • Wildlife Corridor of South India-For wildlife lovers, the South has got an amazing collection of areas rich in flora and fauna including Mudumalai, Bandipur, BR Hills, Nagarhole and Kabini. These areas are a treat to anyone looking to get in touch with nature and witness different species of wildlife. 
  • Bangalore & Mysore- For the city slickers out there, Bangalore is just about 350 km away and has a lot to do. Be sure to never get bored while you're in this happening city. If you're looking for something quieter, the historical Mysore is just a short drive away from Bangalore.  
  • Madurai-This popular pilgrimage site is frequented by several tourists throughout the year and is drivable from Chennai.
  • Kodaikanal, Ooty, Coonoor-Escape the Chennai heat and head over to any of these popular hill stations to enjoy the climate and the stunning views! 
  • Coorg & Chikmagalur-Enjoy the climate and the hospitality of the people at these brilliant destinations which are known for their coffee plantations, delicious food, and innumerable homestays amidst the wilderness.  
  • Sakleshpur, Belur & Halebidu- Enjoy the hill station vibe at Sakleshpur or marvel at the architecture and temples at Belur and Halebidu, all in the Hassan district, which is less than a 10 hour drive from Chennai. 
  • Pollachi-With its nearby wildlife sanctuaries, dams, temples, and rivers, Pollachi has it all to make your holiday a perfect one! 
  • Kerala-Experience the best of Kerala at Wayanad, Munnar, Thekkady and other places God's Own Country has to offer. Though slightly longer drives, one should be able to reach within 12 hours or less. 

Chennai's convenient location and amazing connectivity ensures easily available and affordable flights to places in and out of India, thereby making it less time-consuming to travel to more far off places. 

Places you can take a flight to (within India):

  • Goa-One of India's most popular beach and party destinations, Goa is just a short flight away from Chennai! 
  • Andaman-The ultimate secluded beach and diving destination, a trip to Andaman will leave you wanting more! Moreover, direct and affordable flights are available from Chennai to this fantastic destination!  
  • Rajasthan-Deserts, sand dunes, forts, palaces, history, wildlife-if any of these sound appealing to you, Rajasthan is the place to be! 
  • Hampi-This popular tourist destination could just as well be called the land of history with its ruins and ancient temples. Those looking for a more relaxed stay can explore the other side of Hampi as well. 

Fly out of India: 

  • Sri Lanka-Given Chennai's location on the Coromandel Coast, flights to Sri Lanka are short and affordable. In less than an hour and a half you can find yourself in the land of ruins, beaches and culture. What's best is that you don't need to worry about your visa as you'll get it on arrival if you're from India. 
  • Southeast Asia-Direct flights from Chennai are available to some of the Southeast Asian countries, including Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia, where you'll have tons to do!
