When you land in Chennai, you’ll quickly discover that this coastal city boasts some of the best stretches of sand on India’s east coast. The capital of Tamil Nadu, the country’s southernmost state, is packed with cultural credentials too. Chennai is home to centuries-old buildings, Tamil cinema – known locally as Kollywood – and an annual two-month long music festival that showcases some of India’s best musical talent.

Fly to Chennai with British Airways and you’re on the doorstep of one of world’s longest beach promenades. Marina Beach stretches out for miles, and there's plenty here to keep you busy when you’re not relaxing on the sand. Keep an eye out for statues, street food stalls and activities for children. Away from the shoreline, Chennai has a list of temples worth a visit, including the artistic wonder of Marundheeswara, built in the 11th century, and the Ekambareswarar Temple, located just outside of the city. Cricket is also very popular in Chennai – if you’re a fan, make time to see a match at MA Chidambaram Stadium, the second largest cricket stadium in the country. Book your flight to Chennai today.
