22 Awesome Things to do in Chennai

Chennai, or the lovely Madras celebrates its 375th birthday on August 22, 2014. As a part of the the Madras Day celebration, I decided to make a list of 22 awesome things to do in Chennai. I’d compiled a similar list already – ‘50 Reasons I love Chennai‘. And once again for a place which has a special place in my heart. Here it goes…

1. Spend a breezy evening at Marina Beach with sundal/ice cream/fish fry (I’m vegetarian, but this advice for those who eat non-veg 😉 )

2. Eat Breakfast from any of the many ‘Bhavan’

20. Jog along the Marina Beach Promenade at dawn

21. Get lost and keep searching for your gang while browsing through the shops in Spencer Plaza

The list actually doesn’t stop here. There are infinite great things that are present in Chennai which makes life awesome!

And coming soon..about Bangalore, my hometown 🙂

Cheers

God Bless
