The first thing most people realize when they first step foot in Chennai is that the sun really, and we mean really, loves Chennai. In fact, the city is famously quipped to have only three seasons: Hot, hotter, and hottest! So if you’re expecting a sunny beach city along the lines of Goa, you’re bound to get more than what you bargained for. Nonetheless, Chennai also has great beaches, amazing food and a vibrant culture – all of which are best enjoyed after the sun has dived behind the horizon!

While the city has kept pace with development and has made great strides in recent decades, Chennai’s people are still considered to be a little on the conservative side. This can manifest in several ways and even some simple things such as smoking in public, particularly for women, or public displays of affection might attract unwanted attention. While there aren’t any cases where this mindset has led to violence or attacks, the atmosphere can be slightly restrictive if you come from a more liberal place.

Chennai gets hotter even before the official summer starts. The land gets dry due to no or less rainfall. The municipality is good whereas they are also irresponsible. You are responsible for anything that happens to you when you’re out at night without proper intimation sent to the police or the family. Public transport is cheap but, uncomfortable.
