List of Things to Try in Chennai – A Dose of All Things Wonderful About Chennai

Chennai is a colourful city that offers the best of the old and the new. It exhibits authentic India in many ways and the culture and atmosphere experienced here will forever remain in your memories.


Explore the famous Koyambedu Market

Chennai is immensely popular amongst shoppers and a walk through this city will show you exactly why. Chennai city is a busy place and it has shops galore everywhere you go! When it comes to the busy buzz, Koyambedu probably tops the list. This wholesale market bustles with life from the wee hours of dawn and is probably one of the best places to witness the produce shopping scene of Chennai. Fruits and vegetables are the biggest highlights here and if you want to eat heaps of fruits at rock bottom prices, there really is no better place in all of Chennai.


Shop at the Usman Road and the Ranganathan Street

It is not enough to just try the Koyambedu Market to experience shopping in this city for there is so much more that this place has in store. Take Usman Road and the Ranganathan Street for instance. From a distance above the ground, the crowds resemble the dot pixels of TV noise; and this is no exaggeration! A part of T Nagar which is known among Indian shoppers from all over the globe, the streets are a textile lover's paradise. With famous names like Pothy's and Jayachandran's looming on the streets, these places constantly draw massive crowds.


Watch a Famous Movie on Opening Night

With Bollywood, Kollywood, Tollywood and so many other "woods", it's no surprise that Indians love their cinema. In Chennai, Kollywood it is and the locals here literally go nuts over their movie premiers. They are only shy of worshipping them and some probably do even that! Now to experience all that passion, love and obsession in the air you need to watch a famous Tamil movie with the locals. Even if you don't understand anything, the atmosphere alone will speak volumes about the movie. In the end, it boils down to how you feel during the movie and believe me you will feel good!


Sample South Indian Cuisine

Being ardent vegetarians, Chennai has its own line of cuisine that is in tune with their religious beliefs. If you are the kind of person who cannot have a meal without meat you would be surprised at the wonders created by vegetables in Chennai. If you are lost for choice, try the Idli and Thosais - both of which are staples for breakfast here. For those interested in sampling the vegetarian dishes any local joint would do but if you are looking for a stylish version of South Indian food dining venues such as those found in the Chennai property of Turyaa Hotels & Resorts are a good choice. Such options at Chennai airport hotels are also preferred among those staying for a short time in the city.
