Yeah, as Sid would be saying in the video – “What is Chennai without a coconut?” – and this is one reason why it’s just cool to spend time by the beach, and in tropical places..
And for Chennai which is in fact on the eastern coast of India, the Marina beach is the way to go. Quiet. Uncrowded.
Still, we were actually looking for more than just restaurants and cafes.. And that is ‘street food’. Yes, that’s right. It would have been great if Sid showed us some of Chennai’s street food, right?
Anyway, temples are always a nice place to visit and the Kapaleeswarar Temple looks interesting. So is the 450-year-old dying tree at The Theosophical Society.
Above it all, it would certainly be good to ‘understand’ the place’s culture by checking not just their ‘stage plays’ but their markets or economic activity as well.
