      Is it easy to flag and board a taxi in Eillots's Beach?

      by Chyan Online Now Mar 28, 2015 at 9:55 PM

      Hi, Chennai VT,

      Is it easy to flag and board an ordinary taxi in Eillot's Beach and anywhere else in India without calling a taxi in advance? Will taxi drivers without passengers stop to allow passengers to board if passengers flag?

      I just want to avoid the autos.

      Is it easy to flag and board a call-taxi in Chennai without advance booking?

      by Chyan Online Now Mar 22, 2015 at 7:47 AM

      Is it easy to flag and board a call-taxi in Chennai without booking in advance? Can a Chennai hotel help a tourist flag a taxi for fast travel to Chennai city centre from Pallavaram?

      Which is advisable for travel in Chennai from Pallavaram, share auto or call-taxi / taxi?

      Is it safe to bring camera (kept in shoulder bag) while touring in Chennai? Chennai appears to be very high in crime rates.

      Which noteworthy destinations in Chennai to visit?

      by Chyan Online Now Mar 18, 2015 at 3:57 PM

      Is Eillot's Beach easier and safer to explore than Marina Beach? I hear many drownings in Marina Beach area even close to Triumph of Labour Statue.

      Other than Saint Thomas Mount and the faraway Fort St George, is there a famous Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Chennai? I am looking for the Seventh-Day Adventist Church closer to the airport or closer to Thousand Lights.

      Why does Chennai have no city tourist map?

      by Chyan Online Now Mar 8, 2015 at 4:04 AM

      Does anyone know why Chennai has no airport-to-city tourist map? Whenever India Tourism appears in any mega travel fair, its brochures are on provinces of India and wordy writes-up on selected towns and cities. It makes FIT travel planning difficult.

      Weekend in Chennai

      by nattybabe Online Now Dec 3, 2014 at 2:04 AM

      Hi all,

      I'm thinking about taking advantage of the new visa rules for India and heading to Chennai for a weekend next month.

      Please can you let me know which area should I be looking at staying in? Having looked at accommodation it seems to be very wide spread.

      Also, is it best to use cabs, drivers etc or is it easy enough to use public transport to get around.

      Many thanks, Nat
