Late Night Turtle Walks

Chennai attracts the famous Olive Ridley turtles between January and April every year and has an active network working towards conserving these beautiful species. By participating in turtle walks, you not only get to connect with nature but can also get a chance to contribute towards protecting these creatures. The process involves collecting turtle eggs, relocating them to a safe place and also watching as the baby turtles are set free into the ocean, all for no money whatsoever. Pretty cool, right? 

Driving Along The Bay Of Bengal

Chennai so proudly boasts of having the largest beach in the country, the Marina Beach, along with a slew of private beaches along the OMR and ECR stretch, all painting beautiful pictures of the Bay Of Bengal. A drive down these roads not only is super scenic but also unique in the sense that you get to witness the water from different perspectives? Isn't that amazing? 

Reading At Anna Centenary Library

Love books? Chennai lets you declare that love through its iconic Anna Centenary Library that is the largest library in Asia. Spread across a sprawling 3.75 lakh square feet of land, housing eight floors of books, this place is simply amazing. You can also work here, read your own books or skim through the bombastic collection of books this place already offers. Calm, serene and truly conducive, reading or working here is truly blissful.

Hanging Out At De Monte Colony

Chennai has quite a few spooky spots but De Monte Colony in Alwarpet truly stands out. The spooky buildings and tales of horror this place comes with can set anyone's heart racing. Definitely not for the faint-hearted, even passing by this lane can incite fear and excitement for some. 

Going For A Rajni Movie

Superstar of the millennia, going for a Rajni movie in Chennai is a massively cool experience in itself. Something, not just every Chennaite but Indian knows. From abhishekams to bursting crackers, a Rajni release is no less than a carnival and a mighty grand one at that. And if you love pomp and show, this one is something you must experience first hand and get a taste of hardcore fandom.
