Things to Do in Chennai

  • Broken Bridge

    As the name suggests, Broken Bridge collapsed in 1977 due to strong river currents and since then has never been reconstructed. What was initially developed to assist fishermen to cross their path from Santhome Beach to Elliot's Beach via tricycles and rickshaws has now become one of the popular tourist attractions in Chennai.

    It is not just youngsters you would often spot here but it is also a favourite shooting location with many Tamil film directors. Overlooking the Adyar estuary, the bridge offers picturesque views, especially that of sunrise. Many people visit this place in the morning to view a clear sunrise.

  • The B Bar

    Boasting of special nights like the Ladies night every Thursday, Funky Friday’s and House night on Saturday; this club offers a good nightlife option in Chennai. Sports lovers can have their share of fun too as large LCDs screen current and popular sport events. Backed by sophisticated interiors and a plush seating area, this party place promises a great ambience for an evening out with near and dear ones. Do check with the club authorities for the special night menu as there's something different planned for each day.
