Distance from Chennai to Kottayam is about 620 Kms. Total bus time will be about 17 hours. (dep. 3 pm; arr. 8.30 am). Fare would be roughly Rs. 300/-

It is impossible to drive by bus between cities in India and not have it be fast and scary.

Marina Beach

by Rodan44

Along Chennai's coast with the Bay of Bengal is Marina Beach, the second longest beach in the world. 13 kilometers of golden sand opposite of which are found all the most important government buildings. Portions of the beach appear very idillic, while others are downright filthy. Either way, it is worth a visit just to witness the daily activity on the beach. Here you will see old wooden fishing boats, peasants camping on the beach, shanty towns, open air fish markets, and kids playing or flying kites. Probably not the place you want to plan a romantic beach getaway, but a colorful slice of local life nonetheless.

Touch & Go - Chennai

"Very Short Trip"

I had a very short business trip to Chennai. Did not have much time to really see the place. I was at one of the plants and my client took me to Pondicherry for a short holiday. Nevertheless, this was my first visit to India and I get a feel of how India looks like in real life!
