It is no surprise to get used to the things and that too in
the heart of the city like Chennai. No doubt there are so many
places to see around but the desire to leave the techno center and
seek refuge in some quite and primordial environs is in evitable.
But in Chennai there is nothing to be scared of. The regions around
the city limits provide some nice getaways. The getaways for Chennai
are ideal picnic spots packed with a host of amusements and
Chennai has an extensive network of roads that provides easy
accessibility in and around the regions. The getaways for Chennai
like Mammalapuram, Pulicat, Dakshin Chitra, Vedanthangal Bird
Sanctuary can be easily reached by bus. These places feature a
number of attractions and are ideal choices to spend a quite nice
holiday or a week end. Pulicat and Vedanthangal Bird Sanctuary are
places that does not conform to the hackneyed tourist destinations
with, more or less, the same kind of stuff. Dakshin Chitra likewise
is a step into the past and Mammalapuram the spiritual abode.
