Chennai is an industrial city with a large portion of India’s cars being manufactured there; other industries include computer technology, including the manufacture of hardware and healthcare products. The city has a major port on the south–eastern coast of India which has played an important part in the development of the area and is considered the gateway to South India.
In more recent years, Chennai has turned into the Indian equivalent of Silicon Valley; as well as the Tamil movie studios; it is also home to film-making and editing schools that draw hopeful’s candidates from all over India as well some of the best luxury boutique and design hotels & restaurants.
However, despite being a largely industrial city, Chennai also has a vibrant music scene that includes the traditional music of the area and a huge festival which features concerts by thousands of singers and musicians. It is largely because of this festival that Chennai has restaurants, hotels and golf courses as it hasn’t always been a tourist destination.
Chennai used to be called Madras and the local language is a Tamil variation known as Madras Tamil. It is almost always hot in Chennai; they also have a monsoon season which makes the best time to travel between October and March.
