When to visit

The best time for families to visit Chennai is from October to February when the temperatures are cooler and pleasant for sightseeing. Chennai's summers are scorching and are best avoided, while the monsoon season often brings heavy downpours, floods, and unpredictable weather conditions. By visiting during these moderate months, the whole family can enjoy all that Chennai has to offer without any heat or weather-related discomforts.

It is worth noting that school holidays should align with the timings of your trip. If you plan on visiting during peak family holiday periods such as Christmas and New Year, it would be wise to book your accommodations and attractions well in advance to guarantee your family the best possible experience.
