How many more times are we going to stop with just planning all this? It is time to quit planning and do it at least now! Or else the spirit of Chennai will not forgive you, for Bodyguard Munishwarar’s sake!
Let us look into some simple things many of us miss out on even after being in Chennai for ages. If you have already completed the list, you are one among some of the very few Chennaites! Yeah, we talked to a lot of people before putting up this list.
1. Light House Musings
A view of namma Chennai’s cityscape from a height of 46 meters. Let the beach winds do the talking and if you have the superpowers, talk back my son!!
2. Surf it up at Covelong!
When your friend always talks about ‘What happens in Hawaii?, the surf life, bongo beats & coconut dances, pull him down to Covelong and get him on a surfboard daww!
3. Insomniacs have a lot to do!
Nightlife bruh! Party bruh! People can also try to live a life outside pubs during the nights. It would indeed be so cool to enjoy the Kulfi at Marina, buttermilk or tea from a random street stall.
4. More and more mountains!
This is the best place to listen to “Castle on the Hill” by Ed Sheeran. Technically, it is one of the largest hills inside city premises, that’s why. People who say, “I can’t come bro. I don’t have hiking boots.” will get Petrificus Totalus-d at the Gemini signal.
5. Walk by the waters
“Let us go to the beach” doesn’t necessarily mean just Marina. There are some other quaint and beautiful beaches. Let us go there #Headsets #RajaSir #ChennaiLove everyone.
6. Hunt down the best street-food spots
Remember that old adage, “Cupcakes do not taste the same everywhere”? The same applies to Idiyaapam and Mutton Payas! Enjoy the street food waiting for ya at these kutty idli kadais and Kai’endhi Bhavans!
7. A class-apart journey in the Metro
Flight fares are anyway too much. For something that costs little less, you can have the experience of Singapore or France in Singara Chennai (Yes, you heard it right!)
8. Shop or walk by the crowds of T-Nagar
‘Sweat it out! Lose some calories! Feel the Heat!’ aren’t just gym quotes anymore. They belong to these bustling streets of T-Nagar, where fashion is redefined (Yes! Puma is Poma, Adidas becomes Adibas)
9. But, first Coffee!
Whether you are a caffeine addict or not, you still have to taste the filter kaapi! Just because… even I don’t know why! Some Chennaivaasi told me.
