Chennai (Madras), India
Chennai, formerly known as Madras, is home to the second biggest beach in the world, the Marina Beach. Be careful where you swim though -- there is quite a large population of sharks in the area! Visit the Fort Museum, which has a remarkable collection of memorabilia dating back to the days of the Raj. Or visit famous Kapaleeswarar Temple and nearby San Thome Cathedral, said to contain the remains of St. Thomas the Apostle. The Deer Park and the Madras Snake Park are sure to amuse the whole family.
