Find Out More About Life in Chennai

Chennai calls itself a metropolis, and it remains true to this as you delve into its heart. A city on the rise, Chennai is a cultural and economic hub built on the foundations of ancient Indian tradition. A center for the automobile industry, economics, social reform, tourism and culture, Chennai is a world leader, impressing the jaded palettes of longtime expats, and welcoming newer additions warmly. Whatever brings you to the city, you're bound to find plenty to keep you here. It's good to know that you won't go hungry or cold here; temperature averages rarely dip below the mid-20s during the day, and the city has received acclaim in recent years for its much improved dining opportunities.

Connect to Other Expats in Chennai With InterNations!

At InterNations, we care about our users. That's why we're careful when we select members, always being guided by our core principles. Amongst other things, InterNations provides new expats with a friendly face, making values such as trust, reliability and general friendliness entirely non-negotiable. This safe environment allows you to take a little piece of home everywhere with you. It's safe to assume that if you have a burning question to ask, you're not the only one. From pragmatic concerns to tips about where best to eat, posing a question should start you on the road to finding your solution. We also help to link up expats in the real world. In Chennai, we have a Women's group, an Arts and Culture group, and a Coffee Club among others. These groups will help you to form networks wherever you find yourself.
