Recently I travelled to the modern city of Chennai which is also the capital city of the state of Tamil Nadu for a business meeting. I really enjoyed my stay here and hence I would like to share the experiences of my trip to Chennai with you guys via this post. So stay tuned for all the insights regarding this sprawling metropolis.
I always plan my travel as well as accommodation beforehand so as to avoid any last minute hassles. Hence I booked my flight tickets as well as hotel in Chennai around a month in advance online via one of the popular travel websites. Thanks to the modern day travel websites I was able to plan my entire trip from the comfort of my office.

Jet Airways Mumbai to Chennai flights
I searched for all the leading airlines that offer flights from Mumbai to Chennai online and booked the Jet Airways flight number 487 for my travel. I had already travelled a couple of times with this leading budget air carrier and have never been let down by it’s in – flight services that too at reasonable prices.
My flight departed from the Terminal 2 of the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, Mumbai at 10.50 pm and landed at the Terminal 1 of the Chennai Airport at 12.34 am. Thanks to the spacious recliner seats with ample leg room even in the economy class cabins I found the journey quite comfortable.
The state of the art in – flight entertainment system offered by this airline offers a host of music channels, movies and television shows to choose from hence keeping the passengers engrossed all through the travel duration. I reached the Chennai Airport afresh from where I boarded the airport shuttle offered by my hotel that I had pre – booked for my stay in the city.

I prefer a homely space and my personal space as I travel to any place. Hence I booked the Nortels Service Apartments in the Kandanchavadiarea of Chennai.
