Why is Tamil Nadu the most visited state in India? Well, the union between tradition and transformation makes Tamil Nadu tourism unique. Tamil Nadu is a place where not just deities but “screen gods” are worshipped too, where locals dolled up in lungis speak fluent English or even French. Grab a map of Tamil Nadu and the latest copy of local Tamil guide and start your journey to this state in South India with unrivalled cultural heritage.
Occupying the bottom stretch of the Coromandel Coast, Tamil Nadu is India's southernmost state. Ancient Dravidian temples, colonial coffee plantations, tranquil fishing villages, beautiful beaches, and palatable Tamil cuisine drive tourism in Tamil Nadu. The Capital of Tamil Nadu and its largest city, Chennai is a city that holds its history and culture dear to heart. This teeming metropolis is a mix of Raj-era monuments, Hindu temples, modern buildings, and massive billboards. Marina Beach, Kapaleeshwar Temple, San Thome Church, and Arignar Anna Zoological Park are some of the top tourist places in Chennai.
Tiger Cave and Mahabalipuram Shore Temple are worth making a day trip from Chennai. Tamil Nadu tourism stands out in its fervent ethnicity like no other state in India. Outside of cities in Tamil Nadu such as Chennai, and the coastal stretch of Pondicherry, travellers can see that beautiful villages in Tamil Nadu remain virtually the same for decades. Madurai, Coimbatore, Kodaikanal, Ooty, Coonoor, and Yercaud are other popular tourist destinations in Tamil Nadu to explore on a holiday. Honeymooners prefer the Nilgiri Hills in Tamil Nadu, along with border with Kerala, for their romantic getaway.
Make sure to uncover the rich Dravidian history by visiting temples in Tamil Nadu like Ranganathaswamy Temple, Brihadeeswarar Temple, Rameswaram Temple, and Airavateshwar Temple. Tamil Nadu has two UNESCO world heritage sites: Great Living Chola Temples and Group of Monuments at Mahabalipuram.

I got in touch with traveltriangle and gosthala when I was planning a 7 day trip of Tamil Nadu starting from Mahabalipuram to Madurai covering 4 coastal cities. When I started having detail discussion with them they made me realize that how far the distances would be and how we can break the journey and cover more cities. They comfortably planned the itenary and setup a 7 city tour in 8 days which was remarkable. The driver who was allocated to us was good, but I wish that he could speak either Hindi or English fluently as it became difficult for us t...

Our trip to Tamilnadu through Gosthala went very well. It was all well planned and smooth. Thanks to Harini who has been coordinating the trip and was reachable all along the trip. Driver Sankar was very helpful and he kept the vehicle clean. We had a peaceful darshan and sight seeing. Accommodation was all good except Gopi Nivas Grand hotel in KanyaKumari. It was stinking with cigarette smell and bath rooms were not clean. Apart from this hotel all other hotels were good. We didn't expect Gopi Nivas Grand to be so bad.

We have great experience with Gosthala's service. It was very good time and we enjoyed a lot. At Kovalam, hotel stay with complimentary breakfast service, restaurant staff should be cooperative and provide proper service. Kovalam hotel location is very good but still hotel management needs more attention for hospitality and service. So travellers can refer more people to stay.

Taking toy train rides in Ooty, evening stroll at Marina Beach, wildlife safaris in Mudumalai National Park, and bowing before deities covered with vermilion paste is the highlight of tourism in Tamil Nadu. One can plan their travel with Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation (TTDC) to avoid any hassle.
On a Tamil Nadu trip, travellers can experience an enticing charm of historical splendour, colourful celebrations, and natural wealth of Nilgiri Hills. After heavy summer downpours, hill stations in Tamil Nadu become green and lush, whereas, in the Cauvery River Delta, the wildlife of Tamil Nadu is always on the prowl. Taking a road trip to Tamil Nadu through ancient coastal towns, scenic hill stations, and vast urban sprawls is a quintessential South Indian experience worth enjoying.
