Before visiting this beautiful destination in South India, it’s helpful to learn a few details about Tamil Nadu. Carry a map of tourist places in Tamil Nadu for a hassle-free trip. Here is some more useful information about Tamil Nadu:

Food

South India, especially Tamil Nadu, has a wide range of delicious food for vegetarians as well as non-vegetarians. Most popular food items in Tamil Nadu are made from grains, lentils, rice, and fresh vegetables. However, spices are added to give a dish its distinctive taste. Spices are the main ingredient of Tamil Nadu food. The main food of Tamil Nadu varies from coastal areas to inland interior regions. While seafood is common in Chennai and Pondicherry, Tamil Nadu cuisine has different dishes to offer in hill regions.

Salem is renowned for its mangoes, Madurai is popular for milk dessert Jigarthanda, while Palani is known for Panchamirtham. The traditional food of Tamil Nadu is usually served on a banana leaf and is eaten with hand. Idli or dosa accompanied by sambhar or rasam are the highlights of Tamil cuisine.

      Chothys Park hotel is far away from city, room service is not so convenient. Food is given to us cold. We are satisfied with the other hotel excluding some minor things. Lee Vacation Travel Triangle services are very prompt. Seema Madam gives us respond very attentively. Driver Rajesh is very particular about time. Except Hindi language

      Pavani sreshta apartment, 7 days ago

    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      Rooms were not clean. Coorg hotel was no where near the market. Cockroaches in the room. We have to wait for more than 3 hours to check in Mysore hotel. Mysore hotel's manager was too arrogant. Service was very slow. We have been told there will no Oyo rooms from the package. But have got Oyo rooms in coorg and mysore. Need to travel for more 4-5 kms to reach to coorg hotel's breakfast restaurant. There was only 1 option given for breakfast in Coorg. I have been told I will get so many options in the breakfast. Nothing I got. Mysore hotel didn't give us breakfast. I ate it outside and Lee vacations paid me for that. Ooty hotel was good but the service was damn slow. We literally have to wait for half an hour to get water bottle. Breakfast was very limited. Only idli and bread. Cab driver was good. He knows each and every thing about the place.

      Travel Agent just looked at the budget i have provided, but he didn't cared whether the basic amenities are available or not at the hotels provided. When enquired the same with them, then the response really surprised me. He was stating how can I expect the basic amenities when my budget is just 30K for 4 days :( and intern told me that it was very challenging for him to accomodate. Overall trip went fine, but we faced issues at the hotel at Ooty.

    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      Overall stay was great. Enjoyed a lot. All three hotels were good. I would like to suggest one thing, as tourist doesn't know much about the place , you should guide then accordingly. As which places to visit, how many days required per city. Because there were so much travelling that almost one whole day of my respective city tour went in travelling. So tourist can cover less but atleast can enjoy current place. Else it was a memorable trip. Thank you. Journey was beautiful than the destination. I really enjoyed bful road trip to Ooty .

      The overall arrangement by Lee Vacations was exceptional excepting the Hotel at Ooty. Initially Bhagravi effort to convince me to book a trip with Lee was unforgeatable. She left no stone unturned to ensure the booking. Than the driver Jitenderji tried his best to ensure the trip ends smoothly & becomes a memorable one for us. Ramya & Murrugun also tried their best ensure we get the best hospitality as pissible. I thank the whe Lee team for their sincere and honest effort to keep us happy, God bless them. The Rameswaram trip particularly to Dhanuskodi & Kalam Memorial was amazing
