Updated on: 26 Jun 2016
Peter Van Geit needs no introduction. As the founder of Chennai Trekkers Club, this Belgian has made Chennai his home for about 18 years. Here's what he has to say about namma city...
A place of historical importance in the city and why?
A beautiful location in the city which is close to my heart and carries a lot of natural beauty and history is the Theosophical Society next to where the Adyar River meets the sea. It's a beautiful green jewel in our concrete surroundings where the natural beauty of the original Madras can still be seen. Old heritage buildings are spread across this paradise.
Where would you take someone who is new to the city?
The beaches are among the city's most beautiful natural heritage. You can lie down and listen to the sound of the waves, build sand castles, take a refreshing dip, play volleyball or soccer or just go for a long barefoot walk.
What's the best part of Chennai cuisine that you'd recommend?
