    Chennai Central is one of the biggest conglomeration of mankind. Lot of chaos at times but the police are doing an incredible job in letting sanity prevail. Don't forget to try out the Saravana Bhavan

    Dont have to worry about food if u left home/office in a hurry. You have a wide variety to choose from for food. Saravana Bhavan, french loaf, thalapakatti Biriyani, madras cafe etc... just be on time

    Skip the pre paid taxis and autos. Take the taxis which are dropping people off in front of the station. 50% cheaper.

    The dormitories are a steal at 265 rupees for 12 hours! Spotless bathrooms. You need to show your train ticket at check-in.
