Avoid the hassle of airports and take the road instead. Bangalore to Chennai is a journey of about 350 km with beautiful landscapes and a great way for culture immersion. Here is the route you should take to reach Chennai after starting your car in Bengaluru. 

Bangalore City to Chennai via Vellore Route

The fastest way to Chennai from Bangalore by road is via NH 4, NH 44 and NH 48. The roads are good and the journey takes about 7 to 8 hours as it has comparatively less traffic. On this route you will cross Vellore, to ensure that the road trip does not seem like a blur check out the Vellore Fort and Jain Temple. After you have checked out the spots indulge in some Chettinad cuisine here to awaken your tastebuds.

Bangalore to Chennai via NH 75 

This route is the more scenic choice of the two. The highway is well maintained offering a smooth road trip experience. While the focus is on reaching Chennai from Bangalore this route crosses through Chittoor. Here you can get off the highway and enter this city in Andhra Pradesh to visit the famous Kanipakkam Vinakaya Temple built in the 11th century under the reign of the Chola Empire.

Additionally, you can also make a stop at Chembarambakkam Lake in Chennai if you are interested in checking out one of Chennai's rain-fed reservoirs. Keep in mind that this is also a short detour and might add on to your journey time. 

A road trip from Bangalore to Chennai is not just travelling from one point to another, it is best experienced when one takes a detour. Check out ancient temples and grab a bite or two of the local dishes before you reach Chennai. Once you are in the city rest for the day at Hablis Hotel Chennai. The hotel is located close to the airport and is easily accessible by both private and public transportation. The location of the hotel will ensure that you avoid the traffic of the city after having driven for long hours to reach Chennai.
