Chennai has found itself ninth on the list of world cities to visit in 2015 by travel guide Lonely Planet. Washington tops the list, while Chennai has been ranked ahead of Toronto, Canada.
However, the ranking is subject to completion of metro rail work in the city by 2015. Metro rail work is being carried out for completion of the first phase – Koyambedu-Alandur line that is scheduled for December 2014.The Lonely Planet website said, “Chennai has long been seen as a stepping stone to other parts of India.
But with the commissioning of the Chennai metro rail, the capital of India’s south plans to raise its profile. If nothing else, fast and frequent air-conditioned trains will transform the experience of exploring this humid metropolis.”
