My Vague Plans For Sri Lanka And South India

Jump to last reply

The short:

I am headed to Sri Lanka and South India in September, 2107, and I request your help with flights for the India portion of the trip.

The long:

My annual solo trip for September, 2017 will be two weeks in Sri Lanka, and one week in South India. I just got my outbound business class award seat on Cathay, and I arrive in Colombo on September 1. The return flights are not yet in the system, but I would like to return home from India on September 24.

For right now, I only have a question about the India portion of my trip. I plan on taking Sri Lanka airlines, tentatively from Colombo to Chennai on September 15 or so, and a week later, departing from India on Cathay to LAX via Hong Kong. I am interested in seeing the temples in the Tamil Nadu region. Eyewitness presents a one week itinerary as follows:

Chennai--Kanchipuram-Mamallapuram-North of Mamallapuram-Puducherry

Does an itinerary like that make sense? If so, would I arrive in India in Chennai, and leave from Chennai as well? (Cathay flies to Hong Kong from Mumbai, Kolkotta, Chennia, Delhi, Hyderabad, and Bangalore.) How would I get around--do I need a car and driver the whole time?

Thanks a bunch!

PS - 1: I like culture, history, flora and fauna, but no beaches.

PS -2: I look forward to picking the brains of all the Sri Lanka experts, but not quite yet.
