Beach Holidays at Tranquebar - The Danish Village

This itinerary is a great mix of the East Coast in Tamilnadu with the colonial stories. Chennai has a great history for the British Colonialisation and Tranquebar tells about the Danish connection. To add a bit of local life and culture, we have beautifully handcrafted some nice story telling tours through Mahabalipuram, Pondicherry and Kumbakonam etc. Tranquebar is still known for its great Danish style and influence which are incorporated with the local life. The fishermen community in Tranquebar is an interesting case study for philanthropists.
