Spotting At Chennai

Wed Dec 21, 2011 5:35 am

Hi all,

I am traveling to Chennai soon and I was wondering if there are any good spotting areas. I read the 2002 forum thread about the same topic and I was wondering if anything has changed as far as restrictions, etc. I read about St. Thomas Mount in that thread. What is that, a park? I looked it up on Google Maps and it shows a drug store for that location. Next to it is a park.

Also, my grandparent's house is in Pallavaram, and they say they get great views from their terrace. Is this too far away from Runway 25/7 (I have a 300mm lens), or should I get closer?
Now more than ever, moving forward with the new American.
