Those who are fans of road trips know that driving gives you a joy no other type of travel can. It gives you complete control of your time, lets you take a detour and explore a new destination, helps you bond with your travel buddy, and brings out the uninhibited singer in you.
Frequent travellers between Chennai and Bangalore will tell you stories about traffic, toll gates, good highways, and changing landscapes between the two states.
But one of the most important elements that make a road trip enjoyable is the food breaks. Driving from one place to another anywhere in India means that you can stop off and explore lots of authentic local cuisine, which can change with every town you cross!.
Between Chennai and Bangalore, Vellore is a good spot to take a quick break, or even a longer one if you’re in the mood to explore the town.
Apart from its many temples, the Vellore Fort also stands as a fortified example of the region’s rich history. Passed on from kingdom to kingdom and finally to the British, the fort offers a great view into the past. Make sure you visit if you have the time!
