This is very nice topic to discuss. Anybody from other towns willing to shift to chennai means, they may don't know about chennai places and residential areas. This thread will help them to find suitable place to them according to their wish. My vote goes to Kodampakkam and Nungampakkam. because in these area house rent, water facility and train facility, Bus facility and all are good. Shopping and all are very easy. If you want to go for shopping, no need to go anywhere there are plenty of shops available at kodampakkam high road, T.Nagar also very nearer to these place.
People from other towns, who had shifted due to work can be settle here, because if they want to go to their native, Engmore and central station is very near to these place. Rent also very reasonable. According to me Electric Train facility is the most important need in chennai, going by bus in chennai is very horrible. So unmarried working girls and people who don't have two wheeler can choose this place.
Similarly Velachery TNHB colony and Annanagar also best and decent living place.
