Remembered as the Communist hub of India, this exquisite city will charm you with its Old World culture and heritage. Dubbed as the 'City of Joy', the celebratory air in Kolkata (Calcutta) never diminishes with its excitingly colourful festivals, particuarly Durga Puja .
Dotted with bright yellow cabs, Kolkata (Calcutta), the bustling capital city of West Bengal, is the hub of Bengali culture in India. The city boasts of a rich cultural heritage, evident in its distinct cuisine, clothing, lifestyle, its literature and even architecture. The cradle to Communist parties in India, the city is an embodiment of its ideologies, which grant it its uniqueness in terms of the pace of life. You must visit the famous Howrah bridge, especially at night to see its twinkling city lights, reflected in the gently lapping Hooghly river. Visitors shoud also try traveling by the unique tramway, for a complete 'Calcutta' experience. Come during the grand Durga Puja ceremony and lose yourself in the fervent, pious and celebratory air of the city.

"Lovely Kolkata"
reviewed on Jul 03 2014
Kolkata is a true Metropolitan City.Although the City is busy but the transportation system is great. It has numerous city buses,local trains,taxis and above all rather below us the amazing metro. It also has many beautiful places like the beautiful Victoria Memorial,the shore of Hoogly (Ganga) river and the Howrah Bridge. Indian meusium was incredible and the artificial coal mine in it is amazing. Nicco Park and Aquatica has some great rides and magic of science can be seen in Science City. The tour to Kolkata was extraordinary and the experience gathered is amazing.
