Tourist Places and Things to do in Kolkata

Kolkata has always been a travellers’ favourite for its rich life, culture and history. From the majestic Victoria Memorial to the modest Mother Teresa’s House, India’s largest science museum to biggest park, the crowded Dakshineshwar Kali Temple to the peaceful and calm Belur Math – the places to visit in Kolkata are truly diverse. The city also allows visitors to meet the mighty Royal Bengal Tiger at Sundarbans, watch a cricket match at the iconic Eden Gardens and travel old-style in trams.

Shopping in Kolkata also makes for quite an experience with its contrasting colonial-era markets like Burrabazar and New Market and upscale malls such as South City. Among other popular things to do in Kolkata, binging on street food items such as puchkas, jhalmuri, ghugni chaat, and kathi rolls tops the favourites list. The taste of rasgullas truly defines bliss for foodies in the City of Joy. You can find many hi-end restaurants too and some great places to make the most of Kolkata’s nightlife.

During the festival of Durga Pujo, it is mandatory to spend some time in Kumortuli, Kolkata’s biggest cultural precincts. And if you wish to get away from the city crowd, hill stations near Kolkata such as Siliguri and Darjeeling and other tourist places like Digha make for a perfect weekend getaway.
