The Kolkata City Experience, Kolkata (Calcutta)
India, West Bengal

Info : The Kolkata City Experience

This morning you will start with a visit to Kolkata's most famous monument, the Victoria Memorial, which is set in beautiful grounds. You'll then take a walking tour of the vibrant and diverse city of Kolkata, starting at BBD Bagh, formerly known as Dalhousie Square. Much of Kolkata's finest colonial architecture is in the BBD Bagh area, which houses the secretariat of the state and is the central business hub of the city.

Then visit the Writer’s Building, the General Post Office, St John’s Church and several other Raj-era buildings. Next, drive north to visit a traditional bazaar in “Black Town”, as well as the potter’s colony of Kumartuli. Lunch will be at a fantastic local restaurant, after which you will take a short journey on the historical tram, which is the oldest operating electric tram in Asia, running since 1902. The carriages are basic and you can stay on for as little or as long as you like.

Kolkata is a town to experience, rather than just tick off the sites.
