Tips for Travellers
Walk - the best way to see Kolkata, especially the older parts of the city, is to walk. Walk around the Maidan area - the lungs of the city - and New Market/Park Street/Chowringhee, and around north Kolkata, the Indian quarter where the rich merchants and landlords built their stately houses.
