Kolkata (Calcutta) Travel Guide: 697 reviews and 2,335 photos

Kolkata - A city of great contrasts...

We stayed in a hotel in Sudder street, a strange backpacker-old-dark-colonial-style street, with curd stall, chai stalls and street food.

We enjoyed the visits to the Botanical Garden and Victoria Memorial.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Nice sights, markets and Botanical Garden
  • Cons:Dirty, Polution, Poverty...
  • In a nutshell:A city with much traffic and poverty, and it seems like it's on the edge to something, I dont't know what...
