Kolkata (Calcutta)

Nestled on the banks of the Hooghly River, Kolkata is a booming metropolis, India's second largest city, and the country's cultural hub, known for being the birthplace of major artistic and literary movements.
Change things up with a short trip to The Strand in Chandannagar (about 1h 45 min away). There's still lots to do: take in the local highlights with Walking tours, don't miss a visit to College Street (Boi Para), see the interesting displays at Victoria Memorial Hall, and get a new perspective on nature at Indian Museum (Jadu Ghar).

Expect a daytime high around 30°C in December, and nighttime lows around 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
