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.
Shop till you drop at Park Street and Biswa Bangla Krirangan. Step out of the city life by going to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Chintamoni Kar Bird Sanctuary. Take a break from Kolkata (Calcutta) with a short trip to Uttarayan Complex in Siuri, about 1h 35 min away. And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Victoria Memorial Hall, stroll the grounds of South Park Street Cemetery, pause for some serene contemplation at St Thomas Evangelical Church of India, and hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour.

To see photos, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Kolkata (Calcutta) journey builder site .

Expect a daytime high around 39°C in September, and nighttime lows around 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
