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.
Visiting Nature & Wildlife Tours and Rabindra Sarovar will get you outdoors. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Birla Industrial & Technological Museum and Jorasanko Thakur Bari. Explore Kolkata (Calcutta)'s surroundings by going to Howrah (Second Hooghly Bridge & Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Indian Botanic Garden). There's much more to do: relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, admire the landmark architecture of St. John's Church, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and browse the different shops at Quest Mall.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 39°C, and evening lows to 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
