Kolkata is a city with a lot to offer. But don’t lose heart just because your stay here is short. With careful planning, you can make the most of your time and still manage to get quite a bit of sightseeing done. Just decide what you’d like to do, hop into an Uber and head out!

What to explore
New Market is every street shoppers paradise. Sky is the limit when it comes to the variety of items you can find here. They say – if you can find it here, you can’t find it anywhere!
Sit by the Ganga and spend an endless evening soaking in the best of what the city has to offer – piping hot cups of tea and a perfect boat ride by the sunset. #ProTip : Negotiation is key.
Steak at Mocambo, chai at Cha Bar or a night of live music at Someplace Else – the opportunity cost of visiting Park Street is pretty darn high.
