    TRAVEL TIPS
    • While the city is a pleasure to visit thoughout the year the choicest time to visit Kolkata is from October to February, after the monsoon, when the weather is the coolest and temperatures range from around 30-12 degree Celsius.
    • The easiest way to travel around Kolkata is to take a taxi. For getting around the city center, Kolkata's historic trams are useful. Kolkata is the only city in India to have an operating tram network, which also happens to be the oldest in Asia.
    • Howrah Bridge, the 74-year-old bridge that connects Kolkata to the adjacent city of Howrah over the Hooghly river, is an architectural and historical marvel. The bridge has no nuts and bolts and was instead formed by riveting the entire structure. With daily traffic of more than 100,000 vehicles and 150,000 pedestrians, the Howrah Bridge is also the busiest cantilever bridge in the world
    • Kolkata is home to India’s only Chinatown. The city once had a population of more than 20,000 Chinese Indians. Today, the community is made up of approximately 2,000 people. Terreti Bazaar or Old Chinatown is one of the city’s most vibrant neighborhoods with street stalls selling a range of delicious Indo-Chinese foods and Chinese medicines and herbs.
    • Kolkata plays host to one of the largest book fairs in the world. It is also home to the world’s second largest used book market. The city’s historic College Street is lined with book shops selling titles spanning genres and languages, all at dirt cheap prices. Many of these stores are more than a century old so there are opportunities to pick up the occasional rare copy or valuable first edition.
    • Mother Teresa Home – Mother Teresa, though she travelled and worked all over India, spent much of here time in Kolkata. The home and mission where Mother Teresa lived, and also her tomb, is now known throughout the city as Mother House. After visiting her tomb, you can view a small museum, and then see the room where Mother Teresa stayed and even the exact bed where she passed away.
    • Victoria Memorial – The Victoria Memorial Hall is one of the most iconic landmarks which Kolkata is famous for. Dedicated to Queen Victoria, the memorial (which is now a museum), was built using a combination of English and Mughal design
    • People in Kolkata converse in Bengali, Hindi and English. Phone/calling code of Kolkata is  +91 33
    • The currency in Kolkata is the Indian rupee (INR) therefore, make sure that you carry Indian rupees with you else there are many authorised money changers for your convenience.
