Set on the Hooghli River, the city of Calcutta has many tales to tell of its past colonial times, local talents and food stories. The city was once the capital city of British India and as a result has one of the finest remnants of colonial architecture in the country. A guided tour takes you through the ‘European’ areas of the city exploring what was once the capital of the British Empire as you visit Dalhousie square, Victoria Memorial and St. Paul’s church. A visit to the flower market is an insightful experience. On the banks of the river, the Mullick Ghat Flower Market is eastern India’s largest flower market brimming with life and colour with hundreds of colourful stalls and large crowds of potential buyers. Experience Calcutta by the river on a Hoogli cruise to witness life and numerous landmarks, temples along the banks. Make further discoveries on special guided tours visiting local old and new bazaars (markets) or exploring how a myriad of cultures make up today’s cosmopolitan Calcutta.

Calcutta has now evolved as a city of many talents. The city is a melting pot of culture and communities. Locals are known for their humour, arts, poetry and politics. For foodies, this city is a paradise with great street food and an authentic local cuisine. Explore food stories on a food walking tour or learn new skills in a cooking class.
