West Bengal

Bengal is undoubtedly the most diverse travel destination of this part of the world. Stunning snow clad Himalayas and world famous tea gardens in the north to sand soaked beaches and evergreen mangrove forests of Sunderban – home to The Royal Bengal Tigers in the south to red soils, bauls and cultural centre of Santiniketan of Birbhum, terracotta of Bankura and aboriginal tribes of Purulia in the west and royalties of Malda and Coachbihar – attractions are just endless.

And then there is our very own Kolkata with its rich cultural history and diversity. Four of the five noble laureates of Indian Citizenship are from Kolkata. In fact Rabindra Nath Tagore was the first noble laureate from Asia. Kolkata remains the cradle for writers, poets, artisans, theatre personalities, film personalities, social thinkers and reformers, spiritual leaders for centuries. Kolkata is truly the Cultural Capital of India. Politically and financially too it was the most important city in Asia for almost couple of centuries. And never forget to taste the Bengali delicacies and sweets.
