Thailand - Phuket Sailing

24 hours in Kolkata

Widely considered the cultural capital of India, Kolkata is situated on the banks of the river Hooghly in the eastern state of West Bengal. Rich in colonial charm, it houses two landmark bridges, noteworthy palaces, and cathedrals, as well as bustling markets and a colourful tramline. Historically, it has always been at the forefront of modern thought and creativity. In recent years, this has given birth to a new breed of designers and artists who are taking the entire country by storm. Heritage structures, public festivals, and indigenous cuisine all compete for attention in this artistic city.
