West Bengal is an enormous state, and the experience offered by it are in proportion to its size. It is dotted with heritage destinations and offers its fair share of adventure tourism. While Kolkata, its capital city, is rich in culture and boasts monuments dating back to the colonial era, there are other places which you must see if you want to enjoy the different colours of this state. You come across cities which are cultural hotspots and once served as capital of different kings and dynasties. Watching a Baul performance is as intoxicating as gorging on the sweetmeats that it is famous for.

In the northern part of the state, Duars with its tea gardens and wide open plains, appears like a well written poetry by nature. In Darjeeling, you find out the reasons behind its being called the “queen of the hills”, and as you go further up, a world symbolizing purity opens itself before your eyes. Arts and crafts, dance, music and theatre are pursed with a passion, as you find out after staying a while here. A family vacation is as appealing as a honeymoon gateway, as there are enough places catering to both. What is certain is, visiting West Bengal endows you with a rich travel experience.

Kolkata, the capital city of West Bengal, is a cultural potpourri, dotted with museums, art galleries, temples and colonial era buildings. One of the most famous of the latter is the Victoria Memorial. Recognisable from a distance by its Angel of Victory which sits atop the structure and blows with the wind, it consists of 25 galleries housing a remarkable collection of paintings, artefacts, textiles, coins and possessions belonging to the Queen. Other structures reminding you of the British presence are Bow Barracks, Calcutta High Court and St. Paul’s Cathedral. Those possessing an interest in science should head towards Birla Industrial & Technological Museum, and Science City. A day of fun and entertainment is best spent at Nicco Park and Aquatica, where the water rides, swings, rain disco and other attractions make your day. Visit the Academy of Fine Arts to enjoy a theatre performance or admire paintings displayed by famous painters.
