Travel Tips from people who've been to Kolkata
The Salvation Army is a pretty good place to stay but often full, so have a back up.
The best way, and the cheapest, to get around the live and bustling city of Kolkata/ Calcutta is to travel in public buses !!
Kolkata is very well connected with its bus transport system. All one needs is to be-friend a localite to know which route bus to board.
You can get anywhere around Kolkata in just about
0.12 USD, that's about 6 Indian Rupees !!!!!
Precaution: Expect to get caught up in traffic. Bus journeys in Kolkata may take a longer time (25 kms ride takes about an hour's drive). The bus driver's usually take you on for a hell' of a ride......rattling n beeping their way across the city !! There are NO seat-belts....so be prepared. ALWAYS ask the bus conductor to inform you when you reach the destination of your choice.
Nevertheless.......its fun.... at no extra charge... the fares are always fixed.
