  • We have just now transferred from Mumbai to Vadodara and I had to look after the relocation since my husband had to join the office earlier. I am pleased to say that the experience with Southern Cargo Movers and Packers was simply amazing. The staff took complete care of everything and I need not worry about the safe and smooth transit of my valuable stuff.

  • I hired Sothern Cargo for household relocation and the vehicle was stuck in between due to floods. The company took proper care of it and diverted the vehicle to alternate route. Though I received the things 2 days late, but everything was intact. Company officials kept me informed about the proceedings timely and helped incredibly. Great service, Cheers!

Newbie?

For all the newbies arriving at Kolkata, it is imperative to learn a catch phrase in Bengali – Dada. You need directions to a place? Approach a man, address him as ‘dada’ and he will gladly point you to the right direction.

Getting into a cab? Address the cabbie as ‘dada’ before you tell him your destination. He will never turn you down. Getting into a sweet shop? Add a ‘dada’ after you place your order and rest assured of a discount in your bill worth a few rupees and if you are lucky, you may also get to taste a new ‘sample’ all free of cost.

The oldest metro line in India runs in Kolkata and is totally underground. The tram, which was shut in Mumbai years back still ply on the busy streets of Kolkata and provide for a joy ride across the city.

For your Taste Buds

A literary scholar once said “you have not visited a place if you have not tasted its local cuisine”. And if you want to prove this statement right, there are a countless number of places where you can indulge your taste buds, and if you are willing, even take them for a ride.

Be your preference vegetarian or non vegetarian, spicy or bland, traditional or fusion, there is always a plethora of options on offer. Some of the best places where you can pick your choice are:

Best street food in Kolkata

Top restaurants in Kolkata

Apart from the traditional Shukto or Kumro’r Chhechki or even Bhaapa Ilish (Steamed Hilsa) or Kosha Mangsho, you will find plenty of fine dine restaurants all over the city, including the interiors.

Place to Stay

Depending upon your duration of visit, you will find plenty of options ranging on all budget. You can find hotels with their per day rent as low as 150 bucks to as high as 14,000 bucks. If you wish to stay for a longer duration and want to rent out a place, again there are several available options depending on your budget.

A rent out at a place like Salt Lake or Bhavanipur will be expensive and a rent out at a place like Hooghly or Chandan Nagar will be comfortable on your pocket. As in all places you can share your room with friends or co workers to reduce the impact on your pocket.

If you are a student on budget, the best place to find good and cheap accommodation will be College Street. You will be at a place from where nothing is too far and everything that you may possibly need is just a stone’s throw away.

You can do your research well in advance before arriving into the city and the best place to find accommodation online is this link:

For the Enthusiastic Feet

If going around and exploring the city is your motto, there are again, as always, countless number of places that you can visit. If history and architecture excites you, the Howrah Bridge or the Victoria memorial will be of interest to you.

If you are interested in literature or movies, then the Writers’ Building is a must visit. If you are spiritual minded, then Kalighat or the Dakshineshwar temple on the banks of Ganges simply cannot be missed. If you want to go shopping, Gariahat or Naihati are the two major shopping areas of the city.

If village life excites you, move a little further away from the city and Jhargram or Shyamnagar will take you ages back into the past.

Be sure to visit Kolkata if you wish to be surprised at every moment.
