Great food and good prices come together to make it a great place for youngsters and adults alike to hang out. South City in Kolkata is also a good place to spend some time. During Durga Puja, the entire state becomes a hub for parties and the celebrations go well into the wee hours of the morning.

Food: West Bengal cuisine is famed all over the world, offering as many vegetarian options as there are non-vegetarian options. From cooking prawns in yam leaves to making fritters out of potato peels, the Bengalis are known for their innovation in the kitchen. Spicy to the hilt, and yet with a hint of sweetness to most dishes, Bengali cuisine ensures you leave wanting for more.

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      I must thank Sai tours and travels for the amazing experience i had during my solo trip to darjeeling- sikkim from 6th to 12th aug 2019. I had multiple issues from the time of booking however it was smoothly arranged and sorted by Mr Shivasish. I also had an amazing driver/guide Mr Binod who went an extra mile to make my birthday a memorable one. They made sure i had the best experience in every place i visited and also ensured i was safe and comfortable throughout.I celebrated my brithday there in a monastery and they were so thoughtful to get me a lovely cake and some candies to be distributed to the children in the monastery. Unlike regular tours and travels, they ensured there is a human touch to the services provided which in the end gave a high level of customer satisfaction. They look into the issues highlighted seriously and rectifies it as soon as possible to ensure customers and well taken care of. I will strongly recommend their service to any traveler especially if its your first time and you are not quite sure of whereabouts. I am very sure they can not only create a good and safe trip but also a memorable experience that you would cherish. gangtok , darjeeling

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      Hi all this is my first trip with TT and expected a lot . Thought this trip would be a memorable in my life but unfortunately its not , because of poor coordination , planning and communication . I missed few places like natulla pass and few others . Travel agent by name DEEPAK was very rude . Accomodation was not upto the mark as there were poor facilities like lack of hot water , door hinges were dangling and food issues . Travel agents ( Neeraj and deepak ) dont answer / reply to the calls and they didnt communicate propley. Shivani was helpful through watsap Rest all omg ...... 1. Driving ......really appreciate drivers .A big applause 2. Yumtung valley 3. Zero point 4. Lachung

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      Hotel Royal Sarvara in Darjiling was not so good as compared to rest of the hotels. Yumthang valley in Lachung was great. The landslides on the way back from Lachung to Gangtok was truoblesome but it was a great experience with a dash of adventure involved thus included in best memories.

    FAQ's of West Bengal

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    West Bengal is a great place for foodies. Try to savor the fish preparations here, and the sweets.

    You can club Sikkim and Orissa with your West Bengal trip.

    It is very hot and humid in West Bengal during the summers and the monsoons, so make sure to carry light and airy clothes if visiting during this time. For the winter months, carry light woolens.

    The ideal duration for a West Bengal tour depends on the destinations that the tourists wish to cover and the experiences they want to choose. A 4 nights, 5 day trip would ideally cover all major destinations in a hassle-free manner. However, if tourists wish to explore more offbeat destinations then a longer trip can be arranged. Consult the travel agents at Travel Triangle for more information regarding the same.

    Tourists should try to visit West Bengal during the winter months, from November to February
