Places To Visit In West Bengal

A lush green paradise, a little rustic sometimes, West Bengal is a great place for a vacation. West Bengal points of interest are many, and needless to say each one is more beautiful than the other. There is a myriad of places to visit in West Bengal such as Darjeeling, The Sundarbans National Park, Mirik, Jaldapara National Park, Bankura, Siliguri, the Buxa Hills and many others. Of all these famous places in West Bengal, the most famous ones probably are Darjeeling. Every year tourists from all over the country flock to it, to see the snow covered hills from up close and enjoy the much talked about sunrises. Other hill stations in West Bengal include places such as Pedong, Sandakphu, Kurseong, Dooars Valley and a few others.

Sunderbans, Darjeeling tea plantations, Mandarmani Beach, Diamond Harbour, and Bakkhali are some of the places to visit in West Bengal in monsoon. Darjeeling, Kalimpong, Siliguri, and Lava are most visited tourist places in North Bengal. The Great Banyan Tree, Cooch Behar Palace, Hazarduari Palace, Bishnupur Terracotta Temples, and Belur Math are popular historical places in West Bengal worth visiting. 

The most important part about the state and the best tourist places in West Bengal is that it has something or the other to offer to people from all walks of life, all ages and of varied interests. In a state famed for its natural greenery, lakes in the backyards of every home, rich historical heritage and so much more, West Bengal welcomes all with open arms. Come here for the natural beauty, and you might end up staying longer than you intended for its simple, down to earth way of living and absolutely decadent cuisine.

There are several historical places in West Bengal that tell the stories of its glorious past, be it the time of the larger than life kings who ruled the land or when the British architects were at their prime. The state of West Bengal is full of behemoth buildings and monuments, palaces and temples; some of which have been turned into museums and heritage houses for people to enjoy and learn from, while still others have been allowed to run dilapidated. Kolkata itself houses many museums and ancient monuments that are a major throwback to the British era, making it another must visit the city when in West Bengal.

A majorly popular West Bengal tourist spot, Jalpaiguri is also a must visit if you are touring the state in its entirety. Jalpaiguri gives easy access to Kalimpong and Gangtok in Sikkim, Shillong in Meghalaya, Pokhara in Nepal and is a favorite stopover for those looking to cover these attractions near the state of West Bengal. There are a plethora of places to visit near West Bengal, such as Gaya in Bihar and Ranchi in Jharkhand, both places of historical and religious importance.

Some of the other famous tourist places of West Bengal include Malda for its mosques and mausoleums, Cooch Behar for its dense forestlands and palaces, Birbhum for Shantiniketan and other temples, and Taki for its beaches and proximity to the Bangladesh border. Make sure that you plan your trip for long enough to cover all of these attractions, and spend enough time to explore this beautiful state to your heart’s content.

    • 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

      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
