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 Bali

      quite mix off emotions initially it went superb and we enjoyed a lot, our driver come guide was helpful, but there was always a communication gap as he was not able to communicate properly in English. on the 3rd day we were supposed to go to candle light dinner in the night. we got free from day tour by approx 4 pm and then we suggested driver to drop us at hotel and let us get ready then we will go to Dinner. driver refused to do so stating the itinerary doesn't include back to hotel and then dinner. we reached the dinner place at 5 pm evening and we found dinner will start after 7 pm. this was disappointing as we wanted to have special event of candle light dinner, for which we could not get ready and unnecessarily wait for more than 2 hours. I said, i cannot wait this long and let us go back to hotel, driver thought i want to cancel the dinner and he informed restaurant that cancel the dinner, he took my sign on the note and cancel the dinner. eventually i came to know that my money went west as i wont be getting any compensation for this in term of any other service or monetory. Apart from this over all it was a good experience. felt much more can happen in given time period last but not the list, thank you travel triangle and wings of fly to give me a unforgettable honeymoon experience

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      Overall the trip was good and memorable. I felt arrangements could have been better in few places. - Constantly I felt lack of co-ordination b/w trip anthem and local cab vendors - Cabs services and driver friendliness in Bengal were not up to mark - Darjeeling hotel was rodent infested, avoid booking for others Relished the experience in Sikkim thoroughly

    • Trip to Bhutan

      Nice one trip. We are veg. Hotels in Bhutan less food variety. Less Spicy food. Only problem we feel. Else its best. AD tours nicely arrange trip. Tips 1) U can go from Alipurdurar railway station west bengal which is 60 km from Phunsheling. 2) Alipurdurar is 300km from Guwahati. 3) The drive and Road side view from Phunsheling to Thimpu are best. 4) All Indian currancy Rs.10 to Rs 2000 accepeted. 5) Shopping at Phunsheling is better in small market near immigration office.

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      We had a very memorable trip through Sikkim and little bit of West Bengal. The hotels provided were satisfactory for us and dint have any issues. The drivers in Gangtok, Lachen and Lachung were very good, so were the cabs; but the condition of the cabs were not so great in Pelling, Kalimpong and Darjeeling. The driver in Kalimpong was the worst as he came in late and refused to cover all the sites in the itenary. On top of this, the driver asked us to pay the parking fees everywhere, even when it was already included in the package. I have been promised that it will be refunded, but I am yet to receive the same. The disappointment was that in spite of me reporting this to the tour operator they instead of being considerate and understanding to us, were actually defending the drivers and their deeds. One more thing i got to know very late was the fact that in Gangtok, they have restrictions for certain vehicles to not enter the main city between 8 am to 8 pm. This should have been informed well in advance to us. Also, dint have any support from the Travel Triangle persons in this regard. Overall i still feel we enjoyed the trip in spite of some of the difficulties we faced through out, all because the place itself is so mesmerizing.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      I had a wonderful experience with sunshine travels. Although I had done booking a month back, but just before a couple of days it was informed that border gates will be closed owing to general elections happening in West Bengal. Still Lalit ensured to get necessary approvals so that we have a smooth entry in Bhutan. He was very supportive and available at all times. In fact there was some issue in arranging vehicle (wagon R) in bhutan so Lalit informed me from beforehand that he might have to book a bigger vehicle (creta) for which i will have to pay some marginal amount more and only if I confirm he will book it. Driver Namgay who was also a tour guide was phenomenal. He showed us around , guided us and even when we decided to include Punakha town in our trip besides earlier planned Thimphu and Paro, he was very accommodative. His pleasant personality and hospitality added to the charm during the trip. Honestly speaking, I had booked first time from travel triangle through a local agent ( all previous trips were through MMT , Thomas Cook etc) but this time my dates were not matching so I decided to do it through travel triangle and sunshine travels. I am really happy for this decision as it turned out to be a memorable trip. Hotels were good in Thimphu and Paro and Phuntshoeling hotel was decent considering the place. I will recommend sunshine travel to anyone travelling to Bhutan.

    • Trip to Europe

      Overall it was an excellent tour of Vienna, Budapest and Prague. Some point of improvement for the agent or things which can be taken care by new travelers... 1. Searching for cab driver after landing at the Vienna airport was tough. 2.Rooms of Ramada encore in Vienna and IBIS in Budapest were very small. 3. There was no electric water heating machine ( used for tea/coffee) in IBIS-Budapest and Fortuna west-Prague, so it was little problem for us. 4. Fortune-West hotel in Prague was far away from the main city. 5.We should have been informed that exchange price in India is best as compared to European countries. Excellent response time, proactive and very professional. Special Appreciation to Agent- Daman, who designed my entire itinerary and made all the bookings

    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
