Shopping and Souvenirs: Culcutta is a nice city for shopping. So that I think Calcutta is called "The City Of Joy". There is everything available at here. And those can get by very useful price. In Culcutta, there is also availability of Branded Garments, Shoe & many more things. And that is sold with various stocks. Nowadays, Calcutta became a large shopping center in India.

General opinion: Really, Calcutta(Kolkata) is meant for the CITY OF JOY, being a gazetted officer, i certify this. I transferred from other city, felt some difficulties during initial 2-3 months only due to some language problem, but that is ignorable and may be enjoyed. I was thinking that peoples of BANGLADESH feels MORE comfortable than other part of this country due to their fluency in the bangla language. I appreciate the city for its co-operative and respective attitude, discipline, faith, equality and standards(of food, transport and services in cheap rate). Some attention required on Road Quality, Work Culture, Union-ity in every sector. Overall respect and my salute for the city.

Best Period to Go: October to March is the best time to visit Calcutta. It was a short stay in November 2013 but really enjoyed it. People are very welcoming. Just one advise avoid going to isolated places after 9 pm. As my stay was quite short I hired a guided tour company named Let's Meet Up Tours... and they were just fantastic. In a short notice they arranged for a full day Calcutta city tour and I was accompanied by Indu, the explorer. She was very informative and really made my day.

Surroundings and tours: Very good surroundings. Visit to nearby places also very chip. Only you should take care when visiting to holy places except Dakshineswar, a holy place where Thakur Ramakrishna has passed most of his spirituael lives. Budget hotels are available near Shyambazar and Sealdah. Aristrocrate and good hotels are mostly situated near bypass and Alipur also at Esplanade.

Eating and Drinking: Never pass on Bengali or Chinese food. Kolkata of course is famous for its sweets and mishti doi and the obvious, fish. However, not many people know that the best Chinese food in the country is found in Calcutta. The street side Chinese around Exide is good, Mainland China is a big name, but leagues of great Chinese restraunts flock Calcutta. Don't forget to visit Chinatown at Tyangra.

Eating and Drinking: Kolkata has a huge number of food courts in malls. THe city also has a lot of restraunts especially on PArk Street. The people of kolkata make any food with all their heart. The roll corners are very nice. They are very tasty. Also the specialty bengali food is extremely yummy. The last point is that it is quite cheap but the food is of very good quality.

General opinion: Calcutta is overcrowded and the transportation is not good. Language problem is there, people speak mostly in Bengali only. People from other states cannot understand the local language. English language use is at a minimum, compared to what it is in Bombay.

General opinion:  Calcutta, now known as Kolkata, is the capital of the Indian state of West Bengal. Located on the banks of the Hooghly River, it is a vivacious city famous for its radical history. It is the fourth largest city in India with a populace of about six million people.
Calcutta is represented by a tropical climate wherein summers are long and hot while winters are short and mild. Winters last for a very short while, whereas summers often bring with them spells of thunderstorms. The city experiences heavy rains which bring a relief from the heat.
Calcutta was the capital ... More of India till 1912. The city experienced an economic decline after independence but it bounced back soon during the Indian IT boom. Today, many multinational companies are based here and the city is on its way to progress.
