Day 02 Kolkata 加爾各答

After breakfast proceed for full day city tour of Kolkata.
Kolkata (Calcutta), is a city of glaring contrasts: a curious blend of the old and the new, partly feudal, partly born out of growing urbanisation, partly un-definable. It is a medley of the east and the west, a graft of an European city imposed on the Asian scape that gives Kolkata its bewildering charm, confusion and excitement. Being just about 300 years old, Calcutta hardly has many great historical monuments. Perhaps, the oldest remembered is the site where the Kalighat Temple now stands. Today Kolkata is the largest city in India with a population over 10 million and boasts of India's first ever Metro rail system. It is a city that shocks on first impression but eventually the visitor falls in love with it. The sightseeing of the city includes a visit to the Victoria Memorial, Kolkata's most imposing and monumental dream in marble opened by the Prince of Wales in 1921 and often called the "Taj" of the British Raj, St. Paul's Cathedral and the Indian Museum, the largest in India, with one of the best collections of Indian art.

DARJEELING 大吉嶺: Set at 7,000 ft/2,135 m, Darjeeling (pop. 73,000) is pretty resort built among tea plantations is one of the cool hill stations, where the rulers of the British Raj could escape the heat of the summer. The place now attracts tourists (primarily upper-class Indians) bent on the same advantages of natural air-conditioning. Darjeeling is built among hills, and visitors can expect to do a lot of climbing up and down stairs. There's not a lot to do except relax, listen to the Buddhist monks call the faithful to worship on their long, red horns and look at the pretty views. One sight worth mentioning is the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute, a training school for mountain climbers. Its museum features memorabilia from the first ascent of Everest, and documentary films are often shown (Sir Edmund Hillary's climbing partner, the Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, taught at the institute until his death in 1986). You can tour a tea plantation, there’s also Zoo (its main attractions are Siberian tigers and yaks), botanical gardens, two Buddhist monasteries, a racetrack and a cable car that connects Darjeeling to the village of Singla Bazar. From mid April until the end of June, it's usually possible to see Mt. Kanchenjunga, the third-highest mountain in the world, from town. The best view is at dawn atop Tiger Hill, 7 mi/11 km away. We're also told that Everest, 140 mi/225 km distant, can be seen. Mirik, about halfway between Darjeeling and Siliguri, is another hill resort. Mirik offers mountain views, a lake, and tea estates and is a good alternative if Darjeeling is fully booked.
