Start your journey at 8:00 AM with the Hotel Pickup in a private AC cab and drive to different streets of Kolkata.
First Visit the Flower Market, one of the largest in India. The Market over here provides a paradise for street photographers with all the action and scenery of this market. We stay here for one hour.
Our Next stop known as Sudder Street is famous for tourist and backpackers due to its abundance of cheap hotels and eateries. From food carts, pulled rickshaws, Ambassador taxis, street vendors, cows, goats, smells, colors, and people everywhere you look. It’s never boring around Sudder Street.
Next, drive to the College Street, home of the largest second hand book market in the world. Small colorful book stalls line the streets for just under a mile. We stay here for 45 minutes.
Later as we head for our lunch, click the streets sitting in the car on the way to the restaurant.
After Lunch, we move to the Park Street, Lined with cafes, restaurants, bars and shops, it’s more upscale here than the rest of Kolkata. While it’s lost a little of its luster with more commercialization than the rest of Kolkata, it still retains some of its old world charm. Our duration of stay over here is around 40 minutes.
Next we drive to our last destination for the day known as Queens Way/Victoria Memorial; The Victoria Memorial is a large marble building on Queens Way that was built over a century ago in dedication to the memory of Queen Victoria. Now it’s also a museum, but the reason you should come here for Street Photography isn’t for the building, but for the 64 acres of grounds and gardens surrounding it.
