About the Book

Blessed with lofty mountains, nurturing rivers, verdant forests and unspoilt beaches, the beautiful state of West Bengal is a tourist’s dream come true. Its strategic location at the mouth of the mighty Ganga has enticed travelers and colonizers through the ages to settle in this bounteous land to produce a rich and diverse culture.

At the heart of this great land lies Kolkata – once capital of the British empire in India; home of revolutionary minds and movements that shaped modern Indian history; hub of art, literature, theatre and cinema – a city whose soul endears itself to even the most hardened sightseer.

West Bengal Travel Guide takes you on an illustrated tour of this magical land, from the Dooars crowned by imposing peaks in the north, to the historically significant central districts, the western tracts known for their red, laterite soil, the bustling megapolis of Kolkata and finally, the dense forests of the Sunderbans in the south, home to the Royal Bengal Tiger. Along the way, it covers nearly a hundred destinations, both big and small, that are sure to excite the curious visitor.

Highly visual, with over 450 specially-commissioned photographs, this is a perfect companion not just for the intrepid tourist but also the armchair traveler.

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
