Victoria Memorial in Kolkata

arrow pointing down

A bustling vibrant city

Kolkata is the real India, where you'll strike up conversations with locals and stroll the streets soaking it all up

Stroll down Park Street and eat cake at Flury’s, wander the art galleries at the Victoria Memorial, catch a local rock band at Someplace Else and sail up the Hooghly river at sunset. At some point the magic of Kolkata is going to hit you, and you’ll wonder why this vibrant city is really much better than you ever imagined.

One of the best things about being here is the conversations you strike up with locals – Kolkata is known as the intellectual and cultural capital of India, and people here love a good chat. So go out and enjoy it. Here you can also visit Mother Teresa’s homes, where you can volunteer if you plan on staying for a few days.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
