Synopsis

'Lonely Planet guides are, quite simply, like no other'. New York Times

This eBook offering is an excerpt of Lonely Planet's latest India guide book and includes:

  • Kolkata (Calcutta) chapters
  • Understanding India
  • Kolkata (Calcutta) maps

India's second-biggest city is a daily festival of human existence, simultaneously noble and squalid, cultured and desperate. Friendlier than India's other mega-cities, this is a city you 'feel' more than simply visit.

This guide is the result of research by dedicated authors and local experts who immersed themselves in Kolkata (Calcutta), finding unique experiences, and sharing practical and honest advice, so you come away informed and amazed. This guide includes up-to-date reviews of the best places to stay, eat, sights, cultural information, maps, transport tips and a few best kept secrets - all the essentials to get to the heart of Kolkata (Calcutta).

Coverage includes:

  • Understanding India: India Today, History, The Way of Life, Spiritual India, Delicious India, The Great Indian Bazaar, Sacred Architecture, The Arts, Elephants & Tigers: India's Sanctuaries, The Landscape, Directory, Transport and Glossary
  • Sights, Activities, Tours, Sleeping, Eating, Drinking, Entertainment and Shopping.

Lonely Planet's India guide is researched and written by: Sarina Singh, Stuart Butler, Katja Gaskell, Anirban Mahapatra, Daniel McCrohan, John Noble, Amy Karafin, Kevin Raub, Trent Holden, Lindsay Brown, Mark Elliott, Kate James, Michael Benanav, Bradley Mayhew, Abigail Hole
