Kolkata, also known as the 'City of Joy', is a city that beautifully embodies the Indian native traditions with the ghosts of its colonial past and now is slowly moving to reform itself in the lines of a modern India. The city was the first capital of the British who ruled India for 200 years. Thus, it has a lot of structures that were built during the time of the British rule in India. Visit the famous Victoria Memorial and Howrah Bridge and take a Tonga Ride to the St. John's Church. You will also enjoy the delicious Bengali cuisine for lunch!

Returning to the airport, if you take the bus from Dum Dum Junction, be aware that you won't be able to actually see the terminal from the point where the bus drops you off. Look for a hole in the wall, and go through it. You will walk across a small open park to get to the terminal.
