A guide for inter-terminal travel in Kolkata.
HWH-SDAH / SDAH-HWH:
If you alighting at Howrah jn. , and wish to go sealdah station , then opt prepaid taxi. The taxi counter and fare is under complete control of Howrah Police and they will help you for alloting the taxi to safety. But i beware you , there are two prepaid counters and both are always in long queue. Instead you can pre-book your taxi by this Howrah police website- etaxi.howrahcitypolice.in/
How much is the bus fare?
Its i think 10Rs per person Howrah to sealdah as far as i remember. But i can't say confirm as here i travelled last time in the month of December 2015.
Bus fare was Rs 8 from HWH to SDAH, but in return journey conductor charged Rs 9
I travelled a month back and HWH-SDAH was Rs. 8
ATVMs are available in the opposite side of Upper Class Waiting room , near Enquirer Counter also. A total of 5 ATVMs are available in SDAH
For This you should render Exact Fare
This station is situated in the middle of the city. So, most of the sites are easily accessible from here. You can start with the nearest place which is rather a rarely visited place. This is a church near Sealdah Main.
Around Dharmatlalla, there many places to visit. You can take a glimpse at the Shaheed Minar and at the Mecca of Cricket Eden Gardens. Besides, visit St. Paul's Cathedral and the famous National Museum and Victoria Memorial (don't return from its front garden; visit the inside too).
Take a stroll along Red
eta te red mark ke dilo ???
Jei dik, amar kichhu jai ase na.
If you are planing for visiting Kolkata and your train is coming to HWH then go
to SDAH . There are lot of hotels there. Hotels at HWH are very less and
full always don't know why :-)
Asoka hotel should be preferred
Please also provide (if possible) general rates and quality of hotels. You may also recommend any good nearby hotels which are economical and provide good value for the price.
Hotel Neeranand Dalhousie, Shah House, Bara Bazaar Market, P-34 India Exchange Place, Near Tea Board, Kolkata (Calcutta)
If you eventually got to move from HWH then why would you go to SDAH instead which is horribly congested and MG Road , CR Avenue in between...best is to go to Park Steet or Esplanade area...100's of options are waiting there !!
