Hi, Road Trips are always a great experience. Have done the east costal route on bike few time back. If you are taking the coastal route via Visakhapatnam - Chilika-cuttack- Balasore- Kharagpur- Kolkata-Bardhaman - Faraka-Islampur-Siliguri. You will enjoy the route, however not sure if the constructions are completed or not between Balasore to Khargpur. Construction was in full swing when I was riding from Sikkim to Vizag. You can enjoy place like Gopalpur Beach, Chilika Lake, Dhauli, by taking little diversion can visit Puri & Konark on this route. Also can drop in Digha as well as Shantiniketan if taking some small diversion from main route. Chandipur is another calm and composed beach in Bay of Bengal you can visit if passing Balasore during day time which is around 25KM from your highway. Else you may take route via Nagpur Lucknow Garakhpur this route will provide you pure city and highway experience. You are asking advise regarding what? Should you take this road trip or not in regards to covid guidelines? If that's the question, WB Govt allowing tourist with negative RTPCR so no worries and Siliguri is a beautiful city and gateway to North East Himalayan range, from where you can also visit Darjleeng Sikkim and many other north eastern destination. Must go through the Mahananda National Park near Sevak you probably like the scenic route there, if you visiting Siliguri. So you should visit and enjoy your road trip. Happy Traveling :) See You on the Road...👌👌
