Midnapore
Talking about West Bengal's most popular sea resort, Digha was known as Beerkul during the times of Warren Hastings. This place was discovered in the 18th Century by the British. Later a poet named John Frank Smith loved this place and settled here in 1923. His writings have prominent mention of this beach in a number of places and he was the one who later requested former Chief Minister of West Bengal, Dr. Bidhan Chandra Ray to declare this as a sea resort. The natural beauty of this place is picturesque. The shores are lined with casuarina trees which also help in preventing erosion of the sand dunes here. This is a shallow beach with soft waves and thus it is a perfect beach for swimming. There are also a number of tourist resorts around for you to stay. The sunrise and sunset are both beautiful from here.

Weekend Getaways from Medinipur  

Kolkata, or Calcutta (also Cal), is a kaleidoscopic melting pot of cultures and ethnicities. There's quite possibly no Indian festival that the city doesn't celebrate with glorious hoopla. Each month sees small festive marquees popping up at every corner of the street and come October, throngs of women enwrapped in silk sarees and red bindis convene around the city, undeterred by the ever-present rains. This celebration alone is reason enough to travel to Kolkata. From the glut of vibrant attractions, the city also holds a rich vehicular heritage ranging from the big yellow taxi that floods both parts of the city (Calcutta and Howrah) divided by the reticent river Hoogly, to the hand-pulled rickshaws and rickety trams meandering the roads. Tourists will hardly ever run out of things to do in Kolkata. Starting from Kumartuli, a traditional potters’ quarter, famed for its sculpted idols of gods and demons, to the architectural spectacle, that is the Howrah Bridge, Kolkata city will engulf you with its sights, sounds and scents. Calcutta’s biggest, most prismatic wholesale flower market on Mullick Ghat, Victoria Memorial, the old Chinatown Tiretta Bazaar, the magnificent Nakhoda Masjid and Jorasankho (Rabindranath Tagore’s ancestral home) are few of the most picturesque places to visit in Kolkata.
