Namkhana Ferry Ghat
The river was flowing in its fullest speed and there were fishing boats around and we crossed that river just standing on the boat. On the other side we had to pay the tax as well which was Re 1 , unbelievable!!!Note: If you are going by your own car you will have to wait in a line to cross by the ferry so the other options are:Option 1: take a train from Howrah to Namakhana, cross the river by the passenger boat and take a cab or bus to Bakkhali.Option 2: Take cab till Namakhana nead the ferry point and take cross the river by the boat and then bus or cab to Bakkhali.Option 3: Take a bus till Namakhana and cross the river by boat and the take another bus or cab from the other side of the river to Bakkhali.Then we went to the bus stand where instead of waiting for the bus we opted a van as we were getting impatient to reach there. In 40 minutes we were at the gate of our hotel. It was Hotel Ambravati. Went to our rooms got fresh and ready to hit the beach it was dusk. The beach was not more than 400 meters away.

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.
