Your journey will begin at 8.00am with a hotel pick-up in a private AC cab and drive to different streets of Kolkata. First you'll visit the Mullick Ghat Flower Market, one of the largest in India. The market provides a paradise for street photographers with all the action and scenery of this market. You will stay here for one hour.
Following, you will travel to Sudder Street, famous for tourist and backpackers due to its abundance of cheap hotels and eateries. From food carts, pulled rickshaws, Ambassador taxis, street vendors, cows, goats, smells, colors, and people everywhere you look. It’s never boring around Sudder Street. Next, you'll drive to College Street, home of the largest second hand book market in the world. Small colorful book stalls line the streets for just under a mile. You will stay here for 45 minutes.
After lunch, you will move to Park Street, lined with cafes, restaurants, bars and shops, it’s more upscale here than the rest of Kolkata. While it’s lost a little of its luster with more commercialization than the rest of Kolkata, it still retains some of its old world charm. the duration of your stay is around 40 minutes.
Next you will be driven to our last destination for the day known as Queens Way/Victoria Memorial; The Victoria Memorial is a large marble building on Queens Way that was built over a century ago in dedication to the memory of Queen Victoria. Now it’s also a museum, but the reason you should come here for street photography isn’t for the building, but for the 64 acres of grounds and gardens surrounding it.
