West Bengal

Calling itself the "sweetest part of India," West Bengal boasts a distinctly local cuisine in which sweets take pride of place. Sweet dishes remain a key part of the area's diet, and sweet treats are traditionally distributed to friends, relatives, and guests during major festivals. If you prefer to avoid a visit to the dentist after your vacation in West Bengal, head for the landscape that stretches from the lush Himalayan foothills in the north to the humid Bay of Bengal mangroves in the south. Away from the state's big cities, you can discover a fertile countryside of small coastal hamlets within easy striking distance of ancient Hindu temples and palaces. Our India trip planner allows you to schedule your trip to West Bengal, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
