Started our journey from Howrah Station to New Digha by Tamralipta Express which was on time. The seats were good but the condition of the toilets were pathetic and seats near the toilet gave you a horrible experience during the train journey. The train should be cleaned properly otherwise railway will soon loose it's potential passengers for this route.

The journey was very smooth as it takes 3 hr 20 min to reach Digha with minimum stoppages. AC and non-AC seating reservations were available with very reasonable fare. Veg and non-veg food were offered by the railway catering but we didn't dare to take it.

The journey was accompanied by the picturesque villages, lush green paddy fields, rivers, canals, bridges and the smiles of children who will be waving their hands to you.

Since Kolkata is a city full of traffic and roads are terrible, hence, a drive along the highway to Digha is quite comforting. If weather is cool then the drive becomes more better which in our case was good as it was a winter day. Its a total of 180 km from the outskirts of Kolkata to reach Digha. One has to pass by a lot of small towns which are very crowded so driving has to be proper. Moreover since almost of the distance is single road and narrow highway so one always has to be cautious about the traffic which usually are tourist buses and cars.

For shorter destination and weekend travels I always rely on travelling by my own car. As usual this time also I visited Digha by my own car. The road to Digha is in very good condition except some few stretches where road widening work is going on. It took 4 hours to cover the distance from my home and the car was sedately driven and relaxed and no over speeding.

I followed this route Kona Expressway, Kolaghat, Nandakumar, Contai, Digha. One can stop at Kolaghat for break and refreshments. There is the famous Azad Hind Dhaba. I stopped there on my return journey but the onward journey I went non stop.

After Nandakumar on Digha state highway there are occasional sharp turns and speed breakers so it is advised to be cautious on that route.

A three hour 15 mins journey by Tamralipta Exp was a pleasant one. Boarded from Howrah Station at 6.40 am and reached Digha at 10 am. The punctuality of departure and arrival was noteworthy. The train has a pantry car which serves breakfast with no choice - bread and omelette. The chops from vendors at Mecheda Station is a must have. The train especially the wash-rooms need attention.

After a splendid stay at the Tourist Lodge in Darjeeling a few years back I eagerly looked forward to a great stay during a short weekend trip to Digha and I must say that I was completely satisfied. A two nights stay at this property is a reaffirmation of the fact that with a bit of effort,...more »

The bus was classy and as we went in summer, it was awesome to have a nice air conditioning system. The conductor was behaving nicely and there was TV for entertainment. Seats were comfortable too. Though the bus started late but we all know it always start a little late and overall experience was good.
