The train was crowded so much, that we had to stand for 3 hours continuously. It is better not to travel by train if you have family. Better to take bus directly. You can take your seating. Otherwise you have to get down at Namkhana Station then take van to ferry ghat then again van and then again bus for 45 min.

It is best to start early in the morning by your own car. The Diamond Harbour road remains quite less claustrophobic and you can take it to reach Bakkhali within 3. 5 to 4 hours.

There are several dhabas on both sides of the road. We stopped at Chacha's after crossing Diamond Harbour station. The view from vessel on the Hatania-Doania river is also an awesome sight. Don't forget to take sunglasses and try to start early in the morning.

We went there by West Bengal Surface Transport Corporation (WBSTC) Bus. There were 3 buses from Dharmatala to direct Bakkhali. Timings are 7 am, 8 am and 2 pm and fare was Rs 90 per head. We went by the 2 pm bus. The bus service was good and the bus speed was very good. The allotted time for the journey was 5 hours from Dharmatala but they made it in 4.30 hrs. Bus took the national highway 117 which is great. The road was very good. We reached Bakkhali at 6.30 pm. We checked in at Hotel Amarabati. The journey was not comfortable because of the seats in the bus. They are fixed just like any other WBSTC Bus. We got very tired that day.

It was a unique experience, we visited Diamond Harbour and Hatania Doania on the way of Bakkhali. We started our journey at 6am. We took some light food from Sarisha after a long drive we reached Diamond Harbour. We seated beside the river and watched the scenic view of the river. Then we started our journey. We both were excited when we reached. Hatania Doania river, found so many fishing boat and ship were ready go for fishing; after crossing the river I drive a long and reached Bakkhali.
