I visited digha with my gang of friends last month. Its a nice place to spend your weekend for the people reside in southern part of West bengal.

Digha is well connected by various routes like train and bus services. As we feel more comfortable on train so we choose it. Tamralipta superfast express is a nice train with average level of cleanliness and timing. The departure time is very good as you get the full day to enjoy on the sea beach. There are a lot of hotels and guest houses in Digha for night staying and the best thing is the place is very pocket friendly for common man.

The train route is good. There is a pantry car in the train. you can buy food from it. But if you like street food like jhalmuri, ghugni, samosa, chop then you will get vendors who are selling them. Toilet is clean enough for this short journey. As digha is a famous place for weekend trip we have to reserve our train seats a month earlier from our journey date.

The train was 30 minutes late. Apart from that journey is quite good. Train takes less time than bus or car to reach Digha. Timing is also good. Schedule time to reach Digha is 9.45am. We reached at 10.15pm approx. Still it took less time than bus. Bus takes normally 4.30hrs to 5hrs to reach Digha.

We went through AH45, sometimes we took shortcut but the road was not good everywhere. And journey was too long. There are no good restaurants besides the road so I never recommend this road. Anybody who wants to travel by car I recommend them to take NH 116B for a comfortable journey.

If your are opting for Puri or Digha - do check with this train because of the facilities provided. Neat & clean train with complimentary food or snacks as per the duration of the train. Must book your ticket at least 30 days ahead because this train is of high demand. The service provided are really good and the staffs are really helpful.

That was a nice Journey by Hwh-Digha Duronto Exp. AC was working properly. Toilet was clean. They serve food at proper time. Seat was good. But I suggest if they provide one more bottle of drinking water, it will be good. Food was good but not sufficient for lunch for adult man. As it was my 3 years back journey, so if changes happened in between, that I don't know. Otherwise journey was good.
