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.

Train was running as usual a bit delayed. But food was not of any quality. One has to pay hefty amount without any choice. I opine to change the food delivery format to optional and varieties to be introduced. It was a brief train journey and nothing spectacular was expected. We reached after 20 minutes of scheduled time. Outside the station getting auto etc was a mess. No prepaid booth. Only chaos and middlemen were there troubling us. Pre-booking of hotels helped us to avoid middlemen. Rest was OK.

The journey from Kolkata to Digha was not so good because it requires 5 hours to reach the destination. It was so tedious journey as because the seats were not so good and the route was not so good. Overall the travel experience was not so good by bus.

If you want to go to Digha and enjoy the sightseeing by train then this is a special locale train which is very good. The speed of the train is really and good food vendors all through the way. The sightseeing from the train is good and the bad thing is that it does not have any bathroom otherwise it is a good train and plenty of seats.

Itís wonderful to travel by own car especially by driving on self basis, overall roads are not perfect but till highway one can manage to drive on single road, sometimes it is little bit frustrating. But overall itís good to drive and reach such tourist destination by own.
