Siliguri Info

  • State: West Bengal
  • Famous for/as: Hill
  • District: Darjeeling

The second largest city in West Bengal, Siliguri lies in the shadows of the mighty Himalayas, in a narrow strip of land just 40 km wide at its broadest section often referred to as the Chicken's Neck. Its strategic location makes it the main gateway to the north-eastern states, Sikkim, Gangtok, and even neighbouring nations like Bhutan, Nepal and Bangladesh. Siliguri is also the connecting point to many of West Bengal's hill-stations like Darjeeling, Kalimpong and Kurseong. Progressively developing into a prominent centre of trade and commerce for the northeast, Siliguri is today a metropolis that is bustling with commercial activity. However, in addition to its unique location, the city also boasts lush green environs, interspersed with tea plantations, rolling hills and meandering rivers, as well as a pleasant climate through most of the year.  

 

Sightseeing Highlights:

 

Although generally used as a transit stop en route to the surrounding hill stations, Siliguri has many noteworthy attractions of its own. The North Bengal Science Centre, in the city's northern suburbs, features many scientific experiments and gadgets. It also hosts a Nature Interpretation

"Good trip"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
We booked through we care travels for 5 day Gangtok Darjeeling tour for which Ajay Sharma made excellent arrangements which comforted us a lot thanks to Mr Ajay Sharma. Gangtok was very neat and clean compared to Darjeeling if you have chance spend more days in Gangtok than Shillong regarding clothes just a simple shawl was enough because we stayed there in June.

"Very wonderful experience"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
I went there for a business trip and I didn't have more time to explore the city. I was free from meeting at around 6 and then I went to Hong Kong market and City Centre. In Hong Kong market you have to do a lot of bargaining. City Centre is a nice place to spend some time.

"Great trip in a great city"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 25, 2016
My entire trip was great and fruitful except the hotel. One should be always very careful while selecting a hotel. The city of Siliguri was great. Though I was there for official purposes I took time to visit the Hong Kong market and took a ride on the Toy Train.

"A nice city to see as well as to shop"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Dec 27, 2015
A good place to roam in the foot of the hills. Kanchanjangha can be seen from the station itself. Besides hong-kong market and other places are there in the city that can be visited. Varieties of food can be taken for amusement. And also if time permits some sanctuary and national parks were nearby that can be visited.

"One of the best cities - Siliguri"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Nov 22, 2015
I used to go Siliguri at least once a year as my very near relatives are there. The best place in north Bengal where we can start our journey towards Drjeeling, Sikkim, Bhutan, and Jungle safari. A good place with friendly people. Clean city with good market like Hong kong market (Place to buy foreign goods like basic electronics, watch, camera, various gadget, tower, dress etc).
