"Siliguri in itself is not..."

  • Posted Feb 24, 2013
Siliguri in itself is not a great tourist place and it a stopover place for tourists going to the hills of Darjeeling, Nepal, Sikkim , Bhutan and the Dooars . But even then it is a city which is tourist friendly. It is well connected by roads to the tourists destinations and is also well connected by road, rail and air to rest of the country.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: As I mentioned above, SIliguri itself has not much tourist value except as a gateway to adjacent Nepal, Bhutan, Sikkim and the nearest Darjeeling hills. Most people venture across border to Nepal for shopping of indian and foreign goods at reasonable prices.

Activities & things to do: Not much in Siligiri per se.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Outsiders can avoid some cheap shady hotels which are a plenty in siliguri. It is not safe . For the hills, it is better to look for drivers and taxis from hills as many accidents have occurred with taxis from plains. The local drivers are more familiar of the topography of hills.

Siliguri Info

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

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
