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

"Great trip in a great city"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
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).

"A very attractive view -Siliguri"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Oct 29, 2015
When I reached Siliguri I was amazed by its outside viewing. I saw the amazing view of Kanchanjanghya right from the station. In case of Darjeeling I have nothing more to say. It was fabulous. Tiger hill in early morning with clouds within touch you will feel amazing by sunrise. It was just awesome.
