Availed 12847 - Howrah - Digha Super AC Express. Very poor condition of the Train. Food was below average quality. Availed 12848 - Digha - Howrah Super AC Express while returning. The same Train, same reck, very poor condition. Snacks were below standard. As a whole a depressing and disappointing experience. Not worth paying so much money. It would be better if only few cups of Tea is served instead of Food and Snacks.

Roads are newly constructed and smooth. You need to follow few stoppages and roads guids. It was very pleasant road trip for me. 3 hrs road journey full of scenic views. After taking 1. 30 mins ride you will reach Sher-e-punjab which is one of the most popular Dhaba near Kolaghat stoppage.

Hi guys.
Today I am expressing my opinion on most popular Digha Beach, West Bengal, India. Over crowded small Beach situated about 200 km away from Kolkata. Yoy will get lots of Hotels and Lodge's to stay at Digha but not 4 or 5 star hotels. Beaches are not so clean and well planned for...more »

I would like to suggest the travelers to pick Tamralipta Exp. Because it departs Howrah station at morning, so then anyone can easily reach Digha within 10. 00 am.
Also this train departs from Digha at 10. 200 am. So in my view the time is manageable for all.

The Duronto has been renamed now as "Digha Super AC Express". It took only 3 hours during onward journey and 20 minutes more during return journey. Since it takes short spell, so I preferred it over other trains.
Food / refreshment and 1 bottle of mineral water are served in this train, so a traveler is not required to carry those items personally.
Toilets were clean and support of service staff war good.

This one departs Howrah Station at 6:40 am and reaches Digha by 10 am. If you can manage to get up early and catch this train then you have got a full day in Digha. Better book in advance, especially during weekend and holidays. There is a pantry car and they serve breakfast. The train is fairly punctual. I suggest AC chair car.

I have visited Digha and number of times since 1980 and tried many hotels in Old and New Digha areas. I found out Sea Hawk is the best place to stay. Situated in Barrister Colony, Old Digha, this hotel is only a 5/6 minutes ride from railway station by car or motorized van-rickshaw and a 5...more »

How to reach from Kolkata to Digha

By Bus – Direct Kolkata to Digha buses are available and these are most popular as they are considered to be the most economical means of transport between Kolkata and Digha. So many government buses are providing services from Kolkata to Digha. Burdwan, Sahispur and Madhupur are the main bus stops in this route. To travel to Digha from Kolkata, it takes around 4 hours.

By Train – Kolkata to Digha trains are also available and the time take to cover the distance from Kolkata to Digha is approximately 3 hours. On most days, the Duronto Express leaves Howrah at 11:15 am and arrives at Digha in 2 hours and 30 minutes. These timings should be checked before you make travel plans in case they are changed for whatever reason.

By Flight – Kolkata to Digha flights are unavailable in this route. So if one had included a Kolkata to Digha flight in their itinerary, this will have to be changed and an alternative to cover the Kolkata to Digha distance will have to be planned.

By Cab – Kolkata to Digha by car is the fastest option to reach the destination. Kolkata to Digha distance of 190 km must be covered taking around 2 and a half hours.

Digha – A Seaside Paradise

Attached to the Indian state of West Bengal is a famous seaside resort called Digha. The pristine beach covering a distance of 7 km is the home to a number of beautiful tourist spots, very close to the highway connecting Kolkata and Howrah. Substantiated by historical citations, the emergence of this city dates back to 1780 when this place was christened as the “Brighton of the East” by Warren Hasting which gradually transformed into a beach resort.

Things to do

The beautiful locale of Digha attracts tourists to pay a visit to the Marine Aquarium and Research Centre, housing a number of huge marine tanks as part of a noble move to inculcate awareness about marine biodiversity. A temple of Lord Shiva located at Chandaneswar; bordering the states of Bengal and Orissa is the most frequented place of worship. These are the popular spots for sightseeing in Digha.

Accommodation

A couple of mid-range hotels open their doors to tourists along with some budget hotels including Hotel Aditya International and Palm Resort. The most affordable hotels in Digha are the Hotel Sonar Bangla and Larica Holiday Inn, offering basic facilities to patrons.
