I am a frequent traveler between Darjeeling and Calcutta as I am the resident of City of joy, but my workplace is Queen of the hill! Always I use railways for smooth and fast journey but some time I try for bus-routes too. For the same, I booked an online ticket to board a Royal Cruiser bus, which is being operated from Siliguri to Kolkata on daily basis.

By last 16-03-2016, I reached at Gupta Travels at Siliguri and boarded at Royal Cruiser A. C bus. It left source at 7:10 pm instead of 7 pm. No. Of my seat was 1 just behind of the Pilot.

Condition of the bus was good as properly maintained. Cooling, lighting, behavior of staffs, services etc. Were good as expectations. They provided Britannia Bourbon biscuits and Packed Drinking Water after some time and movie was started on the screen.

For 1st. Span, the bus was delayed for 30 minutes in Dalkhola and Kishangunj due to huge traffic jam. At Dinajpur we took our dinner and again the bus started its journey for Calcutta.

At 3:30 am of 17/03/2016, the bus stopped just after Farakka Barrage due to huge traffic jam. Police is totally failed to control the same. NH-34 is just like a mismanaged over-crowded game-field with clouds and mud. Many trucks are break-down but there is no guardian to check it.

We were helplessly stopped till 8 am without any move. After arrival of some BSF Jawans, we became free from the nasty jam and our bus started to run.

Atlast, we reached at Esplanade bus stop by 16:30 hrs. Instead of 6:30 am.

A bitter experience for those, who use NH-34 under pressure now a days.

The train Journey was good, but not very good, as the train stops in many areas without a station nearby. The train was very late. Though the co-passengers were good, but the hawkers were very much disturbing and the beggars were disturbing too. They made the journey miserable for me. But overall it was good, as when the trains ran, through the middle of the jungles, and green Bengal, it was quite a good feel.

We travelled by AC three tier and it was quite clean and peaceful. Moreover the train was sharp on time and takes only 10 hours compared to other which take 12 hours for the same. This train has clean and hygienic toilets and the people are all into themselves and donít annoy or disturb you in any ways.

An average journey with SPICE. Being a low cost airlines they have provided an average service. As per my experience INDIGO and JET are far better that SPICE.

I booked via net. Paid extra amount for window seat. But during check-in the SPICE staff at Airport told no window seat are available as all are given to other passenger. They I showed them the amount I have paid in my web print out ticket. And after some conversation they had given me a 1st row window seat. On board I found Air hostage having no smile on their face and I think they are new.

Overall average service.

The train starts on exact time. On this train I travelled so many times but I always noticed that this train always runs on time. You never fell tiredness like other train. I don't know whether it have better hydraulic or same but you don't feel the tiredness which occurred during travelling by train.

Luckily I got a side lower seat and enjoyed the window view. I enjoyed so many river, temple, of course green view.
It is better to carry food from home. You can eat food from Bolpur, Rampurhat, Pakur. Never buy any food from Bardhaman, this station food not only toxic but also very bad to taste and smell.
