Cocktail of old and new generation at one place.

This is the place in India where we find everything, although it is a very populated city and there is a big tension of jams on road and there is only one way drive so to reach just opposite side by vehicle you have to drive 3 km and Kolkata people are so genuine and true by heart. I liked the food (misti dahi, rasogula, bananas), tram train, puller rickshaws, Grand Oberia hotel, Science city, Victoria memorial, Bellur ****, Dakshineshware temple, Hawara bridge, Botanical garden, Park street, New market, Vardhaman market, Circle road, Maa bridge, Mithai wali gali, other roads and infrastructure of buildings made in old style, one must carry umbrella there for shade from sun and for unexpected rain.

The Hub of the City

Park Street is the hub of Kolkata and is a major crowd puller. It has many restaurants on either side of the street and also a few discotheques. The best part of this place is the crowd that is seen here throughout the day.I had visited this place during Chritsmas and was blown away by the mesmerizing decoration and the crowds that had come to celebrate the festival. A must visit place for any traveller visiting the city.Do ensure to have a amazing breakfast at Flury's.

Lively environment with mesmerizing lighting

It was very nice to visit park street and children also enjoyed it so much that we had to visit the same twice in two days. Environment was lively and attractive lighting. The only thing which can be improved is parking facility and pure vegetarian food joints and washroom facility. Overall, I would like to revisit the place.

Park street is one of the porsche areas of Kolkata one can hangout with anyone whatever you spend here is worth it and no one can regret. The area beautiful throughout the year but not during the christmas and new year eve when it is fully decorated one just need his wallet, a good camera and a mode of transport

Enjoy your day and Night

As the Christmas and New Year is round the corner the best place to feel the warmth of Kolkata and Kolkatans is one and only Park street. Whether it is morning, day or night one can always find something to do. One of the best breakfast joint in Eastern India and may be even in our country. Listen and dance to music and feel the merriment all around. Children, youngsters to senior citizens all will be enjoying to maximum. Walk down the street with full of lights and grab the best foods from a large number of eating places. Best time is Christmas and New Year's EVE. Bit crowded but what the heck make new friends and just forget everything else.

Park Street:The heart of Nightlife.

All renowned nightclubs are situated here. Grab a beer and chill down for a moment, let the body dance with lovely music should try Roxy. Books lovers can go upstairs of Oxford and sit with coffee and couple of books can really give a mind fresh life. All over the park street area is very happening place.

My review of Park Street

The best time to visit is in winters, as the climate is mild. The place comes with a colonial old India charm. It is definitely one of India's heritage streets. Lot of budget hotels to stay in. Range of affordable places can be found in makenytrip. The food at restaurants comes with modern charms. However, Indian cushine of the old order are also available. Good place to spend for a week.
