    Kolkata has its own beauty. Narrow minded foreigners like you should stick to New York and Shanghai with big skyscraper and wide roads.

    Christine not sure if it was intentional, but you visited all the market places which usually are crowded. You can't generalize a city's culture visiting only a small part of it. Next time you visit Kolkata (Calcutta) please do a little research and visit places which are not so disturbing. Kolkata (Calcutta) is known as the Cultural Capital of India and trust me there are reasons for it. Nowhere in the world, you would see people of vivid nature and varied caste & culture live in perfect harmony as we do in Kolkata. Visit Belur Math the headquarters of the Ramakrishna Mission. People from all over the world, irrespective of the religion that they believe in, visit this temple to enjoy the tranquillity and serenity of this holy place. Visit Princep Ghat, one of Kolkata's earliest recreational spots and a photographer’s paradise. Resting on the banks of the beautiful river Hooghly, this place is adorned with lush trees and expanse of green lawns. Visit Park Street, the party street or recreation zone of Kolkata with N number of restaurants, hotels, discos, and pubs. Take a sneak peek into the history of this place and know how it became one of the most happening places of British Calcutta. When we say Calcutta is the City of Joy, we mean it. Please refer to the website below and you would find plenty of places that may attract you and make your trip more memorable next time. www.calcuttacaravan.com/

      no D Chowdhary … we like visiting the real Calcutta , the filthy, stinky mega slum. You go and visit all those "beautiful" phony places in Calcutta and make a PAplayer video. If we really want to visit beautiful places we'd go to Vienna, Prague, Stockholm, St. Petersburg etc.

    India is a hugely populated country . And Kolkata is a METROPOLITAN CITY . Every places of Kolkata is very congested and huge crowded. If you go to Tangra you can see there Chinese colony . Most of the Hakka Chinese group live there. You should know that Kolkata was the first colonial capital of India under British bondage. So Kolkata is always populated.

    You haven't gone to the nice places in kolkata.i feel pity for your choices.surf the internet and travel next time..or don't complain..every country or city has beautiful places and not so beautiful places(technically)..i fail to understand why would you choose something which you aren't ready to absorb and complain.anyway burrabazar is a wholesale trade area not a mall.lakhs of people go for work,education and business to kolkata everday..i'll include myself too.i never saw my nails turning black!for god's sake.
