Hello Friends,
I need suggestions for a one day trip to some place which is quiet and not crowded. Looking for a romantic getaway this Sunday, 5th Fbruary.
Plan to leave by 5 in the morning and come back by 7-8 in the evening. Will be travelling by car.
Friends need your suggestions ASAP..
Thanks in advance

I had checked out that post. I have been to all those places suggested in that post.

Could you suggest something different?

Else I would probably do Frazergunj-Henry Islands..

Could you list all the places that you have been to so that it could be easier for members to suggest some place apart from the ones mentioned in the link?

Otherwise if some member gives a name you will say already been there.

That is a very good weekend gateway, but for a day trip the amount of journey can be a little too much. Specially considering the factor that you can get stuck while crossing Hatania-Doania river for over an hour or so.

Sorry Aarosh if I sounded rude in my previous post

BEACHES:

digha
mandarmoni
tajpur
bakkhali
frazergunj
sankarpur

GANGES:

raichak
diamond harbour

taki
gadiara

Not been to the sunderban side..
Also any hills that could be visited within a day trip?
I mean would it be possible to go to ghatshila and come back the same day?

Most of the places you have mentioned are too far (in terms of journey time) to be suitable for a day trip including all the hill stations.

You can opt for Gadiara or Taki. Or for Sundarban side you can consider Piyali Island.

It is not about sounding rude Enigma. It is about giving information in order to help you.

Have you heard about Garh Panchakot? It could be an option for a day trip. For more information read Deul, a short tour from Kolkata.

Ghatshila, I think will be too far off for a day trip. It would be ideal if you decide a week end there.

Hi..

Ghatsila is around 250 km and after Kharagpur the road is dangerous, moreover you can stuck up in heavy traffic jam at the border, so try to avoid Ghatsila for a single day journey.

Thanks for the suggestion, personally i would like to try the sunderbans.

I have heard about raidighi, kalash islands, piyali islands and sajnekhali.

Could you give me a bit more details of these places?

Garh panchkot I believe is a little more than 200kms from kolkata..

This thread can be helpful for your purpose:Trip Report of Piyali Island

Garh Panchakot is a very good option for weekend gateway, but again a bit too much for a day trip.

What about Jhargram ? No longer problematic, at least not for a day journey.
