Kolkatta for Honeymoon :confused: Even kolkattans run away from the city for their honeymoon ;)
It is obvious you do not enjoy Kolkata! I feel sorry for you.
I'm heading to India for my honeymoon in Dec. We're into Delhi with a Raj circle then Varanasi, Kolkata, Sundarbans, Mysore, Kerala...
Man originally really wanted to go to Kolkata (we know a lot of Bangladeshis) and I to Sundarbans. We're now looking and feeling like the one month we have is not enough to squeeze it all in.
Kolkata or cut it? (Perhaps the wrong forum to post in).
If we cut we'd likely add Ranthambore to the Raj circuit.
I am really clueless what does that mean? Does it mean that Kolkata is such a bad place that Kolkata guys ran away from their home city, Kolkata, to celebrate their honeymoon elsewhere? I have past my honeymoon days long back, but I think people tend to visit some unknown exotic place to celebrate their honeymoon absolutely for a different reason and that has nothing to do with the quality of place! The initiator of this thread, sbelleo is coming from NYC to India for a month-long honeymoon trip. Does it imply that the couple is running away from their home city or for that matter, NYC is inferior place than India? I think this kind of value judgement of place, people is very unfortunate and that it is against the spirit of IM.
Really, you live in Kolkata??!! Despite its "harsh climate", "excessive pollution"??!! There must be something in this city which holds you back even in such a horrible condition! That's very interesting!! But Kolkata and beaches...?? does'nt sound very convincing.
The only thing holding me back is that I am student and I have no choice but to wait till I complete graduation. But that's not the point really. There is a difference between someone staying in a certain city to lead daily life and recommending it to others for a vacation. Just because a place is livable doesn't mean its also the best place for a week's vacation.
