Posted: 27 Mar 2010. Updated: 03 Jun 2020

I really like what I’ve seen of Kolkata so far.

The tea boys of Sutter Street make a mean chai tea served in a rustic clay cup

The Marble Palace, Victoria Memorial, Indian Museum, Metro System and Planetarium provide some amusement for "attraction seekers" and give a glimpse into Kolkatas' grim colonial past.

I preferred getting lost around the city and eating at one of the many divine food stalls. Same goes for the lassies and tea shops.

If you're feeling adventurous and in need of a cheap place to stay, head to the Paragon Hotel on Sutter Street

Darjeeling, then westward we go.

I was excited to arrive back in Kuala Lumpur. It’s a city with some amazing culinary delights and diversity.
