Watch Calcutta wake up Magic hour tour
Every morning, before the sun is up; the light sensitive Neon street lamps of Calcutta go off just when there is enough light. We call this time the Magic hour, and what better way than to see a city when it's waking up. We hop on to the first tram of the day as the city enters the enchanting Magic Hour. The trams, which used to be the king of the roads, still rule the streets during the magic hour. Meandering through the sleepy 300 year locality of Calcutta in full throttle ,the next few hours are spent visiting some local hidden spots around the oldest part of the city. Before the bustling giant city wakes up we’d have used all the iconic transport modes of Calcutta, enjoyed sights that are just ignored in plain sight, had breakfast in century old hidden spot, gossiped about Bengalis and Calcutta in general, learnt the meaning to “Adda” and a lot more about being a Bong. The “unguided tour” as we call starts with Chai (tea) in a bhaad (earthen cups) and finishes with traditional Bengali breakfast, the best sweets of Calcutta and finding our way through the winding streets back, to the place where we began (the tour we mean).Calcutta capsule for more reviews.
