Holidays to North East India and Kolkata with If Only

More of an experience than a destination, Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) was the British capital in India for years, with a rich cultural heritage. Millionaires and beggars alike populate this heaving metropolis, a gateway to North East India. Darjeeling is synonymous with tea, and the emerald plantations at the foot of the Eastern Himalayas offers a welcome refuge from the heat and chaos of India's cities.
