Coming soon, tourist pick-up and drop points across Kolkata
To ensure seamless movement of tourists across the city, Kolkata is soon going to introduce exclusive ‘tourist pick-up and drop points’. This service will be made available across the city. Tour operators will soon be able to pick or drop off tourists with ease.
Under this new venture, there will be pre-specified pickup-drop points in different strategic locations across Kolkata. At these points, only commercially registered tourist vehicles operated by the Association of Tourism Service Provider of Bengal (ATSP) will be allowed to pick and drop tourists. Also, registered tourist vehicles will be allowed to stop for 5-10 minutes at the respective tourist pick and drop points.
Chittorgarh Fort set to become first fort in India to be illuminated throughout the year
The grand and famous Chittorgarh Fort in Rajasthan is all set to become the first fort in India to remain illuminated throughout the year. The spellbinding fort from the 8th century is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The prime motive behind this decision is to boost the tourism in the region along with offering visitors a different experience.
However, the year round lightning definitely does not mean that the fort will also remain open throughout the night. Vantage points will be made for visitors to view the incredible fort in all its glory. The longest stretch of the project is a 4 km long wall and it will be visible from a 20 km long distance!
