Why to visit A Tram Ride

The best feature is that you can climb on and off the tram anyplace you see it but you first need to locate it. The Maidan in front of the Victoria Memorial is the ideal place to see these.
With stops at Park Circus, Sealdah Railway Station, and Howrah, the tram travels around the city. Trams are available from 4 in the morning until 11 at night.
