I was not a fan of going to Digha (which is most people’s weekend destination here in Kolkata) because I have been there once. Finally we decided Tajpur which is very near to Digha but not Digha.
Team WebSpades wanted to have a weekend tour for long time and after few months of discussion (literally) we could come to a date where we could spend a weekend together. It was 16th March 2013.

There is very little information available on Internet about Tajpur but I saw we have Paragliding and water scooters but you need to be very lucky to have them on the beach. On top of that Tajpur does not have the train option and so to reach Tajpur, you have to opt for either multiple transport or opt for a car. We opted a car.
After a 4 hours long drive, we settled into our Mouchak Resorts hotel where we had booking done in advance. There were some weird rules in this hotel.
- Check out time is 10AM in the morning and I am not sure why. Normally it is 11 AM i.e. one hour for cleaning staff to get things sorted for next person who may check in at 12 Noon.
- You cannot have your food ordered in the hotel in your room and have to visit restaurant for having your food. I could not agree on this point and after some argument manage to convince the staff that it is impossible for me to have food in hot when I have my AC room.
One thing to note about hotels in Tajpur is they have Drivers Dormitory option and so your driver can be accommodated easily.
Rest was a great weekend and here are some snaps for you to enjoy.
