Our Experience Of Travel Between Puri And Kolkata
Puri to Kolkata or vice versa trip can be done in many number of ways including train. Price, of course, varies with comfort, travel time and mode of the travel. The price can be as cheap as $5 for bus or non air conditioned train to $30 for flight.
10 hour Bus journey between Puri to Kolkata is not for faint hearted person. The road between two cities are nothing compared to western highways that international customers expect. There are few bus companies offering scheduled ride between Kolkata and Puri.
Orissa State Road Transport Corporation provides air-conditioned bus for Rs 600 (US$9). The ride feels more like a truck than luxury bus.
Shyamoli and Dolphins Tours both offer Volvo bus with sleeping or seat options. The prices and service quality are generally same. Expect to pay $10.
Most service operators will pick up from Puri main bus station and drop you in Esplanade bus stand near Eden gardens.
