    I am from Bangalore and am in training to be a journalist, I plan to go to Sonacgachi for a documentary research and need some help in knowing how I can reach Sonagachi.

    I plan to travel by flight to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport, please guide me how to reach Sonagachi from there?

    Sonagachi is in the North of Kolkata. The distance from Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport to Sonagachi is 15km which should take around 20 minutes in a car.

    You can also reach Sonagachi by the Kolkata metro train. The closest metro station to Sonagachi is Shobhabazar station and Sonagachi is a 3-minute walk from there.

    If you are on the Sealdah metro line then you must get off from Bidhan Nagar station and then take a 5-minute bus journey to Shobhabazar, then again a 3-minute walk to reach Sonagachi.
