Hi forum members, a group of us will be making a trip to Puri from Kolkata during the Durga Pooja days. Before the trip begins there are a few queries which I would like answered, so I can decide the trip accordingly and everything goes to plan. - What bus service is good for the Kolkata to Puri trip? - Where are the ideal and cheap accommodations to stay in Puri? - Which beach should be visited in Puri? - How far is Chilka Lake from Puri? Thanks Amit.
