InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Calcutta

Hello to all Americans in Calcutta! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Calcutta? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Calcutta which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Calcutta is not called the “Cultural Capital of India” for nothing. The former capital is a bustling city known for its varied cuisine, colonial-era architecture, traditions in art, film, theater, and literature, and much more! With the available buses, trams, river ferries, metro services, and suburban trains, next to taxis, rickshaws, and autorickshaws (autos), navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the more suburban areas such as Salt Lake or New Town, for example, which are up to an hour away from Calcutta’s center.

Although Calcutta has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Calcutta, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
