Siliguri and local market

Siliguri is not exactly a tourist place, more a one night stop en-route to the Himalayan regions. We stayed at one of the three-star hotels on the outskirt of the town. As do all the other 'best people'.

 

We have found the 3* places to be quite adequate, clean and with all the main facilities but some times the service can seem a bit amateurish so it pays to stay fairly relaxed.  We took a short walk down the road to see what was here, the main thing was some small market stalls, so we stocked up on some snacks for our journey the next day.

 

 

Some things like these dried fish we decided to pass on.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We also decided not to try the local tea hut.
