Kolkata, City of Joy. Are you planning a trip to Kolkata soon?
Kolkata or previously known as Calcutta, is the fourth largest city in India. Visitors are charmed by the city’s British Raj-era and historical buildings and cultural diversity but they may feel intimidated to explore places of interests by themselves because of the sheer size of the city. Not to mention the chaos and cacophony of noises that one typically associates with India.
Fear not, for I have a Kolkata-travel guide for you, a guide that can help you navigate your way around the streets of Kolkata easily for FREE.
I’m pleased to partner with GPSmyCity for the third time, and we would like to offer a Free Upgrade on my Kolkata travel articles via GPSmyCity app.
What is GPSmyCity app?
For those who are not familiar with the app, GPSmyCity publishes iOS and Android apps featuring 6,000 self-guided city walks in 750+ cities worldwide. Each walk provides a route map guiding you to famous attractions and interesting sights, allowing you to explore the cities on foot with your GPS-enabled mobile phone or tablet.
The app on your mobile device becomes your personal tour guide, therefore there is no need to join a guided tour as you can explore the city at your own pace at minimal cost.
What are the main features of the app?
- Multiple Walks in Each City: To suit various interests as some travellers enjoy exploring heritage and architecture while others prefer exploring the markets.
- Detailed Walk Route Map: The map indicates a detailed walking route including turn-by-turn walking directions to guide you from one stop to the next.
- GPS-Guided City Walks: You won’t have to worry about getting lost as the map uses GPS to help you navigate to the destination and various stops.
- Read Offline: And the best part of all is that you can work offline. Once the route is downloaded to your mobile device, you can navigate easily without a data plan. This means no international roaming costs will be incurred when travelling abroad. Isn’t that a huge relief?
Did you say that there are GPS-guided travel articles in the app as well?
Yes, that’s right. These travel articles are written by travellers who have visited the sights that you are interested in, giving you tips to find the city’s hidden gems.
You can easily download the articles via the app on to your mobile device for FREE, after which you can read them anytime, anywhere…without data plan or WIFI.
The travel articles have GPS coordinates embedded and a map of the route that the traveller has described in the articles. To convert the downloaded article into a GPS-guided article, you can upgrade for a small fee of only US$1.
