Hi,

I have already planned for a 3 day trip to Jagannath temple, Puri and the surrounding areas. I want some suggestions about places to visit around Puri apart from Konark, Chilka, Bhubaneshwar and Cuttack.

I also would welcome some information relating to accomodation (cheap and neat would suffice). Any contact details would be great.

 

I am ready to travel overnight. I will be reaching Khurda rd junction on a Friday morning at 5:30 and my return train starts from Bhubaneshwar on Sunday night at 9.

 

Thanks,

Ranga

You should spend 2 nights in Puri and 1 night at Chilika lake. while in Puri, you can make a day trip to Konark temple. If you want to include Cuttack then you need to do Chilika lake as a day tour from Puri.

Most of the budget accommodation in puri lies at CT road.

Thanks for the info Vishnu. On an average how much will it cost to stay in your version of a 'budget accommodation'?

 

I will need accommodation for 2 nights only (refer my plan).

 

I was wondering if I could save money by traveling overnight and saving on accommodation. Will that work out? Are there any places that I can visit traveling overnight and coming back the next day? That way I can spend two days in and around Puri and one day in another place.

 

Thanks,

Ranga

In Puri, you can get something as cheap as 400 INR per night. Puri is not very cheap so finding something less than 300-400 INR is bit challenge. Puri to Konark and Puri to Chilika are day tours. You will not find transport during night. these are best covered as day tours. Puri to Bhubneshwar onwards is connected even in night so you can do that part as overnight trips.

400 is too less for a nice room. you can get a nice room in the range of 800-1000...

Hi Sushil,

There is no need of one tour operator for both locations. I would suggest you to hire a taxi from Bhubneshwar to Puri and come back and then take train to Kolkata and hire another tour for Ganga Sagar.
