How close-knit is the expat community in this area? How do I get involved with it?
The expatriate population in Kolkata is relatively small and there aren't many expatriate associations here. Probably the best places to meet fellow expatriates are through the local clubs, such as the
Royal Calcutta Golf Club, the Calcutta Swimming Club, the Saturday Club, Calcutta Club and the Indo-American Chambers of Commerce. Another great way to meet people is to get involved with the activities run by your local embassy; you'll soon find yourself invited to a host of other social activities.
For more information or assistance, please check in your local phone book or contact Crown Kolkata.
Beside expat groups, what is the best way to make social connections outside of work?
Joining local clubs or volunteering are excellent ways to meet people and make new friends. And, most of the big hotels celebrate national and international festivals, an ideal meeting place for expats.
