Silguri is the main commercial city of North Bengal and its importance comes from its strategic location near international and state borders. It is situated on the banks of the river Mahananda. Spread around the foothills of the eastern Himalayas, the town is an important transportation, trading and educational center. The Kanchanjungha Stadium is one of the important stadiums in West Bengal. Siliguri is a convenient base for travel to the various Himalayan hill stations like Darjeeling, Kalimpong and Gangtok. Several hotels have come up in the city to cater to both the business and tourist needs. Although it's mainly a commercial and business town, Siliguri has quite a few industries. The Bagdogra airport (13 kms from Siliguri) offers connections to Calcutta, Delhi and Guwahati.

The main railway station is at New Jalpaiguri (NJP - 4 kms from city) which is connected by express trains to all major Indian cities. The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway is world famous and connects NJP and Darjeeling. This railway has been declared a UNESCO heritage site. Bus services to the district towns and neighboring states are also available from Siliguri.
