That said, the city centre is relatively laid- back and traffic-free. If you are here on a Wednesday don't miass Biratnagar's haat Bazaar, held in a field east of town.
Direct buses to Biratnagar are available from Kathmandu and other major cities. There are several flights a day to Biratnagar. The Airport is 4 km north of town.
Biratnagar is facilitated with a number of hotels for average to luxurious accommodations.
