I travelled with my family from Kolkata to Shillong during the puja holidays on October, 2014. We first went to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport from our residence. There we board the IndiGo Airlines and land at Guwahadi Airport.

The flight journey was nice. The air hostesses were courteous. The food was delicious. It took around an hour to reach Guwahati from Kolkata. From there we take a hired jeep to take us to Shillong.

It was a pain-stacking experience during the journey from Guwahati to Shillong due to the congested roads, traffic problems and extreme heat. But other than that, we did not have any problem.

I went to Shillong on a puja vacation with my family on October 2014. I wanted to live in a peaceful atmosphere with relatively average budget. White Orchid Guest House do satisfy those criterias.

The rooms were definitely big (about 220 sq ft) and were pretty clean. Hotel staff were...more »

We are going to Guwahati from Burdwan by Saraighat Express. It is a superfast train which reaches the destination one our late. The service on the train was satisfactory. Toilets were clean. I got upper birth on the train. As there are small number of stations, the journey was smooth. Meals are also available with your order.

I have taken a Spicejet flight for my travel from Kolkata to Guwahati. The flight was on time and the food offered were very good in taste and quality. It was a very short journey flight hence there was not a good scope for offering better services within such a short time.

SpiceJet is a low cost airlines and nothing special about it. It’s easy to reach your destination by flight and nothing phenomenal. No frills or thrills, we just had to pass the time by watching a good movie on your tab laptop or your big screen smartphone’s and if you are hungry eat but at a higher price.

My experience with SpiceJet was always good as ever. Perfect time and always smiling cabin crew. The cabins are always very clean and the walls are always white without any yellowish tint. Very good luggage handling system, which do not create any damage. I dint like the idea of serving drinking water in open paper glasses, it looks very cheap. They should provide small sealed packaged drinking water of reputed brand.
