"The main market in Shillong" new review

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Bustling with energy and noisy, this market should be explored when in Shillong. Go to Gloria's complex for some momos and you could also pick up some really good boots at dirt cheap prices.

"Bustling centre of town" new review

  • 4.50/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Lots of hotels in the vicinity. Alive and bustling well into the evening, which is rare for a hill station. You can get for any of the major tourist destinations here, although budget travellers might want to go to Bada Bazaar and take shared cabs from there.

"Simply all in one place"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Nice place crowded with tourists. One can find all things from traditional to modern and cuisines from Chinese to North Indian and many more. It is in fact the main market so the connectivity to and fro from this place is easy to find. Most of the hotels are located here and I suggest you to book one in this area.

I would suggest one to try out some local type of lemons(not specifically I forgot the name but can be called 'TENGA'). Also try Strawberry local fruits and local cuisines of Meghalaya. One can find many cabs for sightseeing so this place is an advantage.

"Shopping time, cheaper price"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted Nov 2, 2014
If you do have a lot of things to be purchased best place to visit in Shillong is perhaps this place. You would find all kind of imported good here which would be probably much cheaper than we find in the metros even.

"Very congested market, difficult to walk in the evening"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted Sep 27, 2014
Very congested market, difficult to walk in the evening. Market price is reasonable. I bought one pair of nice looking shoes from foot path seller. We have had our dinner in a renowned hotel at police bazar.

"Noisy bazar, average visit"

  • 3.00/7
  • Posted Sep 22, 2014
Very crowded, noisy and dirty does not have the charm that I had read about like any other town bazaar. The shops are mainly full of branded stuff that you can get anywhere. Very little local product could be seen. Even the ethnic food places seemed half closed.

"Crowded and rain"

  • 3.50/7
  • Posted Sep 19, 2014
It was crowded but found some good shops for shopping. Some places were dirty. Donít forget to carry an umbrella because shillong gets rain without warning. Conveyance is easy to get but often you are caught in the traffic.
