"Awesome things at one place"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Every traveller should visit this place as it is located with everything needed such as shopping malls, cinema hall, hotels, restaurant and taxis. I advice travellers to carry extra clothing on them. While taking a taxi please enquire for fare as some of taxi drivers demand more money than normal.

"Simply A Bazar"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
This is main Bazar not of Shillong but of entire Meghalaya. From here you can buy everything. The bazar is spread on main road having shops on both side. We purchased some woolen wears from here. Pass time but be aware don't stay up to late night. It is dangerous to wander at night in entire Shillong.

"The heart of the city"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
If you want to experience the pulse of Shillong, Police Bazar is the place for you. Most hotels and restaurants of Shillong are here in this market. The best time to visit this market is in the afternoon, shop from the local shops, try the delicacies in the restaurants and take a walk through the staired alleys or the hilly roads while watching local people and tourists alike.

Visited the place at the peak of evening rush hour in tourist season. Huge huge crowd and not very novel items. The winter clothing was good but other items had very little choices.

"Happy shopping experience"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Nice place to shop anything from groceries to many more. It's a traffic point and the bazaar surrounds it into many small bylanes. Easy to shop by walking with good malls and attractions.

"Nice place to visit"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Sep 21, 2015
Police Bazar is the heart of Shillong. It is situated near Center Point. This is also main market of Shillong. Local fruits are very tasty. Some of them are only produced here. We spent here more than three hours. Climate is so good. Nice place to visit.

"Crowded place but looks very nice in Winters"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted Aug 30, 2015
Main marketplace of Shillong. Vast and always crowded. But looks very nice in Winters. The hawkers and vegetable sellers are in abundance. The best part about this place is we get everything here. It is like a hub for all goods and services in the mighty hill station of Shillong. My hotel was not to far from Police Bazaar. Also that the travel taxis all are available here.

"Central market of Shillong"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Aug 4, 2015
It is a busy central market of Shillong. It's always crowded. Actually, there you can feel the hustle and bustle of the city. There is a mall at the chowk where you can find KfC and Subway.

"Good Bazar"

  • Posted Jul 28, 2015
Nice and polite people. Small but attractive market. But shortage of good restaurant. Sitting space is also the main problem where we can sit with our family or group.
