"Simply all in one place"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 1 month 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

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.

"Always a crowded place"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted Sep 8, 2014
A place full of rush all time. A place where you will find all hotels, shops, food destinations, and supermalls. Cabs for various locations are available at police bazaar and so there is heavy, rush. Church and lake for relaxation is also there. People can spend quality time here.

"Gives the feel of unsafe"

  • 1.00/7
  • Posted Sep 2, 2014
Haphazard way of roadside shops. Police, military personnel with guns gives a feeling that it is unsafe place and any time an untoward incident like terrorist attack, bomb blast may take place. Road construction is unsafe with cars being driven on them, which is public hazard. Road is going up and down with small sellers on either side creating a scene of a chaotic market.
