"Just like the normal market" new review

  • 3.5/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
However it is the central point of Shillong, but it is the usual market where everything is available from clothes to food to transportation. Most of the markets are open till 8 pm but some shops are open till 9 pm also.. Crowded place like any other markets, can also find some indigenous things.

"Centrally located Bazaar and best to visit around 5 PM"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 25, 2016
It is centrally located and the hub for all the shop-keepers. Best time to visit the place is around 5 PM. Please remember the place gets vacant by 08:30 PM. Hence you need to do all shopping etc within that time and if you want to have food nearby then it is advisable to leave Police Bazaar by 07-07:30 PM.

"Awesome place to shop"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jan 30, 2016
This is an awesome place with all the hustle and bustle. Lots and lots of shops I swear, you get local stuff as well as Chinese goods there. If you want to take a flight home, not to worry these special bags are available there which you can use as temporary check in luggage just in case you over shop.

"Awesome things at one place"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 24, 2015
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 Dec 13, 2015
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 Nov 29, 2015
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.

"Very crowded market place"

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 Nov 17, 2015
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.
