The hub of Shillong

Police Bazaar is the hub of Shillong where you can find all the tourists flocking in during the evening. It has various roadside stalls that pop up in the evening and cater to the varying needs of the tourists. A good place to visit and spend the evening with family and friends. I enjoyed the pop-up food stalls there which serves some of the local cuisines.

The Life of the City

The Police Bazaar comes alive every evening and I cannot explain how thrilling the experience is. It is situated in the heart of Shillong and anyone who loves street-markets must visit it without fail. The winding, interconnected streets can throw up some unexpected bargains at you. Especially for girls looking to buy the latest in fashion, this is where you should be. Also the perfect place to get a taste of the best local cuisine, especially hot steaming momos.

Good shopping site

There are many options to buy in this market, full of diversities, you can bargain, many clothes, dress materials and electronics shops, you can try tribal food being sold around, if you are hungry and looking for north indian roti and sabzi, you will have to work hard to find one to dine in. The place is always crowdy, it can be reached by maruti 800 black yellow taxis which operate in Shillong.

Just like the normal market

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

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

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

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.
