Fancy Bazar, Guwahati

3.4
The shopping hub of the city, Fancy Bazar is a heaven for tourists hunting for good deals on souvenirs. Overcrowded as any Indian street market, the bazaar features narrow streets lined with specialized stores selling everything from food to electronics. If you want to get some signature ethnic showpieces, look for jaapi (a traditional, ornate bamboo hat with a wide rim) or gamosa (a rectangular towel with woven motifs).

Where to stay in Guwahati

Most accommodations in Guwahati lie close to the main train station in the Paltan Bazaar district. Here, you'll find some particularly refined options next to the river in the Fancy Bazaar area, offering extensive views of the water and access to some of the main sights in town. Look to the mazy side streets of the Paltan Bazaar district for some budget-friendly guesthouses and hostels. The main Guwahati-Shillong Road has a good choice of hotels, with some budget and luxury options available. The road offers a degree of convenience for those who want to get out and explore the hillier areas of the region.
