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).

  • its very nice place for shopping. Good quality of products with low price. Very nice place for short time shopping
  • It's overall a good place for window shopping. Although only cheap products are being sold here, still these products are value for money. One should always bargain here.
  • Its the commercial hub of Guwahati city. I love the place because it's a beehive of activity all day long. Shopping is incomplete without a visit to this place. For foodies as well there are restaurants around and some fast food outlets too. This place will continue to retain its charm though the city has several market places coming up in recent years.
  • Oldest market place in Guwahati..as the name suggests, all fancy items available... Leading brands also have presence.. Usually over crowded specially during festive seasons..
  • One of the best place in Guwahati, Assam to do street side shopping. The place not only has clothes, shoes but also eateries, good sweets, household things and almost all other necessary day to day items. Recommended to visit atleast once.

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.
