Fancy Bazar, Guwahati

(130+ reviews on the web)
Flea Market
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). Plan your Fancy Bazar visit and explore what else you can see and do in Guwahati using our Guwahati tour planner.
