Guwahati

Gateway to Northeast India

A place to engage with the culture of the northeast, Guwahati represents the largest city in the region, and acts as a stepping stone for wider explorations. Much of the focus in the downtown centers on the slow-flowing river, with a number of the main attractions in Guwahati found along its banks, including ancient temples, city parks, and shopping malls. Tea shops and handicraft stalls offer a taste of the rustic old villages and plantations in the state's rural areas. Guwahati is in Kamrup Metropolitan District.

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.
