It is the main and center place of Shillong. If you go to Shillong then you will get all kinds of hotels, Lodge, cabs, taxi and travel agency there. There have a large market.

Reasonable place to shop in the city center. But everything closed down by 9pm! There are lots of shops with a wide range variety! Cafe's and pubs are there as well. It is crowded. Walking is the best option!

Police Bazar is just another market place with not much to buy and view. Heavily crowded and not maintained. Being the center point of shillong most hotels parkings and restaurants are in this area but nothing to admire otherwise.

This place is for 100 % shopping. Best time to come at evening before eight as it stats to close then. Walk around, shop things have hot moms and enjoy with the crowd.

I would not suggest anyone to spend time here. There is nothing local except for few sweaters as everything else comes from all over India. Dirty, untidy place as most of it is covered with local taxis.Do not plan to visit on your trip.
