North East offers beauty in packages for tourist. You choose a destination and it offers you the serene beauty, pleasant weather, good and healthy food and peace of mind, which is what defines North East.
My work took me to Guwahati and I decided to visit Shillong at least once. Though the schedule was hectic, I still managed a day and explored Shillong on my way.
I took a shared taxi from Guwahati to Shillong, which cost me around Rs. 250. The communication from Guwahati to Shillong is very smooth as you have many options, such as cab, bus, taxi, sumo on sharing bases, which is quite affordable. The sharing taxi took almost four hours, including a tea break in between, to reach the destination.
I reached Shillong at 10 in the morning. All the vehicles will drop you at Police Bazar bus stand where you will find everything you need—hotels, hostels, restaurants and the unique market in evenings.
Since I started very early from Guwahati I had my breakfast in Shillong at Police Bazar area. You will find food according to your taste, one just needs to look properly or else you can try whatever Shillong is offering you.
Now, the next thing I did was made a list of places, I wanted to see in Shillong. I did not include museums in my list, as I wanted to spend more time with the nature. I hired a taxi for the entire day in just Rs. 1000 which made my trip, of course, very cheap and adventurous. I always believe in spending time at one place to experience the best of it.
