If you are planning a trip to Assam for the first time you do need some tips and guidelines to get around avoiding any troubles. Even though the city is thriving to be a major metropolis people here are a bit too culturally inclined. Also, the infrastructure is not top notch everywhere, roads tend to get flooded in monsoon. Moreover, the ever clinging idea of not being a safe tourist place is one of another setbacks of this city like any other city in India has its own. So, it is best to keep few tips in mind before landing in the city:


  • Once you are in Assam, do try out the local cuisine. Even though it is not very famous all across India because of its offbeat style, it is worth trying once you are here.

  • Humidity rarely leaves the atmosphere of Guwahati. And humidity gives rise to mosquitoes. Do keep a mosquito repellent handy with you.

  • If you are planning to visit the city in peak winters, do make sure to carry warm clothes because it can get quite chilly.  


  • Never plan a trip to Guwahati during the rainy season that starts from mid-June to mid-September. The major areas in the city witnesses heavy floods giving way to chaos and confusion on the streets and toiling traffic jams.

  • Even if you see the number of wine shops selling alcohol till late freely, getting drunk on the streets is not acceptable.

  • The roads in the outskirts of the city has pretty steep slopes. So, if you are planning to drive on your own be sure of your driving skills or its better to hire a cab.

So, stay safe and spend a happy time in this glorious city called Guwahati.
