Consisting of a bazillion tiny shops, stray stalls, roadside setups, Fancy Bazaar is sure to lure you with its labyrinthian alleys and its throwaway prices. A chaotic yet charming amalgamation of the disarrayed shopkeepers, the hustling shoppers along with the aroma of the local street food, the market is a shopping hub for all the compulsive shoppers out there.

This shoppers’ paradise is the go-to place for anything and everything ranging from designer clothes to boots to jewellery, stationery, accessories, artefacts and even furniture, and all of it in the really reasonable wholesale prices. The market is famous for housing some famous Assam Silk shops, garment shops, not to forget, sweets shops and little coops for memorable knick knacks and takeaways. The delicious eateries lined at the side will help you refresh and rejuvenate with lip-smacking local snacks.
