Guwahati is not much of a after dark city. The shutters of the shops are closed and the traffic diminishes drastically after 11pm unless there is a festival happening in the town.

The pumping contemporary music and the an awesome ambiance of these places offers a nice sun downer show.These bars and pubs definitely throbs the nightlife at Guwahati, however, it is advisable to be slightly careful after dark in Guwahati.

The cost of all travel depends on the mode of transport taken to visit the city, and also on the type of accommodation. Guwahati can be visited by air or by train or by road. The approximate cost of the journey is nearly 2,000 rupees if train journey is preferred. Journey by bus is cheaper. Though the bus route connecting Guwahati with other cities costs less, it takes a long time for many tourists to reach Guwahati, which can be a strong deterrent for the foreigners.
