Introducing Shillong

Until 1972, irreverent Shillong was the capital of British-created Assam. Since becoming the state capital of Meghalaya, it has rapidly developed into a typical modern Indian town, but still retains some its colonial-era charm in certain pockets. Overhauled cars are all the rage here – take a ride in one of Shillong's many taxis, and you'll know.
