Meghalaya's capital Shillong –was in the past referred to as ' Scotland of the East' due its remarkable resemblance to the British province's climate and vegetation. This pulsating hill town presents quite a contrast to the easy going tribal village lifestyle. Hep and happening with its fancy shops and eateries, and strains of the latest in rock and rap wafting out of posh restaurants, and a miscellany of local bands, Shillong offers you a wild late night partying kind of holiday or a more carefree, stress eliminating one in a laid back setting.

Meghalaya has an excellent infrastructure in terms of roads, hotel accommodation, and easy accessibility to Guwahati the well connected gateway of the north east, in neighbouring Assam.
