The main city of Assam, Guwahati dons quite a few amazing shopping malls and markets in Ganeshguri, GS Road, Fancy Bazaar, Pan Bazaar, Paltan Bazaar and GNB Road. These markets offer to each visitor a wide range of gift products – cane and bamboo items, local arte-facts, handloom products, bell metal and brass utensils, tea etc. But what tops the list is the silk products of Assam.
