Extremely Friendly people, very rich in culture!
Disturbed because of insurgency
In a nutshell
The city of Guwahati is connected with most of the Indian city and internationally with Bangkok. The Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport is one of the most modern airport of India as it was built recently after modernisation. It has very efficient luggage handling system and the airport is very efficient.
There are about 12 flights operating from Kolkata only in a day! Besides, it is also connected with Delhi, North East, Bombay, Ahmedabad etc. Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport is getting a facelift, to make it better equipped to handle increased air traffic. The upgrade is slated for completion by the end of 2010. The overhaul will include both cosmetic and operational changes. The modern airport will include air link corridors, aero bridges and escalators. Work is also on to improve the quality of the taxiways and widening the shoulders of the tarmac with a view to handle increased air traffic, in the future.
A380 ready runway and Jetways in the terminal has also been planned. Once ready, the Guwahati International Airport can be opened to larger-sized international carriers. Cyber cafes, jewellery shops, mobile charging booths, and better quality seats in the lounge have also been included to make the airport truly international. The Airport Authority of India is aiming to covert the Guwahati Airport into a major international airport of India, which will mainly connect the country with Southeast Asia.

Assam has a long history of violent separatist movements and bombs in public places. The security is non-existent. Last year after a major bombing in the main square everyone just jammed their motorbike as per usual at the entrances to major buildings and malls. Don't go near a clot of parked motorbikes. Don't get in the center of large crowd.
