Shillong is a beautiful hill station as well as the capital city of Meghalaya state in northeast India. British colonisers called it Scotland of the East because the gentle, rolling hills around the city reminded them of Scotland. It is a cosmopolitan, multicultural city although the indigenous people, the Khasi, have cultural and linguistic affinity with the Cambodians, Vietnamese and other ethnic communities of Southeast Asia. Apart from being an educational hub, it is also well known for the musical creativity of its residents, prompting some to call it the Rock Capital of India.

Know the English language, dress well. Actually the weather here is good, nice place, so many nice waterfalls, hills, stream, good people, tasty food, fashionable city. Most of people here can speak English, Hindi and local language. Shillong is the rock city of india, Scotland of the east.
