Living in Guwahati

With rolling vistas, beautiful views and a temperate climate, it is hardly surprising that Guwahati is also known as the “The City of Eastern Light”. But to really make the most of the rich cultural history that the Indian Assam region has to offer, using the InterNations platform could really help. Whether you want to explore the Kamakhya Temple, the city’s ancient ruins or take part in the many religious festivals such as the three Bihu festivals which are celebrated throughout the Assam region, you can exchange and receive information and insider tips from other expats living in Guwahati or the surrounding area via InterNations. Whether you are exploring the ancient Buddhist temples (including the impressive Kamakhya Temple) or venturing into Assam’s breathtaking Kaziranga National Park to see the Indian Rhinoceros and other stunning wildlife in its natural habitat, you will no doubt find something that appeals to you when living in Guwahati.

Moving to Guwahati

When moving to Guwahati, you can utilize the InterNations platform to organize a meeting with other expats in the area, to make the most of what Guwahati has to offer expatriates and locals alike. Guwahati is home to the Nehru Sports Stadium, with a 30,000 seat capacity, which hosts soccer, and of course, cricket matches. The city is also home to an older sports complex, the Kanaklata Stadium and numerous smaller sports stadiums nearby, hosting a range of different sports, including cricket, soccer and hockey. In addition, the new 60,000 capacity Barsapara Cricket Stadium was completed in 2013. If that’s not for you, then with the Brahmaputra River nearby, there is a selection of water and adventure sports available, which play a prominent part in Guwahati’s leisure activities. Whatever leisure activity you prefer, this Indian city has much to offer expats moving to Guwahati.

Working in Guwahati

Guwahati offers excellent working environments for international expatriates in India. Since it lacks the relatively dense population of larger cities such as Delhi or Mumbai, the result is an excellent standard of living with all the modern conveniences you could hope for working as an expat in Guwahati. The airport is just 20 km west of the city center, the city has excellent rail links and it is also extremely well connected to adjoining regions via road, with bus links available if you don’t drive. It has an excellent educational system (including the Gauhati University, founded in 1948) and a range of modern apartments, shopping malls, and excellent socializing opportunities, meaning there really is something for everybody. If you want more information on adjusting to life as an expatriate living overseas, have a look at our Expat Magazine, which provides general information on topics such as insurance, finance, culture shock and other information relevant to living and working abroad.
