MG Road, Gangtok, Sikkim at night.
For a visitor like me from Nagaland, it was a pleasure to see shops, restaurant and bars open quite late at night. Even at night, the street is quite busy. Another great experience for a visitor like me from Nagaland, where liquor is banned for whatever reason, is that I get to eat and sip my favorite malt without a feeling of quilt even during the day (laughs).
