Located not far from M. G. Road, the Development Area in Gangtok does not see quite a number of tourists, which is why it has a slightly smaller share of hotels. Regardless of this, these hotels are well equipped to meet the different needs of business and leisure travellers. Travelling in this area is rather easy as the norm includes taking a taxi around the place. Most taxis are shared so travel is more affordable and they are easy to find as well. Development Area is a mere 1.5 km from the famous M. G. Marg which makes it easy for visitors to find their way to the main hub of the city. Development Area, like most of the city is clean and well cared for, making it a decent place to stay at if you are in the city. Unlike the rest of the city, Development Area is a rather subdued place, mainly because it does not offer visitors and tourists a lot of entertainment.
