Most of the tea gardens of Assam have golf courses attached to them. All of them are 9 hole golf courses except for Digboi which is an eighteen hole course.
The food of the north-eastern states differs quite a bit from the typical spicy and rich Indian food. These dishes are flavoured with herbs which are indigenous to the region and rice is a staple food.
Assamese food is deliciously mild and finely pH-balanced using a unique banana-alkaline extract called khar.
