    Looked like a set up
    I had a different imagery of this village, considering it claims one of the cleanest village in Asia. But to my surprise, they have made it very touristy, full of cafes and homestays, looks made up rather than rustic raw natural village. I can't even claim it as village as everything seemed like a set up. So font go with any expectations per se, enjoy the stroll.

    overhyped location
    Not worth the visit unless you've enough time to kill...... It's just like a commercial community row houses and nothing great.... paying to get access to the village is definitely not worth. Highly disappointed. People are just money minded here everything is overpriced as well

    Good but overrated!
    They claim it is cleanest village of Asia. It is a lie. You can find much cleaner place in Sikkim. It is a blatant lie and they suck your wallet. Rs 200 just to enter the village. Believe me, nothing special awaits you there. Do not waste your money.

Perfect waste of time and money combined included with free body ache. Thankfully there's a Root bridge just few minutes away from this village which is the saving grace. The village has no authenticity all seems well staged and more people end up looking for food in this village rather than looking around the village. Most of the houses are now converted to Homestay to bring in more guests and make fool out of more people. Avoid this place even if your driver forces just to generate more money from you.

Walk around, expect no communication from villagers ...and the visitors toilet has no water...
Obviously not interested in anything but in selling to tourists.

This is a village which doesn't look like a village. I believe after being recognized as Asia's cleanest village, it received a lot of attention from media and administration. That has brought in some modernization with concrete houses, tar roads, wooden fencings etc. A lot of commercialization is also seen with every 3rd house offering homestay.

A village is expected to have its own activities, but in Mawlynnong, one doesn't seem many villagers apart from a few managing some eating outlets and a few others sitting outside their houses. It appears to be a staged performance.

Credit to the villagers for achieving the recognition. Hope the place doesn't lose its charm more than what it may have lost already with its concretization.

It would be good to have information being shared by villagers on what did they do which eventuallyed them to achieving this recgnition.

This is the cleanest village in Asia. I believe they are not dependent on anyone and take care of cleanliness by themselves.

There is nothing much to see here, most of the houses have been converted into home stays. There is nothing like a village it's more of a tourist spot.

If a village is paid 100 rupees per person as entry fees, any Village would keep it's premises pristine and clean.

Anyways most of Meghalaya is very clean as it is, so you're not missing much of you don't visit this village.

Since it's next to living root bridge, you can visit the place, as most of the tourist have to have their lunch here itself, there is no other option. Food options are very limited, better to carry your own food.
