This is the Dhaka chapter from Lonely Planet’s Bangladesh guidebook.

Dhaka is not a quiet, retiring place. The city, bursting with nearly 17 million people (most of whom often seem to be stuck in the same traffic jam as you), is a gloriously noisy and chaotic place, bubbling with energy.

  • board a rowboat down at the gritty docks of Sadarghat and cross the manic Buriganga River, the very lifeblood of this enormous city
  • maps
  • see some of Dhaka’s thousands of cycle-rickshaws being made – and buy a piece of rickhshaw art for yourself on Bangshal Rd
  • transport
  • get lost wandering the fascinating, overcrowded alleyways of Old Dhaka (Puran Dhaka)
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Sights, Activities, Tours, Festivals & Events, Sleeping, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment and Shopping.
