Travel to Dhaka, the political, economic and cultural centre of Bangladesh
Dhaka is one of the biggest cities in the world. Famous for its cycle rickshaws, art festivals, cuisine and culture, Dhaka boasts a beautiful old city, home to more than 2,000 buildings from the Mughal and British époques, notably the Choto Katra and Bara Katra caravansaries. You will be wowed by these impressive architectural monuments, palatial buildings with beautiful arches and decorated stone walls. If you are lucky enough to visit for the Independence Day, Language Martyr’s Day or Victory Day festivals, you will have the chance to mingle with the locals during the many public ceremonies and rallies across the city, listening to the area’s beautiful folk music as you wander through the busy streets. Take a break from sightseeing and sample some of the city’s distinctive cuisine, making sure to taste Chicken Pulao, the world famous Dhakaiya dish. And before you leave, don’t forget to visit the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum, which boasts a rare collection of personal effects and rare photographs of the father of the Bangladeshi nation. Why not travel there by rickshaw, and experience the city’s traditional and most popular form of transport ‘in action’?
