"DHAKA" Top 5 Page for this destination Dhaka by travelife

Dhaka Travel Guide: 169 reviews and 471 photos

High-rise buildings and modern billboards side by side rickshaws & human-carts, excess of poverty side by side increasing number of large shoppin malls, official corruption and political unrest side by side natural hospitality by its people to the visitors, all colludes here.

Apart from the big picture, my intention here was to identify the places for hang-out, less crowded areas for a walk, locate the landmarks and places of historic interest, suggest few day-trips and introduce the captivating cuisine.

Note: The page is in progress and new info and tips are added almost every day. Check back often!

    Every now and then I stumble upon a really good VT page on a rather unknown destination. You have built some interesting pages here on Dhaka. You rarely find such concise info in travel literature - Congratulations.

    I am really thrilled to find the details of the mansion build by my grandfather Rebati Mohan Das. I would like to share this inform that other three-storied block was built by Satyendra Kumar Das (Chairman of Dhaka Municipality), elder son of R. M. Das.

    I my view the original temple may belong to 12th Cen,but was certainly renovated later, perhaps in 16th century. Just like our Kalighat temple. Good information.
