High-end hotels, clubs and homes: Delhi Night Life

You may find a resemblance to high-end decadent night life in the top hotels in town and clubs and homes of international businesses and representations.
If you are looking for a cold beer - none of that in the streets or local businesses - my best bet are the coffe bars, bars, and restaurants of the top hotels.

Dress Code: A business jacket over a nice shirt, ok shoes will do (male).

Directions: Just get to any of the three-four top hotels.

Theme: Eating and Drinking

Night activity: sky watching - Bangladesh

Night activity: sky watching

Night life in the countryside

There isn't much night activity in Bangladeshi villages outside festival times.
Bring a book, torch, postcards and other self-entertainment things unless you want to hit the sack at 9 pm.
Schools and religious institutions with boarding pupils and students organise devotional songs and music as the end-of-the day program, and this can be very, very beautiful and a moving experience, not to be missed.

Lighting them nuts - Bangladesh

Lighting them nuts

The roast peanut peddler: Street hangouts

When night falls the remaining street peddlers set themselves up with kerosene lamps. The peanut sellers' portable stalls become places of snacks and light conversations - easy to mingle and you will help draw more cutomers. Your presence is much appreciated. And the nuts are good, too!

Dress Code: Anything modest goes. But it's definitely after hours and longyi time.

Fish of all sorts ready for the pot - Bangladesh

Fish of all sorts ready for the pot

The market block at Shantinagar: Dhaka markets after night

As a nightlife spot it's a bit odd, depending on your definition.
I found it very, very interesting to visit the semi-indoor markets (fish, spices, vegetables, fruits, meat, garments, you name it) in the Shantinagar area after darkness has fallen outside. Here the freshest ingredients for today's dinner og tomorrow's breakfast are purchased.
This is a good place to buy your mosquito net, too.
Just take in the atmosphere and be prepared for a bit of stir; this ain't a tourist spot.

Address: Shantinagar, Dhaka
