Dhaka City

Trip Planner Asia  /  Bangladesh  /  Dhaka Division  /  Dhaka City

Rickshaw Capital of the World

One of the most congested and busiest cities in the world, Dhaka has a great deal to offer for everyone's taste. An estimated 400,000 rickshaws pack the streets of this city, known for its mosques and muslin. Tours of Dhaka offer a dazzling range of historic Islamic architecture, markets, and other religious sites--from Hindu temples to an Armenian Orthodox church. Visit its huge bazaar or local markets, then relax while observing countless boats and ships crawling across the mouth of the Buriganga River. Boat tours and the city zoo provide family-friendly options. A stark contrast between rich and poor, old and new, the city bustles with activity across the financial divide. Bars and restaurants serve up spicy food and entertainment, while colorful folk handicrafts make popular souvenirs. Dhaka City is in Dhaka Division.

Where to stay in Dhaka City

Hotels in Dhaka are among the world's most affordable, but due to a lack of tourist infrastructure you should plan ahead to avoid misunderstanding. Most of the upmarket hotels group in the downtown area, while budget hotels cluster in Old Dhaka. There is a wide range of room or apartment rentals and guesthouses, though some areas impose restrictions for renting out to foreigners. If staying long-term, explore options in Gulshan and Banani, north of town.
