  • This time to go to the other one of their home in the city branch, feeling that a lot of goods are not complete, size and style depends on your luck. Even on a weekday afternoon, the popularity of this area is still very flourishing. There is also a small restaurant in the shop where you can rest and eat.

  • Aarong uses decentralised manufacturing process to accomplish its goal as a social business by employing production workers in various rural and semi-urban areas. A purely commercial business would locate its production centres in concentrated areas where infrastructure and a low-cost labour supply are available. Many of the products are produced in off-site locations by workers who have very little exposure to the final products that are sold at the retail level.
  • One and only place where you can find such elegant things in the city. It's unique in every aspect. Fantastic decor with this particular outlet.

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.
