Hatirjheel, Dhaka City

(4.3/5 based on 130 reviews on the web)
Walk along Hatirjheel, sit by the peaceful lakefront, and enjoy the views of sky, city, and bridges. The Bangladeshi Army constructed the area to ease traffic and minimize congestion, with locals using the spot to get away from the crowded city and enjoy some recreational activities. Cycle around the waterfront, enjoy the views, and grab some fresh air. If visiting at night, make sure you go as part of group, as the lakefront has a somewhat unsafe reputation after dark. Before you head to Dhaka City, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Dhaka City itinerary planner, to make sure you see all that Dhaka City has to offer, including Hatirjheel.

  • A natural place in the midst of crowdy dhaka. Fresh air and good environment with a lake view. Open place with a big space. But the matter of sorrow is the water contains odor :( Need to be improved. In a package this is a charming place. The lights lighted at night and added beuty
  • Its really beautiful in Dhaka city. People can spend their time here at evening time. Also neat and clean. Link with different roads also.
  • I just visited this location. I really loved it. I haven't seen any beautiful public place in Dhaka. It's like a park or I'd say more than a park. It is very clean and the green environment will surely amaze you. But the odor of lake water in some region feels bad. Be sure to visit with your friends, family and loved ones.
  • Hatirjheel is the largest and most beautiful lake of Dhaka city. The night view of this lake is awesome. The light work of 4 big bridge look really nice. A must visited place in Dhaka.
  • Wonderful place! Best place in Dhaka to visit! Don't miss it!
