Hatirjheel, Dhaka City

3.8
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. Put Hatirjheel into our Dhaka City road trip site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Dhaka City.

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.
