National Parliament House, Dhaka City

Designed by celebrated American architect Louis Kahn, National Parliament House offers an architectural feast for the eyes. Completed in 1982, after the Liberation War, it features simple geometrical shapes, well-manicured lawns, and modern buildings with plentiful daylight. While the main building, surrounded by an artificial lake, remains closed to the general public, you're free to explore the rest of the complex on a relaxing walk or invigorating jog.

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.
