Flea Market Shopping
The largest market in Dhaka, triangular-shaped New Market spreads over 98 ha (242 ac) where one can find almost anything: textiles, cosmetics, food, souvenirs, jewelry, optics, travel equipment, and antique books, and more. Stop for a snack at one of the many vendors selling local food, and put your haggling skills to use to negotiate cheaper prices. Don't miss the so-called Aeroplane Mosque, a result of the large model aeroplane perched on the fifth-floor roof. Arrange to visit New Market and other attractions in Dhaka City using our Dhaka City tour planner.

  • The most anticipated shopping destination for the people who like to shop in a way where they need a lot of option the chose from. The market area is huge in size. almost everything is available in this place. if you don't know how to bargain it's better to not getting upset by buying things with high price. The best part is it has a big open space in it's open ground shop part.
  • Best place in dhaka, you can get anything from here.. Its the place where you can find stuffs at cheapest rate. But it's better to keep someone who is acquainted with the market. In bargaining its important. Anyway it's a place with huge place, under the blue sky. It's also a place for passing a good time..
  • One of the oldest markets of the country and also one of the most prestigious ones. Anything and everything can be found here from cookeries to bags, from stationary to sanitary amenities. Which is why new market is one of the busiest markets in Dhaka and Bangladesh as well. A must visit. But one must keep his/her belongings close to themselves as pickpocket can also take place.
  • Dhaka new market is a common shopping sector for all the people lives in Dhaka. Here you need to bargain with the shopkeepers for buying cloths, ornaments and domestic materials. But if you have Idea about good products and their price, you may have a very good things with a little price.. Unless they will take a large amount for any low quality product.
  • It is one of the most popular and busiest markets in Dhaka city. Though it's not a market of luxury, thousands of people especially middle class make their shopping here. The market is well designed and all necessary items can be found here. But, sometimes the shoppers make misconducts with the customers which should be stopped.
