New Market, Dhaka City

4.0
#4 of 10 in Shopping in Bangladesh
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.

  • 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 place
  • 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.
  • One of best choice market for all Bangladeshi. It has a old popularity and here we found our all necessary products with reasonable prices. All kinds of Cloths, Foods, electronics or other daily necessary products shop available with a huge amount. Its the best market for local and foreigners.
  • 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..
  • Best place for bargaining. Just say half if you wanna buy in good price. Possibly country's best market. There is no item you will not find here.

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.
