  • This is a place where you can find any book whatever you want. Probably not the original one but you will get one. And it has a large printing area where you can print anything in any paper, any size....  more »
  • Its a really good place for second hand books and original ones and they are very cheap and you can select from uncountable options.though it is a bit crowdy.  more »

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.
