Nilket, Dhaka City

3.8
Find books of all shapes, sizes, and genres at Nilket, the largest book market in Bangladesh. Wind your way through the maze of narrow streets and alleyways to find magazines, comic books, and a wide range of new and used editions--including a vast selection of English-language literature at affordable prices. Local students from nearby Dhaka University find their textbooks here; printing and making photocopies in the market is practically a rite of passage. Plan to bargain and negotiate prices with vendors. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Dhaka City holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Nilket and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

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.
