  • Are concerned may end up writing too much and become a tourist, but on the other side is recommended. You won't be ripped off if you ride a boat along with local people. Dhaka is even less tourists, but on the other side doesn't like tourists further. Could be fun and not a pure local people.

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.
