Sonargaon, Dhaka City

Sonargaon stands as a window to the once glorious past. See gorgeous ornate architecture, intricate flower decorations framing doors, and windows now standing completely abandoned and covered in moss. Although the development started under Buddhist control, the city flourished under several hundred years of Muslim rule. The buildings have deteriorated significantly, but some traces of the once-vibrant colors pop out now and then. Visit the folk arts and craft museum to see handiworks made by local artisans, then check out Panam city, built in colonial style during the British rule and inspired by many European cities.

  • It is a major tourist destination of Bangladeshi. Visited more than expected so many people. There were a lot of family around the pond and lawns in. Might be nice to relax in the countryside. To go by public transportation such as bus Charter car I went from Dhaka, but may be inconvenient.

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.
