About Dhaka

The Venice Of The East

There are very few cities like Dhaka, steeped in history with one of the most densely packed populations in the world. Over 20 million residents call it’s sprawling streets home and it’s renowned as a non-stop hub of trade and culture – giving it a similar feel to New York or Tokyo. The city’s nickname ‘the Venice of the east’ comes from the Buriganga River that serves as the main thoroughfare throughout the various boroughs, particularly the port of Sadarghat which sits at the South of the city’s old town area. Explore Dhaka if you want to experience a bustling city full of new cultures, experiences and more!

Hotels in Dhaka

As with most cosmopolitan cities, travellers from every walk of life with any budget will find suitable accommodation. The key is making your money go as far as possible, British tourists will find they can get a lot for their pounds so consider upgrading to a higher class of accommodation than you would normally book while in the city.


Shopping in Dhaka

If you can think of it, you can probably buy it in Dhaka. The sprawling bazaars are full to the brim with treasures, from mouth-watering food to striking souvenirs, often for a fraction of the price they would be in Britain. Armed with a healthy dose of scepticism, you should be able to leave the city with plenty of great finds.


Food & Drink in Dhaka

Any visit to Dhaka would be incomplete without a lavish sampling of the local street food. Famous in Bangladesh, Dhaka street food varies from the traditional to borderline avantgarde with top treats including Fuchka dough balls with various fillings, Rumali Roti reminiscent of fajitas and puffy Jhalmuri rice.


Events in Dhaka

With its large population and diverse culture, almost every day in Dhaka sees some sort of celebration or festival but here’s a couple of our favourites:


Dhaka World Music Festival

Normally taking place around February, the Dhaka World Music Festival sees folk singers and performers of all kinds flock to the city giving impromptu performances in the streets as well as larger performances at the city’s top venues.

Dhaka Art Summit

A bi-annual summit showcasing the artistic talent of Dhaka’s residents and even those further afield across Bangladesh, Dhaka Art Summit is a must if you get the opportunity to experience it. This is an exciting time for the city as artistic works take over every corner, creating a bombastic barrage of colour and culture.
