Dhaka is the central hub for business throughout Bangladesh and is severely overpopulated. Traffic is constant 24 hours a day so be sure to consider a trip of around 2-3km's during peak time to take around 1 hour.
off peak times will be approximately 20-30 minutes. Roads are generally poor and with half of all transport taken on bicycle rickshaw's, having a car that has a good air conditioning unit is essential. Maintain a good sense of safety and Dhaka will present a good prospect of business.
Good place to buy clothes at Dhamoni. Must visit the Fort and man made lake where many people will just hang around in the evenings and nights to admire the beautiful lights.
Its good to have a local to show you around. Not many people speak English. It is better if you rent a car with a driver for a day to show you around the city.
Do not attempt to drive around on your own. Traffic in Dhaka is outrageous.
People are friendly. City is highly polluted. Need to take proper precaution. Traffic is very high. It's recommended to go out during off pick hours.
Should also be aware about safety and security.
It really good place...one can define this city - city of delicious food, there are many classy restaurant and one can find hundred of options.
Taxi is hardly find in this country and in the congested time no taxi is operated.Roads is very bad in the city and the air is polluted.
The shopping centre is full of boutiques and food eating house but without the Supermarket to shop around.Human daily life is suffering and beggars are all around.
Though crowded,you might like this place for the reason that it is good places to visit,lots of options for shopping and dining.
And above all,it is cheap too.
Dhaka has lots of historical signts that can be visited. However due to their political unrest many days are lost due to strik.
so one must be carefull when traveling. There are no major nightlife there which is a shame. However the main 5 star hotels do have bars.
It is an experience to see this city. I did not think it was this bad till I got there. The place is smelly, dirty and dusty.
However, shopping for antiques is a good experience.
Way to many mosquitos, traffic jams, poor people! If you ok with this, then can see some nice buildings and places in Dhaka!
Dhaka really isn't a nice city. I'm sure that there are some beautiful places in Bangladesh, but Dhaka isn't one of them.
Crazy traffic, that makes the hole experience.. not too nice. it's difficult to plan more tan 2-3 meetings in one day.
having a good driver is important.
Quite a daunting place for a first time visiting. Would highly recommend an experienced driver to drive you around.
too much of vehicles ,traffic jam because of that you got to wait for long to reach even a short distance.
