Dhaka is the capital of Bangladesh and is the largest city of the country. It is an overcrowded metropolis which offers the best cultural glimpse of Bangladesh. The streets are a riot of colors and the city is utterly chaotic and bustling with life.
Since the weather in Dhaka is tropical, summer months from March to September are extremely hot and humid. Winter is cooler and is the best time to visit Dhaka with temperatures hovering around 20 degree Celsius and humidity is a lot low.
Ahsan Manzil, National Parliament Complex, Baldha Garden, Lalbagh Fort, Dhakeshwari Temple, National Botanical Garden, Banga Bhaban, Curzon Hall, Baitul Mukarram Mosque and the Dhammarajika Bouddha Maha Vihar are some of the best tourist attractions in Dhaka.
You will see an overwhelming amount of cycle-rickshaws so for short distances commuting by cycle- rickshaw is a cheap option and charges start from BDT30 for a 15 minute ride. Buses ply within the city and are the cheapest, but travel by bus only if you know where to get on and get off. Auto-rickshaws are the cheapest for long distances within the city so settle for the fare first.
