If you’re only in Dhaka for a short time but still want to get under the surface of what makes the Bangladeshi capital tick, then jump aboard this awesome full-day guided tour. Beginning with an exploration of the Old City, with sites on the itinerary including the bustling Kawran Bazaar, and the Sadarghat waterfront, you’ll also see the stunning pink Ahsan Manzil palace. From there it’s on to the Shankhari Bazaar, one of the city’s oldest areas and awash with prestigious Hindu temples.
Pausing only to refuel with a delicious lunch at a local restaurant specialising Chinese, Thai, Indian and Bengali cuisines, it’s on to the Parliament building, a magnificent architectural gem and one of the world’s largest legislative complexes. You’ll see the 17th century Mughal fort, Lalbaug, and the famed Dhakeshwari temple, before the piece de resistance - an evening at the theatre. Your Dhaka gift experience finishes with a traditional stage performance at the prestigious National Theatre. Then it’s a return to your hotel - but not by bus, by rickshaw, because no visit to Dhaka would be complete without a fast-paced ride on three-wheels through these buzzing streets. An exhilarating and fascinating day out.
