This comprehensive tour of Dhaka lets you explore the old city, the markets, contrasting modern architecture and finish it all up watching a performance at the national theatre. Enjoy the perfect introduction to Dhaka with this tour which is an all-in-one day out in the city. Cover all the city sites, from historic landmarks to modern architecture — as well as a thrilling ride on a rickshaw, of course! Start by stepping into the old city, where you’ll explore sites like the Kawran Bazar vegetable market, and along the Sadarghat waterfront. This bustling port is constantly buzzing with activity, as boats of all sizes ferry passengers and cargo along the Buriganga River. You also pay a visit to Ahsan Manzil, also known as the Pink Palace, which was built in the 1800s as the residential palace of the Nawab family.

From there, continue to Shankhari Bazar, one of the oldest areas of Old Town. Fuel up partway through your adventure with lunch at a local restaurant specializing in Chinese, Thai, Indian, and Bengali cuisines, before heading off to the Parliament building, also known as Jatiyo Sangsad Bhaban and considered one of the world’s most significant examples of modern 20th-century architecture. From there, visit Lalbag, a 17th-century Mughal fort that’s said to be a monument to the unfulfilled dreams of a prince during that time. We’ll also see Dhakeshwari Temple, said to be the most important place of worship for Hindus in Bangladesh.

After all that exploring, you’ll then get to relax in none other than the national theatre. This theatre is known for its cultural performances of epic Bengali love stories, and we’re going to take in a traditional stage performance that shows off Bangladesh’s culture and heritage. Most of the shows here are performed by professional drama troupes, so you’re sure to see an excellent performance! After an enthralling show, wrap up your day with a rickshaw ride through the city streets, giving you a true taste of local life in Dhaka! Following recent safety incidents we recommend that you check your government's advice for their latest information on travelling in Bangladesh before your departure and ensure that your travel insurance covers you for all areas of your itinerary.
