Overview

Explore major highlights of Dhaka on this city tour that leads you into the old city along the waterfront, through markets, and into the historic Shankhari Bazar district. Don your Indiana Jones hat and venture into the old city as you explore sites like the Kawran Bazar vegetable market, which is located close to the rail line and an excellent spot for people-watching and snapping photos. Hundreds of people come here to shop and to work, and it’ll give you a great peek into daily life in Dhaka.

Continue onward to the flower market and along the Sadarghat waterfront, a bustling port befoe heading to Ahsan Manzil, also known as the Pink Palace, which was built in the 1800s as the residential palace of the Nawab family. Today, it’s a national museum showing the history of the royal home. If the museum is open, you can go in and take a look around. Then it’s time to explore Shankhari Bazar, one of the oldest areas of Old Town, and the site of many historic Hindu temples — in fact, while Dhaka is primarily a Muslim city, this district has the highest concentrations of Hindus in all of Dhaka. In addition to seeing signs of local Hindu culture, you’ll also see an Armenian church from the 18th century and the spectacular Star Mosque.

Finally hop aboard a rickshaw to really get a feel for local life as you take in the city’s most iconic sites! Finish up your tour with lunch at a local restaurant specializing in Chinese, Thai, Indian, and Bengali cuisines, where you can unwind with your new friends, and get any tips you need for the rest of your day 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.
