Explore one of the largest and oldest cities in the world! Dhaka - the city of magic - will amaze you with thousands of years of history, delicious food, and its people’s unique lifestyle. The capital and the largest city in Bangladesh, Dhaka is one of the world’s most populated cities, with 17 million people living in the Greater Dhaka Area. It is also the third most densely populated city in the world, lying along the east bank of the Buriganga River in the heart of the Bengal delta. The city is the economic, cultural and political center of Bangladesh and a microcosm of the entire country, with diverse religious and ethnic communities.

Finally, end your adventure with dinner at 10 PM.
The visit with Avijatrik was interesting. Our guide Mani was awesome, very friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable. Dhaka is quite hectic so having a local to take you around is absolutely imperative. I am super glad that we had Mani to show us around because as a city, Dhaka it is quite intimidating and if we didn’t have him as a guide we probably would not have experienced the city as we did. We ate great food, took tuk tuk rides down crowded streets and even got to board a ship that was heading to the south of the country. All in all it was a eye opening and thrilling experience.
