Your friendly local guide will meet you at your hotel lobby and will escort you to the delightful Flower Market, the biggest of its kind in town. With the morning light, there are good contrasts to be found for any keen photographers out there!
Kawran Bazaar is one of the busiest markets in the town and is extremely popular with locals. This is a great place to visit if you’re looking for an authentic slice of local life. We will also visit the adjacent fish market.
Of course you can’t experience the ‘city of rickshaws’ without riding on three wheels at least once, we’ll ride a rickshaw through the city streets, giving you a true taste of local life in Dhaka!
Feeling thirsty? Next up, we’ll stop to try some local tea accompanied by some of our favourite local snacks near Eden college street. We’ll chat to fellow tea lovers and chat about the region’s tea culture and heritage.
A pleasant stroll towards the new market is next on our morning agenda. This is the oldest market in town, where you can still find local artisans working on lots of varied craft projects. We’ll stop to chat to a block printer who is producing some attractive designs. Filled with colour and friendly artisans, this market provides many unique photography opportunities.
Your morning market adventure ends here. Feel free to continue to explore on your own or if you wish, your local guide will help you to organise a taxi / tuktuk back to your hotel.
