Your friendly local guide will meet you at your hotel and then together we’ll hop aboard public transport and head to Dhaka University campus, the centre of student life in the city and a real treat for architecture fans. We’ll then head over to beautiful Curzon Hall one of the most beautiful examples of British/Mogul architecture in India, as we walk we’ll pass by the Language Monument and Sculpture Square.
History and architecture buttons sufficiently pressed, we’re thinking about our stomachs now as we move towards the New Market to taste some authentic local snacks and indulge in a spot of window shopping as we peruse the oldest market in town. This is one of the liveliest spots in Dhaka, offering a spice and vegetable market, street food vendors, food stores and clothing and footwear stalls. This is a unique opportunity to see the real Dhaka after dark — you’ll hang out with locals, see some authentic culture, and enjoy delicious traditional cuisine! Stunning views come by way of a quick stop on a pedestrian bridge to admire scenes of frenetic rickshaw lanes, city traffic and people walking everywhere!
We’ll ride a rickshaw into the old part of the city, a district that’s famous for its fabulous street food. Chapatti, nan, biriyani, and many other dishes are the delicacies you’ll find here, and you’ll be free to browse the stalls and grab any delights that catch your eye and tempt your taste buds!
Your tour ends here but your guide will be more than happy to help you arrange a transfer back to your accommodation. Don’t forget to ask for more tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay.
