Often described as one of the poorest, dirtiest cities in the world, Dhaka is by no means an easy place to live. Rubbish is everywhere, beggars are as common as corrupt officials (very common) and several slums are found around the city. However, don’t judge a book by its cover, because once you delve into it, Dhaka is one of the most amazing cities in the world. Where else can you buy a 5p cup of tea on any street corner? What other cities have their most beautiful artwork displayed on the back of rickshaws? Where else can you almost get killed by an elephant? Nowhere except Dhaka. Dhaka is such a vibrant mix of cutures and people, and every day you find yourself thinking “I can’t believe I’m here!” If you want to go somewhere to meet lovely people, eat great food, get a slice of history and be a part of the world’s most fascinating culture, Dhaka is the place for you.
