What people are saying about Dhaka

Overall rating

3.8 / 5

based on 4 reviews

Good: Safe as a solo female traveller. Museum was interesting. Felt safe with the driver and driving style. People are friendly and warm. Goaldi Mosque was also good to see. Handicraft village has textiles like saris, pots, little items like pestle and mortars etc... Improvements: Could check if all activities were available before we arrived as we couldn't do panam city because it was closed. More information on each activity, including history and political background rather than basic facts. Could do an activity with the villagers or even encourage questions between the villagers and the visitor Note: The village activity is more a charity activity so if you want to bring medicines like aspirin etc, or extra money or some sweets for the kids feel free. You won't be pressured into giving anything.
