Nestled along the banks of the Buriganga River, colourful Dhaka is Bangladesh’s capital and is home to more rickshaws than any other city in the world. The Four Points by Sheraton Dhaka, Gulshan offers convenient accessibility in its commercial and residential district. Offices and restaurants are just steps from our hotel, and Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (DAC) is less than six kilometres away.

Explore Dhaka’s hundreds of mosques, important monuments, memorials, and parks. One of the best ways to do so is on a river cruise. Along the way, stop to see jute cultivation, weaving, and pottery making in a traditional village. Ahsan Manzil, one the city’s most famous buildings, is a magnificent pink structure filled with Nawab relics. Other top attractions include the impressive National Parliament House, designed by the famous architect Louis Khan, and the palatial Bangahaban, the official residence and office of the president of Bangladesh. The Mughal palace fortress Lalbagh Fort is highlighted by the tomb of Pari Bibi, its mosque, and the Diwan-i-Aam. Filled with exotic plants, Baldha Garden is also worth visiting.

Located about 30 kilometres from Dhaka, Sonargaon is one of Bengal’s oldest capitals. Situated 35 kilometres away in Savar, the National Memorial was designed by Syed Moinul Hossain and is dedicated to those who died during the Bangladesh Liberation War in 1971.

Get a cultivated dose of ancient art at the National Museum. Laden with relics, it is one of South Asia’s largest museums. Peruse the local folk art, paintings, and handicraft shops at the Institute of Arts and Crafts. Handicrafts made by 65,000 weavers, potters, brass workers, jewellers, jute workers, basket weavers, wood carvers, and leather workers can be seen at the fair trade organisation Artisan. Browse the antiques at Dhaka City Corporation Market. Savour some irresistibly tantalising and fragrant local Bengali cuisine, which often incorporates Persian and Arabic elements.
