Bangladesh’s capital city is not a destination for the faint-hearted. More than 18 million people crowd the energetic metropolis of Dhaka, and at a mere 315-square miles, the population density alone guarantees this city is always abuzz. Add to that more than 400,000 rickshaws cramming the city streets, and it soon becomes apparent that, despite the never-ending traffic, Dhaka is a city that is constantly on the move. Still, for visitors who can keep pace with this ever-changing capital, Dhaka is a gem of a destination simply waiting to be discovered.

Dhaka is the most modern city in all of Bangladesh, though traces of the city’s past can still be found throughout areas like Old Dhaka. Historic architecture defines this neighborhood, which is pointedly less affluent than areas like upscale Gulshan. Fishermen’s boats line the waters of the river Buriganga in Old Dhaka, while historic monuments dot the landscape of the 17th century Lalbagh Fort. One of the true stars of Old Dhaka, though, is Shankharia Bazaar, Also known as Hindu Street, this colorful area of Old Dhaka is filled with everything from fragrant flowers to handcrafted kites. Many of the stalls double as workshops for the artisans who set up shop in Shankharia Bazaar, too.

Nearby, the grand pink hues of Ahsan Manzil, also known as the Pink Palace, offer a respite from the constant bustle of the city and are a sharp contrast against the muddy banks of neighboring Sadarghat, the city’s main waterfront that sees a constant flow of fishermen and boats.

Speaking of contrasts, a host of religious sites — mosques, churches and temples — reflect the various religious influences of Dhaka’s past and present. Museums and parks round out the cultural offerings of Dhaka, and if you are looking for a taste of the finer side of this dynamic city, the upscale restaurants of the Gulshan and Banani neighborhoods are sure to impress.

How long is the flight to Dhaka?

Flights to Dhaka, Bangladesh from the United States range from about 21h-50h. The precise length of your flight will depend on several factors, including your city of departure and the number and length of stopovers you experience. If you’re departing from as far west as Los Angeles, you can expect your flight to be on the shorter end of the range, while those flying out from the east coast, like out of New York City, are more likely to experience a flight time on the longer end of the range due to geographical location. You’re also likely to experience more stopovers the further away your departure city is from Dhaka, though this may depend on the airline.
