Let’s be clear from the start. Dhaka is not an Instagram location. There are no cute shops or cool murals to pose by. Exploring Dhaka involves navigating through congested, gritty and polluted roads. The constant honking, relentless movement of people and turnover of smells ensures an all-out 360-degree assault on your senses. But in return, this bustling megacity will gift you an infinite adventure, continuous photo opportunities and a cultural welcome like no other. ▶ WHERE TO STAY IN DHAKA, BANGLADESH I went for a mid-range Hotel 71 in an area that geographically sits between Gulshan and Old Dhaka – Motijheel. I chose this hotel based on aggregator reviews and recommendations from another blogger. I found Hotel 71 to be a good value for money and a good compromise location wise.
