To appreciate Dhaka, you can take a guided tour to the old city where you’ll visit the Lalbagh Fort, an enchanting 15th century structure, the glorious pink palace called Ahsan Manzil that was built in the 1800s, and the ornate Armenian Church. Explore the city yourself and stop by the sprawling National Museum or the Liberation War Museum. Enjoy a boat ride in the Buriganga River, or a rickshaw ride down the city’s narrow streets.
