The first weekend I was here we went on a marathon day trip to Sonargon, the markets and Savar….a lot to pack in to just a day! The pink palace was in Sonargon. Apparently this area is pretty touristy in drier weather, and a good picnic spot.
The bus is representative of many Dhaka buses. This is business class. Heaven help us. Surprisingly the bus is not going to be high on my list of local transport to try!
The marathon day out also took us to the port, the Armenian church, the Star Mosque and the markets in Old Dhaka. I managed to pay less than 3 quid for the Bollywood rickshaw art – bargain!
Then off to the National Monument in Savar.
