Visit the bustling New Market for a maddening display of what Dhaka has to offer in terms of textiles, and brace yourself for a great bargain. Otherwise, explore the great architecture found in buildings like Lalbag Fort and National Parliament House. Another must-visit is the famed Liberation War Museum – a great way to find out more about Bangladesh’s history. Sip on some cha (tea) and enjoy the views at Sadarghat as you journey on a boat, or head for some more shopping at Shankaria Bazaar – a 300-year-old market known as Hindu Street and originally set up by Hindu artisans. A flight from Kolkata to Dhaka takes 55 minutes.
