This amusing and relaxed walking tour will introduce you to Dhaka city’s cultural blend along with a glimpse of its modern city dwellers art and living style. The tour starts with a modern art exhibition and a small walk around the city’s cultural hub Dhanmondi. You will discover how the city dwellers are enjoying their free time and you would have a chance to indulge yourself with some local street food if you feel like it. The two and a half kilometers of walking tour will include free entrance and visit of a few mesmerising points of interest including a Modern Art exhibition, Rabinda Sarobar (the famous open stage for performing Art Theatre), Boat riding in Dhanmondi Lake (at your own cost), French Cultural Hub in Dhaka City, a local street market and many more!

This tour will end at Dhaka College, from where you can take a local rickshaw (Tuk Tuk ride) if you feel like it.

We will visit New Market, one of the oldest shopping area in Dhaka, where I will help you understand how to bargain in Bangladeshi style! You can also try some famous ‘Dhakaiya’ street food and take some fabulous recipe with you to try at home!
