Check out my travel story and pictures here: http://www.nomadic-by-nature.com/wading-concrete-confusion-dhaka/ This is not your typical tourist attraction, but it gives great insight into the extreme density in which people in South Asia are living and the future of many already overcrowded cities where populations continue to grow faster than the infrastructure meant to support them.
Dhaka is my home city. I born here. I love Dhaka. It is one of the busiest metropolitan city of the world. The population of the city is very high. It is 400 years old city. You can visit lot of historical places located in old Dhaka.
Lonely Planet might capture it best: "Dhaka is more than just a city, it is a giant whirlpool that sucks in anything and anyone foolish enough to come within its furious grasp. Around and around it sends them, like some wildly spinning fairground ride bursting with energy. Millions of individual pursuits constantly churn together into a frenzy of collective activity – it is an urban melting pot bubbling over." Dhaka is extremely chaotic, but filled with life and energy. Gulshan and Banani are the "nicer", expat regions but I stayed in Mirpur-1 as an intern with Grameen Bank.
I know is polluted, crowded, poor, crazy, city.. But i lEARN SO MUCH FROM IT I WOULD NEVER TRADE FOR ANY OTHER CITY..
