The world considers today’s Dhaka as a chaotic and densely populated city; maybe the density is her strength, and chaos is the rhythm of life. Dhaka has an exciting history and rich cultural heritage. Dhaka city still has a name for its exotic culinary and cuisine. Royal Bengal Tours welcomes you to explore this chaotic town to earn a unique and unforgettable memory.
An excursion to the Liberation War Museum and National Museum will increase the understanding of the culture and history of this country.
The National Parliament building is the most notable modern building in Bangladesh. Bold geometrical patterns and monumental architecture is very typical of Louis I Kahn – the world-famous American architect. A visit inside of this building is a unique experience for general tourists as well as for architects. Bangladesh shows an enormous body of architecture from different periods, which the world has not discovered yet. Royal Bengal Tours is the pioneer in establishing some unique “Architecture tours of Bangladesh” in collaboration with the Swiss Architecture Museum (S AM) for the first time in the country.
A day excursion to the old capital Sonargaon is a great treat. For someone interested in local artisanship, a trip to the pottery village to see these local artisans of Bengal and also see the people working with brass metal- creating their beautiful artwork will surely uplift your spirit. A trip to Bangladesh is incomplete without a river cruise and seeing the primitive life around the delta.
You may leave the choices up to your guide & driver to unbox their secretes and decide best as per your main points of interest and considering the traffic.
