Dhaka is the capital city of Bangladesh, in southern Asia. Set beside the Buriganga River, it’s at the center of national government, trade and culture.
Dhaka is not a quiet, retiring place. The city, bursting with nearly 17 million people (most of whom often seem to be stuck in the same traffic jam as you), is a gloriously noisy and chaotic place, bubbling with energy.
It is a hub for trade and culture, with a long history as a Bengali capital. It has been called the City of Mosques and the Venice of the East, due to its Islamic architecture and a riverfront facing the Buriganga (Old Ganges). It is also known as the Rickshaw Capital of the World, as there are over 500,000 cycle rickshaws running on its roads. Although it is described as a concrete jungle, Dhaka has venerable green spaces, including many gardens and parks. Today, Dhaka is South Asia's second most populous capital after Delhi and an important financial center alongside Mumbai and Karachi.
10:00am-12:00pm : Boga Lake
Relax in magical natural scenery at Boga Lake, and get in touch with the culture of local tribal communities. The lake offers nothing but tranquility, landscapes, and starry nights, with lush greenery and three high peaks surrounding the lake, creating the perfect spot for nature lovers. Legend has it that tribesmen killed the local deity, who reappeared as a dragon. He caused an earthquake, which swallowed the nearby village and created this lake. You can only reach the lake by foot, and you'll need to hire a guide and register at the military camp. It takes about 5-7 hours to reach the lake, but you can rest in onsite guest houses when you arrive.
1:30pm-4:00pm : Cox's Bazar Beach
Take a vacation to the longest sea beach in the world at Cox's Bazar Beach.

Situated between the Bakkali River and the Bay of Bengal, the beach offers smooth sand and a gentle slope into the water, so even children can swim safely. Join in activities like speed boating, horseback riding, and playing football, or simply collect sea-worn stones from the shore.
10:00am-1:00pm : Foy's Lake Concord Amusement World
Take the kids out for a day of water slides, boat rides and entertainment at Foy's Lake Concord Amusement World, an amusement park among thick forest, hills, and a lake. Dip in the splash pools or ride down the fun water-coaster rides, then take a ride on the ferris wheel and marvel at the extensive view spreading across the lake and forest. Originally created to provide water for a nearby railroad town, the lake offers scenic trails for a better chance to enjoy the natural surroundings. Restaurants and restrooms are available on-site.
2:30pm-5:00pm : Patenga Beach
Stroll along the flat bay of Patenga Beach, scattered with large chunks of concrete to deter erosion and lined sporadically with small huts or trees. Many street vendors sell ice creams and drinks but don't miss the chance to taste the area's speciality-- fried spicy mud crab served with falafel and vegetables. The beach is mostly enjoyed by locals who come to sit on the concrete slabs and pass the time looking out to the sea, as swimming is not recommended here. Visit in the evening for a vibrant atmosphere, and the chance to see beautiful sunsets and sunrises spreading across the horizon-- known as the best in Bangladesh.
