Introduction
Dhaka It was formerly known as Dacca. It is the capital of Bangladesh, which became independent in 1971. Like most capitals, it is a cosmopolitan city with a large number of foreigners living and working here. Being also the business capital of the country, it has a very large polulation (10 million?) and its roads are extrmely busy and congested during business hours. The city has a lot of variety and there are a lot of historical places to see in all three sections - the old city, the central city and the new city, to suit all types of travellers. A group of university students from UCLA thought that a morning boat ride on the half mile wide Buriganga River, in the old city, where one can see the people living and doing business on water followed by a stop at a bankside village during market day was like visiting a natural Disney World. A boat trip to the Sunderbans forest, the home of the Royal Bengal Tigers, starting from either Dhaka (Sadarghat) or Khulna, is a must for all travellers to Bangladesh. Those who love the sea/beach should visit Cox's Bazaar and Kuakata.
