I flew from Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) to Dhaka (Bangladesh); the most densely populated city in the world. Riding a rickshaw on my first day was a crazy travel experience in Bangladesh.
My hotel was in Naya Paltan (a residential area between Old Dhaka and New Dhaka). I wanted to go close to the Old Town, so I looked up Google Maps and found “Tikatuli”. I had no idea what to expect there. But it turned out to be a good choice, as it was near the railway.
The greater area of Dhaka has a population of 20 million people. Traffic in Dhaka is so crazy. Most Bangladeshi people use rickshaws as the main means of transportation. Dhaka in general is very cheap for Western travellers.
