Old Dhaka

Our river guide, Nurislam, saw it as his duty to show us some of the highlights of the old city. We walked through the narrow streets with tall rambling buildings either side and narrow alleyways in between, with shops neatly arranged and vibrant colours. We even took a rickshaw ride to Bicycle Street to see the rickshaw builders. This area is being knocked down and re built constantly and we have a sense that in a few years this development will change the character of the old city.
