Take a rickshaw ride with the hood down on an open road on a rainy day before you die; if you don’t, you will have died without living. There are millions of rickshaws in Dhaka and the art on the back represents how most people in this city live their lives – colorful and cheap. Only in Dhaka will you see dogs and cats roam the streets as they own it, littering where they want. These animals are stray not because the people are too heartless to take them in, but because animals need to be free and the confines of assured care and food will destroy them, which the people of this city understand. The mama haleem, the chotpoti fuchka, and the jhalmuri are few of the things that define Dhaka’s street food scene (food carts can rot in hell). In the old town, there’s biryani being sold out of shops that have been there for centuries. In a way Dhaka is like Hogwarts – help will always be provided in Dhaka to those who are lucky enough to get it. The others get mugged, obviously. you could go drive around Hatirjheel at night.

It is a quite populated city. The people are very friendly. Communication to other places are easy. Rent is quite low. There are lots of shops. There are all sorts of facilities available. Lovely environment. There are parks and lakes. Transportation facilities are great. Lots of jobs available. There are playgrounds for kids. Great city all-together.

Before moving on to Dhaka city, one must remember that it is a densely populated city of Bangladesh. here traffic jam and environment pollution are main factors which should be look upon mainly. Besides, the living cost is very much expensive. On the other hand, the accessibility of things are easily available.

Have a good sense of direction, and an ability to follow directions well. They need to be patient to successfully tackle traffic issues. They might consider knowing how to cook, to save expenses, since food over here is quite expensive. They would need to have some sort of savings before, since landing a job is a bit tricky.

Dhaka is actually an overpopulated city, so people’s living standard is not up to the mark. Traffic is always heavy and the house rent or other expenses are high too. Also, because of overpopulation, the working opportunity is less too. for the person considering whether to move, I’d suggest to look for other options.

People should know about the transport facilities. We have many historical places where people can travel. We also have many tourist spots. We have the largest sea beach in the world. Besides we have many cultural diversities. For easy transport we have rickshaws which cost less. To save money people can travel through rickshaws. people can easily travel.

The lifestyle of Dhaka city is very expensive. Excessive population lives here with unplanned economy and traffic system need to be improved. Too much pollution creates medical hazard. The atmosphere may be a little overwhelming. Still, if someone seeks an active and adventurous experience, the city is exactly what you need.

Tahidul, says: 2020

One must know about the house rent the transport system and different markets to buy the necessities of daily life. It is important to know how how are the people of this city deal with strangers. One must also understand that as a newcomer he or she should take some extra time to adjust with the place and people.
