    • New Guy Traveling to Dhaka

      by arundouyr Online Now Apr 25, 2015 at 10:48 AM

      I am a chicken who is venturing out of its nest for the first time in life. In other words, I am leaving my country India behind and crossing the border for the first time. It all started when I met someone on Facebook and he said a lot about Dhaka and how beautiful it is. I am on a break from my work and so I want to visit there now. I have been planning it for a long time but money's always been tight. I am kinda excited now (I mean, next month).

      The thing is I plan to stay there for a month (a day or two less maybe) and my budget around 2000 INR or 2400 BDT. Room quality or room service doesn't matter, I don't even need a hotel; I can stay at a dorm or a mess as I am a single, no-frills guy, or even as a paying guest. I can also stay in hostels. Just a single bed and shared bathroom would do. The thing is that since I want to see Dhaka I need to stay somewhere in Dhaka only; if I stay somewhere else like Khulna or Barisal the journey from there to Dhaka would leave me too tired for anything else. I asked my friend for accommodation at his home but he said his family is very conservative about such things. Please let me know names of areas in Dhaka where I can find cheap accommodations like this, as I would need to specify it as an entry point in my Visa application. Thanks

    • Living conditions in Bangla Desh, particularly in Dakha

      by forren Online Now Jan 31, 2012 at 6:54 AM

      Hello, I'm an Italian Geologist 41 years old, and I've just received a good job offer for one year in Bangla Desh. Basically, I would be based in an office in Dakha, in the quarter of Baridhara, but sometimes with field surveys in Rangpur, Dinajpur, Mymensingh, Tangail, Bogra, and Rajshahi. The job position is extremely attractive and fascinating and also the salary is good (I wuold be payed in Thai Bhat, about 60000 per month, equivalent to 163445.13 Takas, if I correctly converted the currency). I am really excited of this job opportunity, but at the same time I quite worried.
      Browsing on the web I read many controversial information on Dakha and Bangladesh in general. Someone speaks of an awful hot and wet climate, of terrible infective diseases, millions of mosquitoes (including those transmitting the Dengue virus), very bad and dangerous public transports, not drinkable water, unsafe food, very poor hospitals, old houses and hotels not very clean, high levels of criminality, continuous political and religious disorders and fightings. Some others, instead, report of a beautiful, peaceful country, with just some danger of diseases in rural areas.
      Now, taking into account that I'm accustomed to European standards of living and that I should work there for at least one year (not just a few weeks as a tourist) can somebody objectively describe the living conditions in Dakha and in the rest of Bangladesh? Do you think it's worth accepting such a job offer? I am particular worried about infective diseases. Can someone tell me precisely which the compulsory and suggested vaccinations are? And in which do these vaccinations consist? Pills or injections? How long does it take, on the whole, such preventive cures? Just a few days or weeks? Thanks in advance for any answer. Regards.

Do people work then or is it a public holiday and they have all the days off? Or just one day off? How is shopping during these days? Public transports? Thank you very much for your answers.
