Hiring a Guide?

Jump to last reply

Hey guys, I'm flying into Dhaka and will have two full days to explore the city. I've drawn up a list of the places I want to visit however seeing as I've never been to Dhaka before I was wondering if you think it'd be advisable to hire a local guide to take me around so I don't spend half my time getting lost.

Places I want to visit;

- Sadarghat River station.
- Buriganga River
- Ship repair yard
- Karwan bazar
- Korail slum
- Kamlapur station area
- Hindu street
- Chawalk bazar.

If you can help with where I'd go about hiring a guide and how much you think the rate would be?

Many thanks to anyone who can help.

Jon.
