The capital city of Bangladesh is more than just a business destination. With the help of the Destination Amari guide, guests can explore the city’s true charm, complemented by simple touches of local flair, whilst staying at Amari Dhaka.
As one of Bangladesh’s oldest cities, Dhaka is enriched with history that dates back to more than 3,000 years. The architecture of Dhaka still illustrates the Mughal and Victorian sense the city once had, blending with modern Dhaka. Guests can spend an entire day sightseeing around Old Dhaka, that part of the city that hugs the Buriganga River. The Royal Bengal Tours offers professional, customised walking tours of the area, led by the company’s founder, Jewel, who transforms his passion and enthusiasm for his city into memorable excursions. Guests can choose from different tour services and see the various local bazaars and markets with the best that Dhaka has to offer. Alternatively, they can opt for museums and forts, such as the iconic Ahsan Manzil or The Pink Palace, one of Dhaka’s most iconic buildings.
To make the most of the pulsating city, hop on one of the many vivid rickshaws that are carefully crafted with art and adorned with tassels, decorative pieces and painted with bold colours. Dhaka’s culinary scene has also been a well-kept secret. Being heavily influenced by Indian and Bengali cuisines, guests can find themselves surrounded by tantalising aroma of freshly cooked food. To satisfy the palate with authentic tastes, try Heritage, an upscale eatery that serves creative Bangla fusion cuisine, with favourites including the Chingri Malai Curry, a richly spiced dish of tiger prawns in coconut sauce, and desserts like Phirni, a mouth-watering rice pudding infused with saffron and slices of pistachio.
Located in Dhaka’s new business district Gulshan, Amari Dhaka is 20 minutes away from the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, in the heart of the vibrant city. Convenience is key when on a holiday, and Amari Dhaka promises comfortable and stylish rooms and suites to come back to after an exciting day of exploring.
