The bustling river port is a great spot to see a wide variety of Bangladeshis, travelers, hawkers, porters, crew... A small boat ride offers you the water-level view... like anywhere else in Dhaka, can be hellacious to reach during bad traffic....

Sadarghat is the one and only water transport hub in Dhaka City, that's why it is one of a most crowded place in Dhaka. Not friendly place for new visitors, cause, some pick pockets always active to hijack bag, purse, etc at the crowded place. Also the water of the Buriganga River is very polluted.

Sadarghat is a famous lunch terminal in Dhaka city. If any body would like to go to Southern districts of Bangladesh by river and take a launch/boat must go to Sadarghat which is situated on the bank of the river Buriganga. Water of the river is very dirty and has a unhealthy atmosphere. Sadarghat has lots of shops and many... More

If you want to taste something different, specially, the maddening experience of bustling Dhaka, you gotta go to this place. It crowded, dirty, polluted but full of life. You will never get bored. A boat ride can enhance your experience further.

Almost 30 years ago, it was a nice place for one hour ride by boat. The Sadarghat was also very good crowded place for tourist to see Motor Vessels of different sizes.

Hub of the waterways from Dhaka. Though a very noisy and congested place you may feel the charm of old Dhaka. Lot of restaurants with typical old Dhaka ambience and menu. The water of the Buriganga is very polluted and smelly. Be careful if you are traveling somewhere. Don't forget to visit Ahsan Manzil which is very near if you... More
