Getting there & away
Sonargaon is only 23km from central Dhaka and makes an easy day trip. From Dhaka’s Sayedabad bus station, say the buzz word ‘Mograpara’ (Tk 30, 40 minutes – if the traffic is on your side!). If you ask for Sonargaon, you will likely end up at the Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel. Once you’re in Mograpara, a short rickshaw ride will get you to the museum and other sights. Rickshaw-wallahs will guess what you’re there to see.
