Bangshal Rd

Rickshaws in Dhaka

This street in Old Dhaka, and the adjoining Kazi Alauddin Rd, is the place to buy rickshaw parts, rickshaw art or even rickshaws themselves. The art is painted on thin strips of tin (later attached to the back of rickshaws), which can be rolled up to fit nicely inside most suitcases or rucksacks. Expect to pay around Tk 200. Bargaining is required, of course.
