Bashundhara City

Mall in Dhaka

Claiming to be the 12th largest mall in the world, Bashundhara City is worth visiting to experience the middle-class Bangladeshi dream. In the swish surroundings there are something like 2000 shops and restaurants, local and international brands, a multiplex cinema and bowling alley. It's a destination in itself, but the switch from rickshaw-crowded roads to inside can leave you spinning.
