People of Dhaka

There is one thing that Bangladesh has that makes it unique and that’s the Bangladeshi people themselves. It’s difficult to put into words what exactly makes Bangladeshis stand out from other nationalities. I have shared great experiences with many people from all over the world but the Bangladeshi spirit, honesty and enthusiasm for life are stunning.

Bangladesh has had a tough time over the past few decades with a major war, numerous natural disasters and ongoing political issues being the main causes, but the people are welcoming and happy and above all, they are genuine in their friendliness. You rarely get the impression that they want anything more than to say hello, ask a few questions or have their photo taken with you.
