Dhaka is the capital of Bangladesh and one of the most densely populated cities in this world. More than a million people live in about 300 square kilometre. There is a part of Dhaka which is known as the old town. This old town is chaotic, old, crowded, filthy, but full of life! Here goes some moments based on my walk in this city of smiling people....

Shwedagon Pagoda – inside a world of Gold

I landed in Yangon Airport in a sunny evening. It was about 4:00 PM. I had to catch a bus to Bagan at 8:00 PM from the Aung Mingalar bus station. So, I had technically little over 3 hours to see something. From the airport, I tried to validate my idea of going to see the Shwedagon pagoda and catch the bus afterwards. They just simply told me that I was going to miss the bus if I do so. They suggested me to go to some alternate pagodas nearby. But, I was ready to take a risk to see this gem, and...

সীমানা ছাড়াতে চাই

মানুষের চেয়ে শক্তিশালী প্রাণী অনেক আছে। বাঘের সামনে খালি হাতে যাওয়া তো দূরের কথা, অনেকগুলো পিঁপড়ার মাঝেও মানুষ অনেক অসহায়। মানুষের খেতে হয় তিনবেলা, ঘুমাতে হয় নিয়মিত, একটু এদিক থেকে ওদিক হলেই ভয়ে কুঁকড়ে যায়। তিলে তিলে গড়া কত সাধনার ফসল একটা সামান্য মশার কামড়েও শেষ হয়ে যেতে পারে। কিন্তু এই মানুষেরই কী অসাধারণ মানসিক শক্তি, কী অসামান্য সাহস। শারীরিক সীমাবদ্ধতা সত্ত্বেও এই মানুষই বরফ ঢাকা, পাতলা হয়ে আসা অক্সিজেনের পরোয়া না করে, হিমালয়ের ওপরে উঠে যাচ্ছে। মহামান্য এডমুণ্ড হিলারি আর...

Never in my life, I went through so much of mixed emotions in 2 days during a travelling. I was just middle of a trip from beautiful Sri Lanka and landed in Maldives for two nights before moving to my next destination of the trip. Here goes a summary of it. Hate: Immigration officer - I believe, they are not much used to see a lot of backpackers with a Bangladeshi passport. Several of them was called for by the officer in charge to investigate my arrival. On top of asking countless...

Maldives for backpackers

I always dreamt about going to Maldives! Who doesn't if you see those photos in the net! However, everyone told me that, Maldives is for people having thick wallet, it's a place where only rich people can afford. So, I told myself that - "Well, you are gonna rich someday, may be in 100 years, so don't think about this place for now and revive the plan after 102 years" and went back to work. During the middle of 2015, I opened a map and was drawing where can I go? I looked into India...

Where to stay in Perhentian Island?

Whenever I go to somewhere, I try to book hotel online ahead of time. This is mainly because - I don't want to waste any time looking for hotel in an unknown place I don't want to get any surprise about my budget, which is controllable if I book ahead I can't enjoy a city until I leave my backpack in a hotel after a long flight Unfortunately, when I was searching my hotel in my popular booking platforms Agoda and Booking.com regarding Perhentian Island, I could not find a lot of...
