Buriganga River Boat Ride (Sadarghat) Slideshow - Old Dhaka, Bangladesh [03:11]
This is a slideshow series from a Buriganga river boat ride I took near the Sadarghat in Old Dhaka, Bangladesh. A trip to Old Dhaka is not complete without taking a boat ride down the Buriganga "Old Ganges" river in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Small crafts compete for space on the river front with enormous freighters and other large vessels. It makes for a fascinating dynamic. I took a humble row boat out on the waters near the Sadarghat. It at times was extremely scary as we got quite close to some very large ships. There are fatalities on this river from time to time. I was lucky to have a safe ride with the opportunity to do a lot of filming. nomadicsamuel.com The Buriganga is economically very important to Dhaka. Launches and Country Boats provide connection to the other parts of Bangladesh, a largely riverine country. When the Mughals made Dhaka their capital, in 1610, the banks of the Buriganga were already a prime location for trade. The river was also the city's main source of drinking water. Today, the Buriganga river is afflicted by the noisome problem of pollution. The chemical waste of mills and factories, home waste, medical waste, sewage, dead animals, plastics, and oil are some of the Buriganga's pollutants. The city of Dhaka discharges about 4500 tons of solid waste every day and most of it is released into the Buriganga.[citation needed] According to the Department of the Environment (DoE), 20000 tonnes of tannery waste, including some highly toxic materials, are ...

Dhaka - Dhaka City, Bangladesh (ahmed art foundation rickshaw dhaka, jamuna rickshaw art) [01:48]
A TripAdvisor™ TripWow video of a travel blog to Dhaka, Bangladesh by TravelPod blogger Tsargood. See this TripWow and more at tripwow.tripadvisor.com Dhaka "On the train journey from Rajshahi to Dhaka we spot the first Westerners. They are an older couple who have been living in Bangladesh for many years and teach at the University in Rajshahi. They say the only see tourists once in a blue moon and that it's usually friends or family that they have invited! We make friends with a couple of very friendly businessmen who are sitting opposite us and spend a good 5 hours chatting with them. We cross the enormous Jamuna river (about 3km wide) on the one and only bridge and are soon pulling into our final destination, which is some way out of Dhaka. The train pulling out of the station as we pull in is absolutely rammed with people - hanging out the doors and windows and balancing precariously on the roof. Our new friends direct us into a taxi then onto a bus before saying goodbye. They pay all the fares for us, but won't accept any money. They have given us their phone numbers and insist we call them if we need any help at all while we're in Dhaka. We've never experienced such profound hospitality before! So we've finally made it to the capital city, where the air is as thick, hot and unpleasant as warm sewage. It's a public holiday, so perhaps a little quieter than usual, which isn't really very quiet. We take a horrendous hotel room, which reeks of urine, has a colony of ...
