Tmac.......Dhaka Sheraton is Awesome. I love it. If you look around some of the Dhaka highrises, seems like good amout of construction still going on & couple of more highrises are still going up. Incredible. In couple of pictures, Dhaka seems to have more highrises in cluster than even Karachi. I know both are financial capitals of their respected counties but I never thought I will give Dhaka a slight edge over Karachi.

Tmac......can you post upcoming highrise list of Dhaka. I'm sure there is lot more than this.

BTW you are doing a great job representing Bangladesh here. Keep it up.

Hindustani

Hindustani, thank you very much for the compliment. You are right..Dhaka has about few hundred buildings under construction right now. In this I only posted pictures of individual buildings, later I will be posting pictures of Dhaka skyline...clusters of buildings. It has a pretty nice skyline for a south asian country. I know many people have been surprised after seeing the pics. Dhaka is a modern city with modern structures. It's not as poor as it may seem from the outside. There are so many modern GLASS buildings in Dhaka, it's incredible. Stay tuned...

ps. SUNCITY had mentioned earlier in this forum that he thinks Dhaka is second only to Mumbai in terms of modern architecture in that region.

If I am not mistaken, then Dhaka is the only city in South Asia, where they have a hand-rickshaw pullers union. It's startling - they have more than 4 million rickshaws on the streets of that city. Actually rickshaws are more handy than proper vehicles in a city which is prone to flooding!

there are no hand-rickshaws in Bangladesh. They are the tri-cycle type. The rickshaws cannot ply on major streets in Dhaka. They have been banning rickshaws slowly from all the major streets in Dhaka. By 2008, rickshaws are going to be phased out of Dhaka.

I think Kolkata is the only city in South Asia with hand pulled rickshaws and unions. Long plans to ban them have met with stiff resistance from mentally backward social activists who have their priorities and concepts of modern world economy wrong. And the fatcats (in cash and weight) of Burrabazar are the ones who patronize these rickshaws because they want to save 50 paise.
