Looking for a local tour guide to show me around Dhaka, Bangladesh
August 8, 2011 10:02 PM Subscribe
I am in Dhaka, Bangladesh for a few weeks visiting my girlfriend who is doing research on water and sanitation. While she is busy at work, I was hoping to do some exploration. She's asking around, but most of the people she works with are public-health professionals from out of the country, or Bangladeshis who are already too busy to deal with some non-desi like me.
Given my lack of Bangla language abilities compounded by my overwhelming whiteness (6'3", blonde hair, blue eyes) I was hoping to find a guide to show me around some of the less touristed areas.
Does the wondrous community of AskMeFi have any suggestions? Or, know any locals who might be up for the job? I don't have a ton of resources (read: $$$), but a little seems to go a long way here.
AskMeFi, Help me get my adventure on in Dhaka!
