Dhaka Markets, Bangladesh

Exploring Dhaka's markets can be a ferocious assault on the senses, with crowded lanes crammed with lamb slaughter specialists, live poultry traders and seafood merchants ...

... to trucks teeming with vegetables and endless rows of stalls hawking all manner of fruits and spices.

  2. You've certainly captured the very essence of what their wet markets are like...and the people peddling their wares...and their warmth and smiles too. Omg, are those blackish things they're selling...goat heads? >.<

    1. Contact.ewew: there are very few foreign visitors in the markets (none that i noticed, actually), so they're quite enthusiastic to greet anyone who's not local :) you're right - those are goat heads :D

  4. Amazing country - we vacationed there early last year. The moment we got out of the urban chaos of Dhaka, we found Bangladesh to be a verdant, green country. Picturesque sights at every turn. I'd go back again just for the food.

    1. Pete: you're right, the contrast between the city and the countryside is pretty stark - personally i preferred the villages, as dhaka just overwhelmed me after a few hours! :)
