Gulshan is situated about 6 miles (10 kilometers) north of Dhaka, the country's capital.
Visitors regularly use Gulshan as a springboard for other adventures. Bangladesh has many natural and cultural sights.
The best places for tourists to visit when they arrive in a new town are the ones that provide a window into the culture. Don't skip Bangladesh's art museums. When the weather is begging you spend the day outdoors, why not check out Bangladesh's open-air markets?.
If you want an escape from sightseeing, why not try the local watersports? Canoeing and fishing are available in the area.
To really get to know the area you are in, take the time to stop in at the region's bars, cafés and restaurants. Often, these are good places to rub shoulders with residents and try out common dishes. Lentils and also beef are popular ingredients here. Do as the locals do and order dal (lentils) or horioh maas (golden mustard fish curry). For the final course, you can also try goja (sweet). Try a akher rosh (sugar cane juice), an non-alcoholic drink that is very common in Bangladesh.
The handiest major airport, Zia International Airport, is located in Dhaka, 4 miles (6 kilometers) to the north of Gulshan, a handy point to remember when booking your vacation.
