This is for the Indian and Bangladeshi members on this forum-
Starting Dec 1, I will be travelling to India and Bangladesh as part of an official project.
I will be in India for approximately 3 months and will be stationed in New Delhi, with some travel to Mumbai, Kolkatta and Bangalore.
Immediately thereafter i will be going to Bangladesh for about 4 weeks (exact duration undecided as of now) and will be based in Dhakka.
Its been a while since i visited India, so can the Indian members here give some pointers on intersting things to do in one's spare time. I am not too keen on the historical tours since i have done them in my previous visits, am more keen to see the "new India"- so any help on places to go, things to see etc (eg- I love art, theater and tennis). any possibility of visiting a defence establishment? would love to see some Indian aircraft, esp the much talked about SU30 MKI (i know this is asking for too much, but you never know
while in Dhakka, what do the Bangladeshi members recommend- stuff on similar lines as above, though i would not mind a historical tour as well.
Oh, yes - a bit of advice on the day to day security scene as well in both countries please. I have a fair idea about the pros and cons of big indian cities, but things change so just want to be sure.
How about dhaka? how safe is it for a female foreigner to roam about on weekends?
thanks in advance....
