» » » » » Rajshahi ( রাজশাহী ). A voyage to Rajshahi, Bangladesh - Asia.


Built on the northern bank of the Padma River, Rajshahi is a frantic and fun university town with enough colour and attractions to entertain for a few days. It also makes an excellent base from which to dig through the layers of history in Gaud, Puthia and Natore.
The river bank by the Padma River affords one of the best river views in the country and, in the late afternoon, a carnival-like atmosphere pervades with people strolling and chatting, children playing and vendors selling ice cream and other snack food.Looking across the vast flood plain to the opposite bank you’ll see India, where the river is called the Ganges. In the dry season it is sometimes possible to walk across the river bed, which aids the thriving smuggling trade along the border. The local trade in smuggled goods is most evident in Saheb Bazar.
