currency exchange advice


I am only going to be in Dhaka 48 hours on a group tour with many meals already covered. I would, however, like to have some money on hand for personal expenses and am wondering if one would get a better rate exchange at the airport, at the hotel, or at the Bank (Sat. or Sun. = probably closed). My own bank charges a huge fee to use an ATM overseas, so I'd rather not do that.

In Bangladesh, You will find banks closed on Fridays.

In most of the major areas in Dhaka you will get money exchange agents and you will get competitive rates with them rather than the airport and hotels.

Best is to ask the people at your hotel to direct you.
