hi all,

My husband is being transferred to Dhaka in December 2014. My 4 year old son and I will be coming along. I'm a bit concerned/ curious about moving here from Mumbai, India, (even though I'm sure Dhaka is not much different from Mumbai in terms of its population and living conditions).

I have a few questions and would be eternally grateful for some answers!

school : could someone recommend a good international school for my son

residential areas + rental:
what is a safe, good, centrally located residential area to live in? With a park nearby where my son can play and a hospital not too far.
What is the going rental rate for an unfurnished 3bhk ?

water and electricity:
is it true that there are 3 hour power cuts on a daily basis or is it a myth?
is water shortage common?

healthcare:
does the city have good healthcare?
does anyone have any recommendations for a good Pediatrician and general physician/ family doctor.

please do write in with pros and cons! I find it always helps to be fully-equipped :)

thanks!

Good Choice, Dhaka is good and not polluted like India, in India people lives in slum and not have own bathroom.

I am writing to you regarding a study I am conducting and I am trying to find expatriates who are working in Bangladesh as my participants.

The findings from the study would inform policy makers and human resource department in MNCs. For instance, knowing expatriates' expectations and concerns for working in Bangladesh would put organizations ahead in developing policies and practices that can help secure talented expatriates vital for upgrading skills and contributing to the thriving economy in Bangladesh.

If you are and expat and if you know any expats who are working in Bangladesh, i would really appreciate if you could share their contact with me and i will liaise with them directly. If you can please share this around too

thank you and hope to hear from you

I would like to add that commuting in Bangladesh is not very difficult but if you are planning to buybrand new car in Bangladeshthan I would suggest the Tata Motors sedan cars.
