Dhaka is a sad place. I had an opportunity to travel Asian countries. And my first impression when I got to Dhaka is… dirty. I understand that Dhaka is very poor country and the sanitation quality in poor country tend to be low because people are just busy to survive. But in Dhaka, it is not just that. It almost seem to be a part of culture. You visit a wealthy family’s house in Dhaka and inside house looks very clean. Then once you step outside, you see full of garbage on the street. They seems not to care about public street.
For example, when I was in vietnam and I was at the poor area of Vietnam. But the streets are much much cleaner. I heard that if you go to Bangladesh/India community in the USA, the streets tend to be really dirty, also. So, I think it may be really a part of culture.
And also it is very sad that the Dhaka has the largest slum.over 5 years ago
