Badda, Dhaka

A small yet growing neighborhood in northeast Dhaka, Badda has around 200,000 people. With its 9 suburbs and connection to other thanas, such as Gulshan, Baridhara, and Rampura, it is a popular residential area offering all the modern amenities of life.
According to the Badda area guide, as a part of Dhaka North City Corporation, Badda is an area of 16.78 square kilometers or 6.48 square miles. It is further divided into North Badda and South Badda. North Badda represents the hustling of life with its offices in the Pragati Sarani area, whereas South Badda is a residential place with areas like Aftabnagar and Banasree. Both parts complement each other, making Badda a place for business and residence altogether.
Public transportation is highly convenient in Badda. First, the Hatirjheel Circular Bus Service offers transportation on many routes in Dhaka. Rickshaws are always available for small distances. Plus, local bus services will take you anywhere in the central regions of the capital.
Besides, the Hatirjheel Water Taxi Service linking to the Gulshan Lake is a unique and affordable yet entertaining transportation for the area’s people. Within a few years, visiting Badda will be even easier upon the completion of the Dhaka Metro Rail project’s Airport Rail Link or MRT Line - 1.
