How to make friends in Bangladesh

We have been talking about loneliness when you are abroad, let's now talk about how to make friends (locals and other expats) when you're living in Bangladesh :top:

Which are your best tips to meet people and to make friends in Bangladesh??

Thanks in advance for your participation

Bangladeshi people are so much friendly and hospitable.But you must be remember that there is good or bad people everywere in the world.So Bangladesh is not out of these.You must be careful in public place.U can intimate any job holder or student.Actually I mean who have specific identity.

I have heard that Bangladeshis are very friendly people.  But some people also advised that it may be difficult for Indians to work in Bangladesh.  How true is this....?

Yah Bangladeshi people is really so much friendly.But it is not true that Indian people could not work here.Bangladeshi people spent more time for gossiping with family,friends.collegues etc.

Hi everyone, i am settled in Bangladesh since 2 yrs now. Just found one thing that the social life is bit boring then the other countries. Rest the hospitlity, security is wonderful......

hi im settled in bangladesh 1 years only but i couldn't ajust at all expeciallay i was so active lady in my country and as Chtfdt said is very boaring i feel same so before any one come here to live here think 1000000000 times it's hard and boaring

hey lamissa, gud evening, hope u r doing fine. may i know if u r living alone in Dhaka? in that case u will feel lonely..but if u go to expat clubs and attend different functions in those star hotels...u may find it useful to get out of loneliness...wish u hav wobderful leisure time..take care..

yes it's kind of dry here...no drink anywhere:(

uh! the stare factor here is humongous...do you get that as well?...I'm trying to ignore just so I can avoid becoming a recluse...gonna try wearing a bag on my head!

would like to make friends though....x

The way you guys are discussing here, it looks like the thread is not about "How to make friends in Bangladesh" rather it is about "Worst things in Bangladesh"! :|

Regarding alcohol, yes it is obvious that you wont find alcohol and night life in Bangladesh as much as you find in other countries, because it is a Muslim  country, and i think you knew that before coming here :)

You can find alcohol in many places though, may be you already know where you can find alcohol. In case you don't know, i am copying someone's post: "it can be found in warehouses (the one near the Mohakhali flyover is called H Kabir Warehouse), the 4 or 5 star hotels (where it is ridiculously expensive), most of the clubs (British, American, German, International- all of which are located in the Gulshan and Baridhara areas) among a few licensed bars. The price is comparatively cheap in the warehouses and you can get spirits like whiskey, vodka,gin and beers like fosters, heineken, carlsberg...the common ones."

Regarding the original post about making friends in Bangladesh, if you want to make friendship with expats only(!), you can go to the clubs mentioned above. If you want to make friendship with locals, you dont have to go anywhere, just say hi to someone randomly and start talking..... Bangladeshi people will be more than happy to be friends with you. If someone doesn't want to talk to you, the only reason would be that s/he cant speak English.
