For most travellers, money withdrawn via bank debit card is the easiest and most convenient way to get cash, as there are now ATMs in almost every major city of Bangladesh (this includes all the divisional capitals and most of the third-tier cities listed in this guide but not all, so do check ahead as there are some notable exceptions among the tourist destinations, like Srimongol or the Chittagong Hill Tracts). US dollars in cash is the next easiest option, although carrying large amounts of cash around, say US$500 or more, is discouraged. There are only facilities to change travellers’ cheques in Dhaka and Chittagong (HSBC is best) and in this case it is best to stick with US dollars. If you’re really in a pinch, HSBC or Standard Chartered ATMs will be able to advance Tk20,000 against a credit card, perhaps more at a teller, but the machine will help you avoid long queues at the bank.
