Araihazar is an Upazila in Narayanganj district in Bangladesh. Only 1.30-2.00 hours journey from Dhaka. Everything you want is here. Huge plum / cool garden, date orchard, rural metho path, 125-year-old school, 105-year-old zamindar house, 10/12 chars near the Meghna river. The fun of each char is different, you will get khirai, melon, sweet pumpkin, round potato, sweet potato, onion, watermelon at different times. In the middle of the most interesting river is the 2.10 km long Chauddar Char which has a beach like Kuakata on one side, sand on the other side, soft grass in the middle, several big holes in the grass where you can never forget to lie on the grass. Each hole can seat 10/12 people. Next to it, there is a large area of cough flowers. And what can I say about water, I can’t remember when I last saw such clear blue water near Dhaka.
You can’t stay without seeing the water. No matter how hard you try, the water will not become muddy. In this pasture, you will find eagles, white deer, pankauri, mud stings, and many other species of birds. You will also find a few snails/oysters. The real fun is getting around in the trawler. As you walk around, you will see the way of life of the people along the river, the fishermen are fishing, hundreds of ships are running along the side all day long, suddenly the royal ducks will come down from the side, the flock of native ducks, various species of birds are flying. An amazing scene that will make your mind forget. You have to go back again and again. There is also a stone wharf left by the river, a ferry wharf next to it, you will see the view of the ferry running if you want you can reserve a speed boat and go around the river.

The rainy season
Freshwater, hard sand beach during the rainy season. Those who are going do not get down from the water for 3/4 hours. Next to it is soft grass like velvet, with 2.5 km of cough forest.
