Find the schedule of all the buses and trains to Gazipur from different areas of Dhaka here. And of course you can always come here by a private vehicle, which would be way more comfortable, not just because it is obvious, also the resorts and parks are pretty far from each other and some of them are very much in the inner part of the city. So a private car would surely help. You can move in the city by CNG, auto or rickshaw and there is no traffic jam.

Accommodation
Usually most people don’t stay there at night, but there are many hotels and they are really cheap. But if you are looking for a resort to spend the night there are plenty of those as well, but they are not that cheap and some are pretty costly. Cheapest hotels are Hotel Modern at Thana road, Hotel Dream Land at Konabari etc. They cost like 200-300tk/night. Most popular resorts are Nokkhotrobari, Dipali, Bhwal, Chuti, Dream Square etc.

Food
It is not that the city is known for any iconic dish, but recently the Niribili hotel in the Kapashiya area has become quite popular for some great dishes. The food in the resorts are very costly and before actually going to stay at one of those do not forget to call first and make a reservation and while doing so we suggest you to ask them about the food and their cost.
