Dhaka being a concrete jungle, does not really have much of a natural retreat or staycation options. That is especially true for newlyweds looking to get away from all the noise and traffic of the city and spend some quality time with each other. Though such options might be scarce in the city centre, if one opts for just an hour's drive away from the city, there are beautiful honeymoon resorts and hotels set in nature. Here are our top 10 picks among them.
