Bangladesh: FCO warns of travel disruption

The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office says Bishwa Ijtema, the world’s second largest congregation of Muslims, will be held between January 19 and 21 beside the Turag River in Tongi (about 3km north of Dhaka).

Temporary disruption to daily life in and around Dhaka may occur.

Anyone travelling through Dhaka International airport during this time should allow extra time for their journey due to heavy traffic and extra security measures.
