Of the 150 cities covered in the study by UK-based dry-cleaning and laundry service Zipjet, Dhaka ranks 144.

Dhaka falls behind Karachi and New Delhi, both among the most stressful cities.
Baghdad was the worst, followed by Kabul, Lagos, Dakar, Cairo and Tehran.
The survey studied 500 locations based on data tied to 17 categories covering infrastructure, pollution levels, finance and citizens' wellbeing.
Dhaka is the worst city in terms of density and 16 in traffic congestion. In air pollution, it ranks nine.
Besides, the city was the second worst city in physical health and family purchasing power, an indicator of a city's financial health. A high family purchasing power indicates balance between average household salaries and the cost of living.
