A country that is a diverse and intriguing mix of culture, tradition and unforgettable beauty is an apt description of Bangladesh. Decorating the landscape and diverting attention away from the concrete jungles and bustling cities, visitors will find a world of sparkling rivers, breathtaking mountains and spectacular adventures waiting around every corner. Located in South Asia, Bangladesh has been fighting poverty and establishing economic stability since its independence in 1971. Even though it is known to be one of the most highly populated countries in the world, it is also home to fertile plains, magnificent wildlife and an extraordinary history that captivates the imagination through the buildings and monuments that remind present and future generations of its unique heritage. Its topical, mild winters and humid summers make Bangladesh a destination that can be visited all year round.
Compared to most other countries, Bangladesh can be described as having a limited selection of airports. None-the-less, flying to Bangladesh and between cities is a popular means of travel in the country and airports can be found in destinations such as Barisal, Chittagong, Comilla, Cox’s Bazaar, Dhaka, Ishurdi, Jessore, Rajshahi, Saidpur, Shamshernagar and Sylhet. Traveling by bus or vehicle is a preferred method of travel by many locals, but as the majority of roads are not paved, road travel can become daunting for travelers who are unfamiliar with the country. With the railway consisting of 2,768 kilometers of tracks, a train ride can be fascinating.
Bangladesh has more than 8,000km of navigable waterways and boarding a boat along a river is a quintessential Bangladesh experience. The most famous boat trip is aboard the old paddle-wheel cruiser known as The Rocket - Dhaka to Khulna is popular- and of course your Sundarbans tiger trip will be by boat. But there are plenty of other, lesser-known trips you can take in pretty much any corner of the country. Even if you're not going anywhere in particular, you can just rock up at most river ghats and negotiate a fare with a boat-hand for a one-hour tour of the river. You'll have to have your best miming skills at the ready because it's very unlikely your boat-hand will speak any English...but it all adds to the adventure.
Most people have a somewhat disparaging image of Bangladesh in their minds – a country that has been devastated by cyclones and floods or one which has been ravaged by poverty and suffers from a lack of development. While it may be true that some of these factors have made news headlines in the past, the truth is that Bangladesh simply cannot be so easily stereotyped.
With large tracts of arable land, even more untamed jungle and bustling cities, Bangladesh is a destination with a difference. There are many destinations in Bangladesh worth seeing.You may choose to visit some of the many archaeological sites - some of which date back well over 2000 years. Or, if you are a nature lover, you may want to visit the largest mangrove forest in the world. Bangladesh is filled with palaces, beaches, forests and cities. True, the country may have a few problems, but which country doesn't? A visit to Bangladesh may surpass your every expectation and leave you with many wonderful memories. The only way you can truly know how much you will enjoy the country is to visit it for yourself. One of the best places to start your travels is in Dhaka. A fairly large city characterized by skyscrapers and suburbia, Dhaka is Bangladesh's largest city. Dhaka is also known as ‘the City of Mosques and Muslin, so you can be sure there is plenty of sightseeing to be done. Whether your interest lies in the old city or the new, you will likely enjoy touring this stunning city. Other cities definitely worth seeing are Chittagong and Khulna. Every wildlife lover should visit the Sundarbans just outside of the Khulna city limits. Not only is this wilderness area largely untouched by human hands, but the accommodation in the area is sublime and well priced. We have the longest beach in the world name Cox's bazaar. The place is one of the best tourist attractions for decades. People from all over the world come to spend summer and winter here. All facilities are available along with very premium hotels and resorts to make you feel good. Bangladesh is good for trekking as well. Bandarban, Khagrachari have some beautiful mountains which are good for trekking and climbing. Boga lake and Sajek valley is very popular in Chittagong hill tracts.
So, visit one of these lovely destinations in Bangladesh on your very next holiday and open your eyes and mind to a land of culture, heritage, religion and wildlife. You can be sure that it will be quite unlike anything you've ever tried before.
