How's Bangladesh as a tourist place?

Have you been to Bangladesh? What places are there for tourists to visit?


Country: Bangladesh


Bangladesh could easily be on your first choice if you are looking for a splurge to budget vacation. There are islands, mountain ranges, mangrove forests, world heritage spots, archeological spots, and in the city you can have site seeing tours, you can take a stroll in the middle of buzzing traffic of Dhaka day and night.

If you are looking for night life, you can have dinner plus concerts of local bands @ less than $15, what can Dhaka offer more is its older part of the city with Mughal establishments, Dhaka University building can give you the aroma of British Colonial architecture.

I left out Cox's Bazar for a roaring longest unbroken beach.

You are welcome to my country.
Bangladesh is a country rich in natural beauty. It's a land with diverse landscape- from hilly mountains to plain land and sea. It's a very green country with land after land of agricultural fields.

I must also include about the interesting things you would experience in Chittagong. It is the Port City and the second largest city of Bangladesh. Although pollution is a major part of city life in Bangladesh, Chittagong is far much better than Dhaka. It still has the existence of greenery in the city life, and there is a World War II cemetery- a very peaceful place.

You could also enjoy the view of the beach near the airport, and the local people are very friendly, wherever you go in Bangladesh.

To know more about Bangladesh -

I have a personal blog on pictures I have taken all around Bangladesh. Though I don't update it much, it has a good collection of pictures-if you want you could peep in -

I would be glad to welcome you to the scenic beauty of Bangladesh.
Dear Charlotte,
before I answer your question, I should have asked you where are you from and where have you been so far so that I can give you a comparison between the cities and any rate, if you like to explore different people, and different culture, perhaps a bit of adventure in the mangrove forest as well as the tail of himalaya and needless to say the longest unbroken beach in the world then your next destination would be right here in Bangladesh. Keep in mind this is a developing nation so do not expect that much in term of luxury, however there are few places where you can indulge yourself with the updated modern luxury...i.e. 5 star hotel with sauna, msg, golf, day tour in the city and so on.....the city (dhaka) is over populated and dirty, but yet it has lot to offer...come and see it for yourself...should you need to learn more about the city or the country you can browse through the internet or you can contact me or 88-01915153605...
Bangladesh will be the best selection for you with minimum budget. As this country has the world's longest beach Cox's bazar , it has the 2nd beach place from where you can see sun rise and sun set both . Bangaldesh has the largest mangrove forest where you can see live Royal Bengal tiger, It has the hilly and mountain cities where you can enjoy the tribe people's life.
You can have a nice experience of ling drive in the northern country side where you will smell of the real life.
In Dhaka city ofcourse you will have a good night life .
SO think about this and let me know...
Take care
I think you already know that Cox'sbazar and Sunderban still keep their position in recent top seven list of 'Seven Wounders Of World". So from this perspective you can easily understand what kind of tourist place bangladesh is. Besides this Bangladesh is very friendly to tourist. We always respect tourist. The living cost is lower than other's.

I have been here for my childhood and i accustomed to live here peacely.

Chittagong's Foyce lake is a natural gift from God. It will give you the view of british architecture also. Kuakata's simultaniously sun rising and sunsetting scenery is the only one wounder of world. And also Potenga will give you a very different view from others that you can't find in other countries. If you think about these things then Bangladesh will be your lone choice.
Bangladesh is a wonderful place for tourists. Local travel and good accommodation and food is cheap, English is widely spoken, foreigners are generally admired and treated with respect, most tourist areas have good security. There are thousands of interesting places to visit in Bangladesh but the following are my favorite:
1. Cox Bazar - Beach combing on the world's longest unbroken beach.
2. St. Martin Island - Great Scuba diving and Snorkeling.
3. Sundarban - Luxury live-aboard boat trips deep into the world's largest mangrove forest and home to the Royal Bengal Tiger. Excellent wild life spotting right from the comfort of your boat: Tiger, Deer, Dolphins, Crocodiles, Monkeys, Eagles, Lizards, etc.
4. Bandarban - Drive up to Chimbuk hilltop or swim in the beautiful Meghla Lake in the hill tracts.
5. Moyna Mati - Ancient archeological site only an hours drive from the capital.
6. Chandpur - Leisurely day long boat ride with picnics on sandy islands along the way.
7. Barishal - Luxury trip on old colonial era steamers.
8. Anwara - Dirt biking along the sand banks of the Karnaphuli river.
Please come to Bangladesh and enjoy all this and much more.
If you need to know more please send me an email.

Dear Charlotte,

Bangladesh is a tourist FRIENDLY country. The hospitality of local people will comfort you definitely. And you will love this country for the simplicity of her people...

You are most welcome to Bangladesh.

The sites you can visit;
1.) The Sundarbans (The largest Mangrove Forest in the world)
2.) Chittagong Hill tracts
3.) Many Historical Places
** I believe you will enjoy the Villages (country side), the warm hospitality of the villagers and their company. But you will require a guide or a local friend.

Hills, lakes, river, forests, beaches can be found in many places but the people of Bangladesh and their simplicity is unique and can be found only in Bangladesh.

So Visit Bangladesh....

Thanks & Regards
It's a wonderful place to travel for a casual traveller who is especially interested in village like scenic beautiful places. Also we have the natural longest sea beach and a great mangrove.
Ya, I m. Bangladesh is a place of natural beauty.There r so many places for tourists to visit.The longest sea beach is here at "Coxs Bazar". The largest mangrove forest "Shundorban" is in Bangladesh. And the amazing sea beach at "Kuakata", where u can see sun rise & sun set. Most of all, Bangladeshi people are very friendly, generous and natural.Their lifestyle didn't change a lot with the time & technology.

Bangladesh is a land of river.The big river r Padma, Meghna, Jamuna & Bramaputra.U could sail to anywhere from the capital "Dhaka".Bangladesh is shopper's heaven. South asian biggest shopping mall "Boshundhora city" is in the capital city. Asia's biggest shopping mall "Jamuna future park" will be open very soon. So, why do u waiting for! Come, lets take a tour at Bangladesh.& Inform me, while u r visiting. May be, I could join u.

Travelling through Bangladesh is cheap. The climate in Bangladesh is tropical.

Whether its at the beautiful and serene beaches of places like Coxs' Bazaar that stretch on forever, or a boat journey through the winding, curving backwaters of a Bangladeshi river, with its ancient towns and villages some dating back more than 2000 years, and past maharajas palaces of the previous centuries . It'll be an experience that will undoubtably find a place which will provide you with the unforgetable trip of a lifetime.

Hi Charlotte,
Before knowing you about the beauty or tourist place of Bangladesh, It would have been better if I could know about your interest. Not being as Bangladeshi it is likely seems to all visitors whom I have met in here or in abroad that the country has a natural beauty. And the country has Six seasons. This is a country of river. Here you can take a taste of Sea, Mountain, Forest, Wetlands, Night life, Boat trip in the river, Rickshaw tour etc. etc. etc.
You may heard already through website or through others means about the beach of Cox’s Bazar and the Kuakata as well as the mangrove forest Sundarban. Cox’s Bazar beach is the longest unbroken beach and the Speciality of Kuakata is where you can enjoy the Sun rise & Sunset together at the same place. And the Sundarban is deep man grove forest where you can see the Royal Bangal Tiger. Both the place is selected in the top 7 chart of Natural Beauty.
Also you can take a city tour in many cities where you will have the opportunity to see Castle, ford, museum, zoo, park, cemetery, guest birds many more.
You can learn about the tribal life style and enjoy their cultural programme. You can see the Handloom cloth and Pottery making by the villagers as well as Nakshi Katha. You can see the Tea garden and tea processing.
Also if you want to know more about Bangladesh you can stay with a local family. It will help you to learn more about the Bangladeshi culture.
If you are not like a traditional tourist OR if you treat your trip as study tour, you can join in a work camp where you can get the opportunity to meet local people, shear the ideas and views, and take the opportunity to see the Bangladeshi life style closely.
Bangladeshi Food is spicy but very tasty.
People of Bangladesh are very friendly by culture and nature. Cost is very very reasonable. Normally you and your belongings are safe but still I would suggest you to take care on your own.
Many many things are missing. Hope if you plan to come I hope the trip will worth while. If you let me know where are you from in that case I might give a contact of your own country who have visited already Bangladesh with whom you can shear more details about Bangladesh.
My contact address is:
Its all aspects
