Sightseeing in Bangladesh?

Hi,Which are the best places to visit in Bangladesh? I'm going to take a holiday there. Have you visited Bangladesh? Can you give a rough itinerary of best tourist attractions for a 5-6 days visit/


Country: Bangladesh


6 days, hmmm, here's a plan that you might love:

1 night's bus journey to Bandarban, a whole day up on the Neelgiri [in Bandarban, one of the hill districts of BD] the highest point of Bangladesh that you can reach by 4WDs. Clouds will touch you and you can spend a night over there in the perfect wilderness.

The next day you can leave for Cox's Bazar, the longest unbroken sea beach of the world. Swim a little, watch the sunset, take a beach ride and stay the night and then you can take a trip to Teknaf [Southern tip of BD] and leave for the fascinating coral island St. Martins and stay over for that day and night undisturbed.

Leave for Teknaf the next day and without a stopover at Cox's Bazar you can take up a flight to Dhaka, 45 minutes and you can plan it to connect to your flight back home or your next destination.

You would still have some time left to see the University of Dhaka, the melting pot of student revolutions, watch the *Shahid Minar* built on the memory of the valiant souls who gave their life away for Bangla Language, for which the International Language Day is on 21st February. You can watch the British colonial architecture The Curzon Hall, and hope that would cover your whole 6 days.

Total Package: $1500

Bangladesh got lots of attractive places to visit. As you will stay only for 5 to 6 days, it would be convenient to travel any one from the following place including

1. Cox's Bazar, the beach and hilly area both in together and it,s perfect for 4 days trip. travel cost- Min- USD 200 to Max USD 400.

Location Details: It is located at a distance of 152 km. to the south of Chittagong, Cox's Bazar is the tourist capital of Bangladesh. Having the world's longest unbroken (120 km.) beach sloping gently down to the blue waters of the Bay of Bengal against the picturesque background of a chain of hill covered with deep green forests, Cox's Bazar is one of the most attractive tourist spots in the world. Miles of golden sands, towering cliffs surfing waves, rare conch shells, colorful pagodas, Buddhist temples and tribes, delightful seafood - these are specialties of Cox's Bazar.

2. Srimongol,is where the tea-estates are here in Bangladesh, in the Sylhet region, east of the country, very close to the Indian border. Got Best place for 2/3 days trip and you would never feel bore. Max cost is USD 200.

3. Sundarbans, the forest. Best for 6 days trip. Max cost- USD 200.

Location Details: Located at about 320km. West of Dhaka. Here in the south, spread over an area of about 6000 sq. km. of delta swamps along the coastal belt of Khulna is the biggest mangrove forest, Sundarbans (beautiful forest) - the home of the Royal Bengal Tiger. These dense mangrove forests are criss-crossed by a network of rivers and creeks. One find here tides flowing in two directions in the same creek and often tigers swimming across a river or huge crocodiles basking in the sun. Other wildlife in this region is cheetahs, spotted deer, monkeys, pythons, wild bears and hyenas.

I am from Bangladesh and have visited all over here. If you want, I might able to help you making ur travel plan b4 your arrival in Bangladesh.

Thank you.
If you take domestic flights then you can cover quite a lot since 6 days are still too short to get the whole picture of the country. Visiting the Sundarbans (largest mangrove forest shared with India) could use up all of your time and you would have to have more time to see other things.

At first you may go to, "Sundarban tour" Please visit my profile to more about Sundarban.

Then Your journey will be to Chittagong. The Foyez Lake tour. There is a big and beautiful lake and for passing night there is also have many kind of nice resorts are available.

Then you may go to Cox's Bazar. The largest sea beach in the world.
Next journey is Saint martin tour. This is a adventurous journey.

(For more details about Cox's Bazar n Saint martin please visit my profile.)

Special package are available.
Package price- $ 1250 / per person.
If u want to see the best travelling spot in Bangladesh u must go to Coxs Bazar then Inani beach then Saint martins........... U should go Bandar ban....... the hilly are beside coxbazaar....... tht is supeb........
On a 5-6 day trip, I would recommend going to Chittagong first. You can visit the war cemetery, Foy's Lake area, Patenga beach, Chittagong University, etc.,
The next day you can head for Bandarban for two days (watch the sunset from Chimbuk Hill and visit the Meghla lake next day)
From Bandarban you can drive on to Cox Bazar for another couple of days on the beach. On the way back to the capital, you can visit the Moynamati archeological site and museum in Comilla.
Upon returning to Dhaka, you can visit the Lalbacgh fort or the Ahsan Manzil (the Nawab's palace) or just spend a leisurely day of boating on the river.
Actually when you are planing to visit Bangladesh that is very important to make an itinerary.
You can visit largest mangrove forest SUNDARBAN which will take min 4 days three nights. But you will not enjoy this during rainy season which will started from Mid April to Mid August.
You can visit Hill Tracks where you will find lovely views of hills and lands with tropical forest.
You can visit Cox's bazar which is the largest sea beach in the world.
You can visit another Beach KUAGATA from where you can see sun rise and sun set both together which is a rare view from same place.
What else you need...You may have night life in city and may have good experience of hospitality.
Most important is travel cost which the cheapest one in the world.
In our country Many attractive place for visit, like cox'bazar, sunderbon, japlong, faeslec etc. Truly I want to call u that, I'm Bangladesi but I visit some of place, most place are unable to visit by mine. If you will come in Bangladesh I will give you sagesion to fairly visit my country. take care...all the best....

Welcome to Bangladesh! There are definitly few places to visit in Bangladesh. These are Cox's Bazar (sea beach, south of Bangladesh and it takes 10 hours from Dhaka by coach), Saint Martin (it's 14 kilometers tiny coral island and it takes 3 hours from Cox's Bazar by cruise. but cruises usually don't operate after april ), Kuakata (another sea beach where you can see sun rise and sun set), the most important thing is we have a long rainy season which starts from mid april until mid september. Things are different in monsoon. We have a short winter which starts from november until february. The Sundarbans is one of the important tourist destinations (mangrove forest, south of Bangladesh, in the district of Patuakhali, takes 12 hours to get there from Dhaka).
