Visit Bangladesh

Introduction

Often quickly dismissed, Bangladesh actually represents a world of possibilities for the adventurous traveller. Ravaged by natural disasters and flooding, the country is frequently portrayed as being down and out. Look past the news headlines however and a vibrant and fascinating destination awaits.

The historic capital Dhaka sits on Buriganga River, which connects it to all the major inland ports; take a river cruise to see all sides of the city. Otherwise, explore the unfinished seventeenth century Lalbagh Fort, the exquisite Ahsan Manzil Palace Museum and the dilapidated Chotta Katra. There are dozens of mosques but Kashaitully is arguably the most beautiful.

Chittagong is Bangladesh's second city. Set amidst charming natural surroundings, it's home to a diverse blend of people descended from the many traders and settlers.

Head to the Sundarbans National Park, set in the largest littoral mangrove belt in the world to see a wide selection of wildlife, including deer, crocodiles, river dolphins and Bengal tigers. Alternatively visit the Lowacherra National Park to hear gibbons.

Escape the beaten-track by travelling to Rajshahi in the north-west of the country to see a number of archaeological sites; Paharpur is home to the best of these, including the Buddhist monastery of Somapuri Vihara and the Satyapir Vita Temple.
