Bangladesh for beginners tours.

Must read

Bangladesh is known to be poor and prone to flooding. It doesn’t feel like a tourist destination, and a trip here is certainly off the beaten path. But if you’re ready to leave the comforts of your home and step outside to explore, this beautiful, green, wonderfully welcoming country is one of the most enchanting places you’ve ever visited.

River trips

Bangladesh has more than 8,000km of navigable waterways and boarding a boat along a river is a quintessential Bangladesh experience. 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.

Royal Bengal Tiger

The Sundarbans National Park is the world’s largest mangrove swamp and 60% of it lies in Bangladesh (the rest is in neighboring India). Extremely difficult to access, this region is home to the largest single population of tigers found anywhere in the world.

Tea estates

Predominantly agricultural, Bangladesh is rural bliss for many travelers and wherever you go you’ll enjoy vistas that are beautifully lush and wonderfully green. Nowhere is this more the case than in the gentle hills of the northeast.

Hiking withinside the Chittagong Hills

Of course, much of Bangladesh is flat as a pancake, but few people realize that there are mountains here higher than in Scotland. The Chittagong Hill Tracts in the southeastern part of the country is hilly and forested and home to many Bangladeshi tribal groups. A tumultuous history of local turmoil means authorities are reluctant to let tourists explore the area. You must first obtain a permit for the area, and often require at least a guide, if not a police escort.
