Globe Trekker - Bangladesh with Holly Morris [52:29]
In Globe trekker Bangladesh we follow host Holly Morris on an adventure through one of the poorest and most populated countries on the planet. It's a tough but rewarding journey and contrary to expectations Holly discovers a country overflowing with life, culture and incredible hospitality. Her trip starts in Dhaka, the capitol of Bangladesh and the 7th largest city in the world. After a hectic few days dodging rickshaw and tasting the favorite local dish Byrani, she boards the Rocket Paddle Steamer, a relic from the days of the British Raj, and embarks on a 24 hour journey down river to one of the largest mangrove forests in the world, the Sunderban National Park. Risking an encounter with the man eating Bengal Tigers that live in the park Holly joins a group of local villagers on a trek deep into the forest to find honey. The search is a success, despite having to brave a swarm of giant killer bees, and after tasting the golden nectar she departs northward to one of the poorest regions of the country. Journeying mostly by river Holly discovers that Bangladesh consists largely of flood prone low lying flat lands and river deltas. During the wet season large portions of the country are submerged and the northern regions of the country are often the hardest hit. Holly explores some of the ingenious methods the locals have developed to cope with the challenges they face and visits a local "floating" school where she ends up giving the children there a lesson in American ...

Cox's Bazar sandy sea beach with tsunami like giant waves [02:47]
Cox's Bazar (Bengali: কক্সবাজার) is a town, a fishing port and district headquarters in Bangladesh. It is known for its wide sandy beach which is the world's longest natural sandy sea beach. It is an unbroken 125 km sandy sea beach with a gentle slope. It is located 150 km south of Chittagong. Cox's Bazar is also known by the name "Panowa", the literal translation of which means "yellow flower". Its other old name was "Palongkee". The modern Cox's Bazar derives its name from Captain Cox (died 1799), an officer serving in British India. In the 18th century, an officer of British East India Company, Captain Hiram Cox was appointed as the Superintendent of Palongkee outpost after Warren Hastings became the Governor of Bengal. Captain Cox was specially mobilised to deal with a century long conflict between Arakan refugees and local Rakhains. The Captain was a compassionate soul and the plight of the people touched his heart. He embarked upon the mammoth task of rehabilitating refugees in the area, and made significant progress. A premature death took Captain Cox in 1799 before he could finish his work. But the work he had done earned him a place in the hearts of the locals and to commemorate his role in rehabilitation work a market was established and named after him as Cox's Bazaar ("Cox's Market"). Although Cox's Bazar is one of the most visited tourist destinations in Bangladesh, it has yet to become a major international tourist destination, due to lack of publicity.

Even the art moves, paraded on the back of the city's sea of 600, 000-plus rickshaws, which throb with colour and restlessness even when gridlocked. It doesn't matter how many times you experience this city, the sensation of being utterly overwhelmed is always the same. Sights and experiences come at you so thick and fast that it would take a lifetime to know this mega-city's every mood.
