While Bangladesh may not be heavily developed in terms of hotels, shops and conveniences, it still has lots to offer. Most of the attractions here have to do with the incredible natural beauty of the country and its ancient history and culture.
For the most part, Bangladesh is still relatively unexplored. It retains enormous natural wealth and beauty. The country is dotted with rivers, lakes and perpetually green hills. Here and there you will find yourself in the midst of a lush tropical rain forest or perhaps in amongst tea plantations as you visit one of the many green tea gardens. Bangladesh is also home to the world’s largest mangrove forest, which has been declared a World Heritage Site. These are just some of the amazing natural scenes that greet your eyes while traveling the country. When you look out across the hills and valleys, it is as if you are looking at an artists’ canvas – a view so stunning that it seems possible that it existed only in the painter’s imagination.
But that is not where the wealth of the country ends. Home of the Royal Bengal Tiger – an endangered species – Bangladesh will offer you an unparalleled opportunity to see these exquisite creatures in their natural habitat. You can enjoy the warbling of birds as you don your binoculars to spot the different bird species, or you can take to the coast and visit the world’s longest natural coastal beach – a great place to spend time sunning yourself in a country that has an abundance of sunshine. If cultural attractions are more interesting to you, you can visit the relics of ancient Buddhist civilizations and enjoy meeting colorful, friendly native tribes.
Perhaps one of the most remarkable things about traveling around Bangladesh is the fact that you are not merely a spectator simply breezing through the country on a whirlwind, commercially-styled trip. Here you will learn amazing things about the people first hand. You will have the opportunity to communicate with the people and to spend time amongst nature truly enjoying the delights it has to offer. Bangladesh is more than just a holiday – it’s a destination.
