Bangladesh isn’t a destination for everyone. It’s chaotic, dirty, loud and at times overwhelming. Be ready to embrace Bangladesh in all its quirkiness. As one of the poorest nations in the world, the lack of infrastructure and underdeveloped tourism industry will leave you frustrated if you’re trying to rush a visit here.
Bangladesh is a destination perfect for slowing down and enjoying the simple things in life. Take in the energy of the capital Dhaka first before heading to the country, the real gem of Bangladesh. Srimangal, the tea-growing capital was our favourite place in Bangladesh. If you visit during the right season (parts of Bangladesh get a lot of rain which causes flooding), head out to Chittagong and Sundarbans.
