Experience the life and culture in the backwaters of Barisal, the southern division of Bangladesh. Awash with rivers and canals, Barisal is the heart of the Ganges Delta, the largest delta in the world, where traveling by boat is the way of life. Also, visit the historic mosques from the 15th century in the UNESCO World Heritage City Bagerhat. And spend a day exploring the life and sights of megacity Dhaka, the chaotic capital city of Bangladesh, one of the most densely populated cities in the world without any order. An express tour to visit the highlights of Dhaka, Barisal, and Bagerhat in a short time. Perfect if you are short on time and want to cover a lot of places.

On the Backwater and Bagerhat tour, you’ll start by exploring the life and sights of Dhaka City for a whole day and board a traditional ferry in the evening. The next day, explore the rivers, canals, floating markets, bazaars, and villages in Barisal to experience the unique lifestyle in the Ganges Delta. After that, explore the historical mosques and a beautiful temple in Bagerhat and return to Dhaka.

You can easily combine this tour with visiting India. Instead of returning to Dhaka, we can transfer you to the Benapole/Petrapole border to cross over to Kolkata, which is close to Khulna.
