Barisal, the southern region of Bangladesh, is awash with rivers and canals, part of the Ganges Delta. Hundreds of them flow through this region, and the result is a deliciously lush landscape with more shades of green than you ever imagined. Traveling by boat is the way of life here. In Barisal Backwaters Tour, we’ll take you to explore life in the heart of the Ganges Delta, which will be a unique experience.
Starting with visiting some backstreets and bazaars full of activities in New and Old Dhaka for a whole day, you’ll take an overnight ferry to Barisal and explore its numerous canals and rivers for the next two days on a small country boat. Here you’ll visit different floating markets of rice, rice paddy, guava, timber, and vegetables. Go overland and visit various bazaars, schools, brick kilns, and villages and interact with the locals, and return to Dhaka on the third day.
Barisal is a region where people have hardly ever seen a foreigner. We’ll take you to explore some remote areas in this region beyond the reach of the guide books, where you’ll receive a genuine welcome from the locals and experience their authentic life – an experience you can’t have in most parts of the world. This is a highly photogenic tour for anyone keen on photographing the life of people and their lifestyles.
