Frequestly Asked Questions about Bangladesh

Where is Bangladesh?

Bangladesh is a beautiful country in south Asia bordering with India and Myanmar. It is surrounded by India in three sides and the Bay of Bengal in the south.

What are the main attractions?

Bangladesh has 3 UNESCO world heritage sites: Sundarbans – the largest mangrove swamp on earth, home of the last Bengal tigers; Sompur Mahabihar – the second largest Buddhist monastery south of Himalayas from 8th century; and Bagerhat – a 15th century Muslim city full of beautiful mosques.

It has the longest unbroken sandy beach in the world, many beautiful archaeological sites, endless tea plantations, beautiful rivers and canals in the the Ganges Delta, tranquilizing hilly region, and mostly one of the most friendliest and hospitable people on earth.

If you’ve seen enough of the first world, and want to experience some new culture, Bangladesh is for you. It is still fully unspoiled by the tourists, and is a great offbeat destination. If you love photography, this will be a paradise for you. Unlike other countries, people here love their photos to be taken and never ask for money.

If you are visiting Bhutan, Bangladesh is one of the couple of countries they have any connection with.

How to get visa?

Citizens of EU, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and some Asian countries can get visa on arrival for 30 days which takes just 10 minutes, and costs about $51. No need to submit any application before arrival, no question asked.

What is the best time to travel?

The country is most beautiful during monsoon (Jun-Aug) which is the best time for the adventurous people and the photographers. But for most travelers, winter (Oct-Mar) will be more suitable, as the weather will be cool and comfortable, and less humid. September will be a mixture of the both.
