Well planned

I returned recently from the 14 day Glories of Bangladesh tour and I had a great time. I normally travel on my own but since Bangladesh has a weak infrastructure I thought it would be easier with a guide. I was not at all disappointed as the trip went off without a hitch. Remarkably, considering how busy the itinerary seemed, we made it to every attraction without ever seeming rushed.

My guide, Faisal, kept things moving along beautifully and was particularly helpful during the four long train rides. Faisal was also always upbeat, even when I was being a pain in the butt. I was also very happy with my driver, Litton, who was very friendly and adept at navigating the maddening traffic in Dhaka as well as the narrow streets of the smaller cities.

I would suggest that you try to interact with the locals, especially in the rural areas, as that resulted in some of the best moments of the trip. Visiting schools, homes, playing cricket and becoming the guest of honor at a Hindu service that I wandered into were all very memorable.

I would also suggest stocking up on pens because kids all over the place were asking for them. And be prepared to be bombarded with selfie requests. Young people there love to take pictures of themselves with Americans and Europeans.

  1. Thank you for visiting Bangladesh with Nijhoom Tours!

    Unfortunately stocking up on pens and distributing to the children on the way as you suggested will not be any good idea, as that will make expectations everywhere and will make it difficult for the other tourists who will be without pens. If someone wants to distribute pens, it would be better idea to go to a school and distribute there, instead of giving to everyone on the way.

    Glad to know that you enjoyed the tour! Looking forward to see you again with us in Bangladesh with another tour!
