Pleasantly surprised by the friendliness and curiosity of Bangladeshi people

I spent three weeks in Bangladesh and joined two tours with Nihjoom Tours – Treasures of Chittagong and Highlights of Bangladesh. Both very very well organised and enjoyable.

The itinerary was well planned to include everything interesting there was to see, which in Bangladesh is the often the people going about their ordinary lives. The guide was also flexible and allowed us to make some small changes, skipping things we weren’t so interested in, and finding other things that suited us.

I liked that we travelled a lot on trains and boats and used CNG (tut-tuks) for short trips. The accommodation was simple but perfectly good, and it’s clear that Hasan, the company owner, has cultivated reliable local contacts.

We hear many negative things about the security situation in Bangladesh, but at no time did I feel unsafe. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by the friendliness and curiosity of local people.

Hasan is a real advocate for his country and sincerely wants people to come and discover it. I would highly recommend his tours. Inquiries, booking and all arrangements were handled competently and smoothly at all stages of the process.
