The Undiscovered Paradise

Not just another tourist destination, the untouched wonders of Bangladesh offer authenticity and beauty to global explorers
In a world overflowing with established holiday destinations, one cannot help but be charmed by the natural beauty of Bangladesh; one of the few outstanding countries in Asia yet to be fully explored. Composed of many unspoiled features, Bangladesh has so far remained one of the region’s best kept secrets; but a new wave of resorts offering everything from eco-tourism to the lap of luxury is emerging, and this magical place will not remain hidden for long.
WE HAVE THE HILLS, WE HAVE THE SEA, WE HAVE VAST PLAIN LANDS, WE HAVE RIVERS, WE HAVE ARCHAEOLOGICALLY IMPORTANT SITES – AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, WE HAVE OUR WONDERFULLY HOSPITABLE PEOPLE.”

G.M. QUADER
Former Minister for Tourism, Current Minister of Commerce

No matter where your interests lie, Bangladesh has something to offer. The world’s longest unbroken beach – Cox’s Bazar – is truly stunning, providing a tranquil escape from the bustling and vibrant hubbub of one of the world’s most populated mega-cities, Bangladesh’s capital Dhaka. Superb five-star resorts meet international standards, while those looking for something more economical will find an array of beachfront hotels which cater to recession-hit budgets while maintaining excellent service.

This is a country where genuine adventure is not a possibility but a certainty. You can chug down mile-wide rivers in 19th century river-boats, or stroll the rolling hills of the Comilla district where long-lost Buddhist temples and cities are waiting to be rediscovered. Take a trip to the exquisite tea gardens of Sylhet stretching as far as the eye can see, then finish your afternoon with a fresh cup of fine tea, before indulging in the superb local cuisine. (It is a little known fact that the people of Sylhet are largely responsible for making the British a curry-loving nation, being among the first to introduce ‘Indian’ restaurants to the UK).

You must also explore one of the world’s great wonders – The Sundarbans, (pronounced shunda-bans) – home to one of the planet’s largest mangrove forests and an endless variety of wildlife including the pride of Bangladesh – the Bengal Tiger, an endangered and majestic animal still relishing its natural habitat.

“We have everything that tourists like to see. We have the hills, we have the sea, we have vast plain lands, we have rivers, we have archaeologically important sites, and most importantly we have our wonderfully hospitable people – they have a natural smile on their faces,” says G.M. Quader, former Minister of Civil Aviation and Tourism.

Bangladesh is any inspired artist’s masterpiece come true. Its rich tapestry of colour and texture deliver captivating surprises around every corner, so if you are hungry for an unforgettable holiday destination, Bangladesh awaits you with its unique smile.

Having lived and worked in Bangladesh several years ago I agree with sentiments expressing Bangladesh's natural beauty but am disappointed there is no mention of the Chittagong Hills Tribal areas - surely one of if not the most beautiful regions within Bangladesh.
I wish you every success in coming years
Best regards
