Introduction
Chittagong,the second largest city of Bangladesh and a busy international seaport,is an ideal vacation spot. Its green hills and forests,its broad sandy beaches and its fine cool climate always attract the holiday-makers. Described by the Chinese traveler poet, Huen T sang(7th century A.D) as "a sleeping beauty emerging from mists and water" and given the title of "Porto Grande" by the 16th century Portuguese seafarers. Chittagong remains true to both these descriptions even today. It combines the busy humming of an active seaport with the peace and quiet of a charming hill town.

The Shahi Jama-e-Masjid and Qadam Mubarak Mosque are two of the most impressive buildings in the city. It is also worth visiting the ethnological museum in the modern city which has interesting displays on Bangladesh's tribal peoples. There are good views and cooling breezes coming from fairy hills in the British built city in the north-western sector of the city.

Chittagong is the country's main port and the main site for the establishment of heavy, medium and light industries. Bangladesh's only steel mill and oil refinery are also located in Chittagong.

Chittagong is connected by road and rail with the rest of the country. Very smooth transport like Volvo a/c buses are available. It also has air links with Thailand, Dubai Singapore, India & the capital Dhaka.

. There are lots of place to visit and see--- The tomb of Sultan Bayazid Bostami, The World War II cemetery, The shrine of Shah Amanat, Court Building museum, natural Foy's Lake with a panaromic view & also see resort, Mercantile Marine Academy at Juldia, Patenga & Fouzdarhat sea beaches, the port area, Ethnological museum, Sia museum
