Reading the world's press you could be forgiven for thinking that Bangladesh is a disaster zone rather than a travel destination. But hiding behind these images of cyclones and floods is a strikingly lush and beautiful land with a rich history and a variety of attractions unusual for a country this size. For a start, you can visit archaeological sites dating back over 2000 years, check out the longest beach and the largest littoral mangrove forest in the world, and see decaying ' gone with the wind' mansions of 19th-century maharajas. Now a days Bangladesh is the third largest ready made Garments exporter in the whole world.

Despite being the world's most crowded country, rural Bangladesh feels relaxed, spacious and friendly. Travelers from India have been agreeably surprised to find border officials offering them cups of tea rather than reams of forms to fill in.

Facilities are not limited. There are many big cities now with all international facilities as European standard but if u have an independent streak, it is definitely worth avoiding the crowds heading to India and Nepal and following the old slogan of Bangladesh's tourist body. 'Come to Bangladesh before the tourists'.
