Description of Bangladesh holiday

The sprawling city of Dhaka is the starting point for this in depth tour of Bangladesh, which follows the river south, by paddle steamer, all the way to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Sundarbans. This world’s largest mangrove forest shelters some 260 bird species – as well as the Bengal tiger. En route, you’ll visit palaces, Hindu temples, mosques, Buddhist monasteries and impressive archaeological sites, giving a unique insight into the past and present culture of Bangladesh, and its spirituality and religion.

As well as the big draws, this Bangladesh holiday is packed with lower-key but no less special treats, such as meeting fishermen who used trained otters to round up fish, the stone collectors of Jaflong and Khasia tribal people who live close to the Indian border. Stretch your legs with a hike through the Lawachara Forest Reserve, home to birds, monkeys and rare gibbons, and spend two days cruising through the Sundarbans, winding your way along the wider rivers and narrow channels in search of the thriving wildlife.

Bangladesh
Holidays to Bangladesh take you to a low-lying land where waterways rule the way of life. The vast Padma (Ganges) and Jamuna (Brahmaputra) rivers are ...
Unusual
In French, they use the word ‘insolite’ to describe an unusual holiday. Which sounds a bit like insolent. Rebelling against the norm.

Holiday information

Small group tour:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modelled on independent travel – but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. It’s easy to tick off the big sights independently – but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, travelling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. Those with a two-week holiday, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.

Excellent. Bangladesh is a beautiful , diverse country, from chaotic Dhaka to the serenity of the Sunderbans , populated by the most friendly people imaginable , curious but polite on meeting foreign tourists, who, are a rarity on this relatively unexplored country. Read full review
