A good amount of Bangladesh’s economy is dedicated to the tourism sector. However, this area goes relatively unvisited when comparing the actual numbers to the potential that could be there.
A big part of this country’s tourism is on the natural side. With an immense amount of wildlife, there is a lot to take in. There are also a few historic monuments worth checking out. There are three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, so they are absolutely worth your time.
One part of the country that you cannot mix is the worlds’ largest river delta. The Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers make up this area, so the natural world totally flourishes in the surrounding spots.
Hinduism, Island and Buddhism are all prevalent in the culture of Bangladesh. As you go through the country, you can see the diversity through the food, music and lifestyle of over 45 different ethnic groups. One time to experience it all melting together is during the Shakrain Festival in January. This is a kite festival that features fireworks and tons of great food.
