Bangladesh Tourism Board's top recommendations

Chittagong Hill Tracts - The Sylhet Division - The Sundarbans - Cox's Bazar


A combination of dense jungle, sprawling hills, and beautiful bamboo-covered cliffs, the Chittagong Hill tracts are decidedly unlike anywhere else in Bangladesh. Located south of Chittagong, the second largest city in the country, the hill tracts are inhabited by Adivasis (tribal people) who dwell in bamboo houses with thatched roofs, and have a wealth of ancient traditions. Visiting Buddhist monasteries and a boat trip on the Kaptai Lake are amongst the range of things to do.


The gentle bumpy hills of the Sylhet division are crowned by the glorious and seemingly never-ending vibrant green tea plantations. A must see, Sylhet has 150 tea gardens spread over 40,000 acres of lush Bangladeshi countryside. The stunning and romantic waterfall in Madhabkunda southeast of the city is also a refreshing sight.


The largest mangrove forest in the world with wildlife straight from the jungle book, the Sundarbans National Park is deeply ensconced in magic and mystery. After arriving in Khulna, you can board a luxury tour cruise which will take you deep into the park – a bird watcher’s paradise where you can relax and get lost whilst realizing every adventurers’ dream of seeing a Royal Bengal Tiger roaming wild and in
its habitat.


The longest un-cut beach in the world, Cox’s Bazar situated in the southern tip of Bangladesh. Sit back and relax in the soft white sand or take trips to nearby natural islands on fishing boats to see the hidden beaches bedecked with surprising bright red crabs. There is a range of hotels available for those on any budget. Also recommended is a trip to St Martin’s island at the most southern point of the country where the waters are turquoise and the palm trees reign supreme.
