Beautiful Bangladesh

  • Print


Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
Bangladesh is a land of mystery and intrigue. The country is
centuries old and while it has seen many visitors over the years, it is only now starting to experience
a commercial tourism boom.
In many respects, Bangladesh
is a land of opportunity and adventure. All you need do is
step out and discover its many mysteries for yourself.
There are so many things to be enjoyed here. Perhaps one of the most popular activities is that of sunning yourself on the exquisite white sandy beaches of Cox’s Bazaar and Teknaaf. Both beaches are
situated on the eastern coast of the Bay of Bengal and are relatively unspoilt by tourists making them
a great place to spend vacation time. Another attraction is the many archaeological sites in the country. They are interesting from a cultural and architectural point of view and can be fascinating to tour. Bangladesh’s other attraction is a
bit more lively - the Royal Bengal Tigers which have become somewhat of a trademark for the country. These stunning big cats are
somewhat protected in the country and are stunning to behold!
Bangladesh is also home to the longest sea beach, the largest tea gardens and some amazing exotic animal life. To top it off, the people of the country are colorful and friendly and have a fascinating
culture. There is a lot to do here. You can choose things such as trekking and adventure tours. Most of the activities give you the
opportunity to take in the beautiful green mountains, sparkling rivers and clear vistas. The natural wealth of the area is, in many respects, unbeatable. Bangladesh
is a paradise just waiting
to be discovered!
Bangladesh has been aptly described as a new state in an ancient land. Much has been written about the past glory of Bangladesh, notably in old records like the
evidence of Pliny and Periplus of the Erythrean Sea (first century AD). It was drawn in Ptolemy’s map. These indicate that from the earliest times Bangladesh was known to the West, particularly for its Muslin,
the finest fabric the world has ever produced. Travellers and
scholars who were attracted by the charms and fame of Bangladesh since time immemorial had
showered effusive epithets on its bounties and wealth, affluence and prosperity, craftsmanship and
cultural advancement.  n
