Here are the best places to visit in Bangladesh:

1. Cox’s Bazar

This is the third longest beach on the planet and you will find local fishermen reeling in the day’s catch.

As well as bubbling rock pools and crashing turquoise waves that make this a great spot for surfing.

Spilling out into the Bay of Bengal is Cox’s Bazar, an area covered in salty fishing skiffs and bustling jetties.

This little town in the far south-east of Bangladesh is known for its stunning beach.

Which stretches for an amazing 120 kilometers from north to south along the side of the balmy Indian Ocean.

2.The Sundarbans

The Sundarbans is a mangrove area in the delta formed by the confluence of the GangesBrahmaputra and Meghna Rivers in the Bay of Bengal.

It spans from the Hooghly River in India‘s state of West Bengal to the Baleswar River in Bangladesh.

It comprises closed and open mangrove forests, agriculturally used land, mudflats and barren land, and is intersected by multiple tidal streams and channels.

Four protected areas in the Sundarbans are enlisted as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, viz. Sundarbans National ParkSundarbans WestSundarbans South and Sundarbans East Wildlife Sanctuaries.

3. Srimangal

It is said the name Sreemangal (or Srimangal) is named after Sri Das and Mangal Das; two brothers who settled on the banks of the Hail Haor.

A copper plate of Raja Marundanath from the 11th century was found in Kalapur. During an excavation at Lamua, an ancient statue of Ananta Narayan was dug out.

In 1454, the Nirmai Shiva Bari was built and still stands today. Srimangal thana was established in 1912.

The central town later became a pourashava in 1935. In 1963, two peasants were killed by police officers which kicked off the Balishira peasant riots.

During the Bangladesh Liberation War of 1971, the Pakistani army reached Srimangal on 30 April setting houses on fire and committing atrocities against women.

The East Pakistan Rifles camp and Wapda office premises were among the two mass killing sites. Two mass graves remain in Bharaura with a memorial in North Bharaura.
