Bangladesh is known for its vibrant history, historical landmarks like the Sundarbans mangrove forest and ancient temples, as well as its textiles and the production of garments. It’s also known for being a deltaic country with a rich river system.

Bangladesh might not be as famous for tourism as some other countries. It does offer a variety of attractions and unique experiences for travellers as like travelling throughout the country by river. The tourism industry in Bangladesh is growing, and the government is making efforts to promote the country as tourist destination. However, it’s worth noting that tourism infrastructure and services may not be as developed as in some other countries, so travellers often need to be prepared for a more authentic and less commercialized experience.

Bangladesh is not only just a country but for many Indian Bengalis, Bangladesh holds deep emotional significance due to its historical and cultural connections. Before the partition of India in 1947, Bengal was a unified region with a rich heritage of literature, art, and traditions. When the partition occurred, Bengal was divided along religion lines, with East Bengal becoming East Pakistan (and later Bangladesh) and West Bengal becoming a part of India. The separation resulted in a significant displacement of people, who had to leave their homes and move to India due to the religious division. This led to a sense of loss and nostalgia for many Bengali families who had to leave their ancestral lands and cultural roots.

Bangladesh with its nature, rivers and scenic beauty is actually a wonderful country to travel for. There you can explore the beautiful Sundarbans which is the largest mangrove forest in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, known for its diverse wildlife including the Bengal Tiger and also there are more amazing places to visit that is Cox’s Bazar, Sylhet, Rangamati, Dhaka, Paharpur, Kuakata these are just a few examples there are many more to it.

Foods include: Rice and Fish, Biryani, Panta Bhat, Bhorta, Hilsa Fish, Roshogolla, Pitha, Luchi and Cholar Dal, Fuchka, these are just few examples of the many dishes that make up the diverse and flavourful Bangladeshi cuisine. There you must try the most famous cuisine that is (Podda-r ilish) that is Hilsa Fish, especially from river Padma, this fish has a great significance for Bengalis New Year, various festive occasions and most importantly in Bengali weddings, hilsa is considered a symbol of prosperity, good fortune, and auspicious beginnings.
