Places in Bangladesh
Dhaka is more than just a city; it’s a giant whirlpool that sucks in anything and anyone that comes within its furious grasp. Around and around it sends them, like some wildly spinning fairground ride bursting with energy. Millions of individual pursuits constantly churn together into a frenzy of collective activity – an urban melting pot forever bubbling over.
Every corner of Bangladesh is blessed with beautifully green landscape, but none more so, it seems, than Sylhet. From glistening rice paddies and wetland marshes to forested nature reserves and rolling hills blanketed in waist-high tea bushes, Sylhet seems to contain every possible shade of green you can imagine.
Friendly Sylhet may be a divisional capital, but it has a small-town feel to it with bustling roadside market stalls, particularly around Bandar Bazar, adding colour to the streets come evening. The majority of British Bangladeshis hail from here and are likely to wax lyrical over the place.
