Comilla is a boisterous and bustling market town 90km southeast of Dhaka and a few kilometres west of the Indian state of Tripura. It receives very few foreign visitors, and everywhere you go you will be an object of intense and friendly curiosity. It is a base for those visiting the fascinating and extensive Buddhist ruins of Mainimati.
The heart of Comilla is the manic and colourful Kandirpar Circle, from which four major arteries extend. Fazlul Haque Rd heads eastward, eventually becoming Chowk Bazar Rd and the road to Chittagong. Heading east along this street you’ll come to Rajshinda Market and Chowk Bazar, a major commercial area. For internet access, head to EarthNet-Bd (per hr Tk 30).
