USA visa options

Maybe this is a dumb question.. but from what I understand, if you try to get a visa in advance with a US passport it is $160 and if you get it on arrival it is $50... so why would anyone bother to get one in advance??

Advice on Itinerary

Hello,

I’d like to get your thoughts on routing for a proposed 3-week itinerary for Bangladesh starting mid-Feb, 2015. I’m a single American woman and plan to travel independently (except the Sundarbans trip)--mostly by bus for ease of not having to pre-book--boat and trains when possible.

Laundry service in Dhaka or Sylhet

Hi all,

I am sure there is laundry service in Dhaka outside of bigger hotels. I stay at the Al Razzaque by now but it seems that they don't have services like this. And I don't know where else to find it.

I am looking for a place where I could drop my 2 kilos and get them back clean the next day. Price per kilo not per piece. Do you have an address or tips for me?

Thanks,
T.
