Khulna Division/Bangladesh

Introducing Khulna Division

The tigers and mangrove forests of the Sundarbans are the main reason for venturing out to this southwest corner of the country, although the Islamic ruins of Bagerhat are another big draw. Sadly you can’t get all the way out here by Rocket steamer any more, but the part-ferry, part-bus journey from Dhaka to Khulna, via Barisal, can be a lot of fun.

Travellers heading to or coming from Kolkata in India will also pass through Khulna – the land border at Benapole is one of Bangladesh’s busiest – while Kushtia makes an interesting stop if you’re on your way north to the history-rich division of Rajshahi.
