Hi. I'm London female travelling alone to dhaka in December, mainly doing research with acid violence foundation & BRAC. However my first few days I'm at a loose end & would appreciate any tips for tours, or, even better, if you will also be there around that time and want to hang out/ explore together!!
hello community members!
we want to go to bangladesh with a sidetrip to northeast-india. for that we need a double-entry-visa. but here at the embassy in germany they just issue single-entry-visas for tourists. somebody knows how to manage that situation? is it better to get a visa on arrival at the airport in dhaka which we would use first and use the "german" visa when we come back from assam? or is there a way to change our visa into a double-entry-visa in dhaka?
thankful for some adivce,
I'm trying to contact the Chinese embassy in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
They haven't picked up the telephone as of yet, and the email addresses I have for them (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) both get bounced back.

I will be travelling to Dhaka in a few weeks' time. After spending a few days there I plan to go to Kolkata, India with the train services that runs between the two countries (Maitree Express).
I am kind of worried that by the time I get to Bangladesh there won't be any ticket left so I would like to have a local travel agent make the reservation in my name ASAP. I've tried contacting a few that actually have websites but none have bothered getting back to me.

Hi, I will shortly be going to live and volunteer in Bangladesh for 4 months and wanted some tips regarding feminine hygiene (sorry guys).

Hi, I'm a German passport holder spending my time in Bangladesh. My visa on arrival will expire in two weeks. As I'm doing my internship over here I'm in need of a business visa, 90 days, multiple entry. I heard that the easiest way is to leave the country to, for example, Nepal or Thailand, and apply for a visa at the local embassy, in my case the Bangladeshi embassy.
Now my question: Does anybody have experience with applying for a business visa ( or other visa) in Nepal for…

I am a budget traveler and depend on Lonley planet's guide book. Sometime I helped wrote on thorn tree forum to support traveler who want to travel my country.
