Present political situation in Bangladesh

So my wife and I have planned to go to Bangladesh next week for 28 days. We were planning on visiting the Sundarbans, Cox's Bazaar and Sylhet.

Hey everybody!
We are 2 germans and we are in India at the moment with our own car. We would love to cross Bangladesh from on our way from kolkata to bhutan.

Transport blockade

I'll be arriving in Bangladesh on the 23rd of January so its possible that the current BNP organised blockade will still be in place. I'm hoping someone in Bangladesh at the moment can explain how it is affecting transport.

Where is Jailkhana Ghat - Khulna?

Does anyone know where Jailkhana Ghat is in Khulna or if it goes by a different name? I'm supposed to meet a boat there for a Sundarbans trip but have scoured maps and the Internet to no avail. I'm sure a rickshaw or CNG driver would know the location, but i like to know where i'm going in advance. Thanks for your help.

Bangladesh Two-Week Budget Tour -- Part I

My wife and I, older Canadians in our mid-60s, recently spent two weeks in Bangladesh as part of a three-month trip that also included Nepal, West Bengal, Sikkim, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Kerala, Goa, and Mumbai. We thought that our experience in Bangladesh might be of interest to other travellers who are thinking of going there but are not sure whether to travel independently or take a tour.

We normally travel independently but rightly or wrongly, it seemed to us that Bangladesh might…
