Has anyone else found Ratargul to be immensely disappointing and very different to the most recent lonely planet description. In particular that it was nowhere near 200ha in size or 35km northwest of Sylhet. At first I thought we must have been taken to the wrong place but we were in the google maps marked Ratargul forest swamp.

I would be very interested to here what other travellers who have been here thought or to get some feedback from lonely planet (when did your writers last go here?) as…

wifi

Hi,
My question is about wifi. Is it possible to get a Bangladeshi sim so I can use wifi? Or is pocket internet available? How long does the application take and what do they need? Which provider is the best?
Thanks,
Sandra

Hello!
Few years ago it was impossible to apply for tourist Bangladesh visa in Kathmandu, but is the situation another nowadays? How's the process of getting Bangladesh visa there, have you got any experience?

Hello!
I'm very interested to find out where I can meet fellow backpackers and overlanders in Bangladesh, in Dhaka or maybe other cities. Any suggestions about cafes, hotels&hostels and other places? Would be glad to find any information on this topics in such non-tourist country.

I will visit Bangladesh/Dhaka for 3-4 days. Any recommendation for a budget tour guide in Dhaka (for a day or two)? Also, any recommendation for a budget tourist hotel/hostel in a good location in Dhaka? Lastly, what other destination in Bangladesh would you recommend besides Dhaka, one that I could easily reach within a day from Dhaka. Thanks in advance.

Hello all tourists (foreign and domestic). While travelling by train, bus, local car hire or boat is a much more authentic experience in Bangladesh, those with tight schedules (and bigger wallets) with interest in visiting certain places only may wish to consider flying using one of the private domestic airlines who provide a reliable, professional and pleasant service. People everwhere can purchase their tickets online on their websites except for the airline with * next to its name. Here are…

itinerary tips

Hi -
I will be in Bangladesh in less than two weeks. My current itinerary is, in this order:
2 nights Dhaka
2 nights Bogra
3 nights Rajshahi
2 nights Khulna
2 nights Sundarban tour
2 nights Khulna
1 night on Rocket Steamer
1 night Dhaka

I am starting to rethink my plan to visit Bogra -- it seems like a long bus journey to see the surrounding archaeological sites. I am looking for alternative suggestions if I decide to skip Bogra. I could shave a night out of Rajshahi but I would still like to visit…

Hi,
I hope to travel around Bangladesh during the months of April & May (maybe June too).

Will visit Barisal, Chittagong, Dhaka, Sylhet, Cox Bazaar). Will the heat/humidity be too strong? I am used to 32-degree weather (little humidity), but I'm concerned the weather will be too much (I like to walk/explore the whole day).

Also, I hear that travelling in Bangladesh during the monsoon can be a fun experience. What are your thoughts?
Regards
