I will have only eight days to spend in Bangladesh in August after a business trip to India, and am having trouble (a) choosing what to visit and (b) knowing how realistic I'm being in terms of journey times and distances.
I'll cross by land on a bus from Kolkata (so that I can get a VOA), and thought I might stay the first night in Jessore.
I'll fly out of Dhaka and would like a day there to see some sights.
Between those two places, I'm interested in a river trip (such as the Rocket…
Hello to those traveling in Bangladesh,
Just to update some of you that it's very difficult to get a permit to CHT these days. I would recommend doing it through a tour company (guide tours charges 1000BDT). Also many areas at this time are forbidden for foreigners namely: Keokradong and Lake Boga. Apparently Lake Boga can be visited but you cannot stay there so you must make it a long day journey from Bandarban. Keokradong is completely forbidden.
In other news, I just arrived at Sreemangal…
Hi there, i know - this topic was discussed here before. Yet the most posts are a bis old. So i would be really glad, if someone can tell me, if it still possible to overstay up to 15 day by paying 200 Tk. for each day?
I'm right now here with an N-Visa, which expires 8 days before my flight is going. Another extension is not an option, also because my internship will end one month before I'm leaving. So i would be glad for any answer :)

Hi there - I'm looking for a guide book on Bangladesh and it would appear the pickings are slim indeed. Bradt has one from 2012, and Lonely Planet's most recent book was published 2016. I suppose the LP one would be more useful because it's newer, but I'm not always a big fan of the LP books (and love Bradt). Has anyone used either/both of these books and does anyone have an opinion on them?
(I see the Culture Smart series has one as well, but it's not really a guide book per se).
I'm thinking about going to bangladesh in may and I'm wondering how bad the wet season actually is. I've heard and read that its supposed to be pretty rough, so is it worth travelling to Bangladesh during this period?

I have been offered an internship in Dhaka, and need some pointers on how I can make my stay more comfortable.
Has anyone stayed in Bangladesh for a longer period? Say 3+ months? Do you have any advice on how I can meet new friends (both locals and foreigners) and have fun in the city.
I know there were some terrorist attacks in Dhaka in the beginning of 2017 where some of foreigners got killed. Have there been any attacks since? And in what areas in Dhaka did they occur? What other…
