Travel to Bangladesh this World Cup

Posted by Royal Sundaram on 03 Mar 2011

In the 7th century AD, a Chinese poet described Bangladesh as “a sleeping beauty emerging from mists and water.” Centuries later, the statement may still hold true!

Bangladesh is one the countries hosting the World Cup. So, combine travel and cricket and take the road less travelled!

Here are the must-see destinations in Bangladesh:

Dhakeshwari Temple – Bangladesh is filled with mosques, churches and temples of stunning architecture. But one temple you should not miss is Dhakeshwari Temple, built in 11th Century, though it has been renovated and modified several times since then. The temple lends its name to the capital – Dhaka.

National Zoo and Botanical Garden – The National Zoo in Mirpur houses the Royal Bengal Tiger, along with several other exotic birds and animals. Just beside the zoo, is Botanical Garden. The garden contains more than 300 varieties of roses. There are many exotic plants and trees to look forward to as well.

Cox’s Bazar – Cox’s Bazar is not a name of shopping centre, but the world’s longest beach! The beach measures 120 km in length. Ofcourse, it’s a great place to shop too. If you’d like a less crowded place, head to Parki beach. It’s not as famous, but equally beautiful place to enjoy sun, sand and a blue sky as roof.

Sundarbans – Sundarbans, in Khulna division is one the major attractions of Bangladesh. It contains the world’s largest mangrove forests. Wildlife enthusiasts flock the place to capture Royal Bengal Tiger, which roam freely here. Apart from the majestic animal, you can spot deer, birds and wild flower gardens and other animals. You can enjoy boat rides, nature tours and adventure here.

If you miss deers at Sunderban, visit at Horinghata in Bharisal division!

Jaflong – In Jaflong, Mari river which originates at Himalayas carries along boulders which is collected by locals. The view of this place is breathtaking! Places around Jaflong offer nature’s best sights too. Sripur, 8 km away has magnificent waterfalls. At this place, you can catch the sight of waterfalls back in homeland India. Lusciously green – tea gardens also lie in close proximity to Jaflong. There’s also a 500-year old temple – Sri Chaitanya Dev temple around it.

Rajshahi Division – If you love history, then Rajshahi is the place to go. Many places around Rajshahi are of historical importance. Mahasthanagar, established in 2500 BC was the capital of Kingdom of Mourjo, Gupta and Sen Dynasty. Another historical delight is the 7th century Buddhist monastery.

There’s also Kantajee’s Temple, built in 1722. Puthia has many historical temples created between 1823 and 1895, dedicated to – Govinda, Siva, and Jagannath.

That was a brief highlight of Bangladesh tourism. Game for a tour? It’s the best time to enjoy cricket and abroad travel. Howzzat!
