Tourism In Bangladesh: An Unleashing Horizon of Immense Pleasure
« on: November 03, 2010, 03:13:06 PM »
Bangladesh is one of the few countries in South Asia, which remains to be explored. Bangladesh has a delicate and distinctive attraction of its own to offer and it is definitely not a tourist haunt like Nepal or India. Bangladesh is like a painter's dream come true with a rich tapestry of colors and texture. The traditional emphasis of the tourist trade has always been on the material facilities offered by a country rather than on its actual charms. This may be a reason why Bangladesh has seldom been highlighted in the World's tourist maps.
 

It's a land of enormous beauty, hundreds of serpentine rivers, crystal clear water lakes surrounded by ever green hills, luxuriant tropical rain forests, beautiful cascades of green tea gardens, world's largest mangrove forest preserved as World Heritage, home of the Royal Bengal Tiger and the wild lives, warbling of birds in green trees, wind in the paddy fields, abundance of sunshine, world's longest natural sea beach, rich cultural heritage, relics of ancient Buddhist civilizations and colorful tribal lives, - Bangladesh creates an unforgettable impression of a land of peace.


The culture and the environment on Bangladesh are really appreciable. These are not simply sight-seeing excursions, but real-time learning experiences. Enjoy an ideal blend of adventure and exploration with comfort and relaxation.


Prior to the time of Bangladeshs' liberation in 1971, most tourists kept their visits to, Dhaka and Agrabad, however with limited satisfactory accomodation in the rest of Bangladesh at that time, saw neighbouring Kolkata in West Bengal, who were well ahead with their facilities, soar in popularity. It took until the middle of the nineteen nineties for the improvement in accomodation started to show increased numbers of tourist flow.


Since the year 2000 tourists arriving in Bangladesh have been swelling in numbers. Also travelling further within the country and visiting places like Cox' Bazaar, Teknaf, the Sundarbans, Kuakata, Paharpur and Tetulia. Not only is it international visitors but locals are also taking their holidays and coming to Dhaka, Khulna and Chittgong. All these travellers require appropriate accommodation and the demand in hotel beds and restaurants are now being met for every taste and every budget. Many of the visitors are expariate Bangladeshi coming to Bangladesh not only to visit their families, but for a holiday and to experience the vibrant and culturally rich country of their forebearers. Catering for all these people have seen an increase in the demand for new hotels and restaurants in Dhaka and other tourist locations.

Thakns Ansari for the wonderful job. However, we should broaden our mentality to draw tourists from outside. We need to respect the culture, (especially dress and food) of the tourists who take pain to visit our country. Otherwise Bangladesh will not be able to make much money from tourism sector. Security issue must be given high priority for tourists. Just for the lack of security many Bangladeshis prefer visiting other countries that are not as beautiful as ours in some cases.
Only government effort cannot help. What we need is the mass awareness of our country people, especially the local people, so that they can develop a feeling of respcet for different culture and opinion and take necessary steps to ensure security for the tourists.
