Cultural Tour Of Bangladesh
Chaotic cities, forest walks, tea plantations and river journeys are all part of this exploration of Bangladesh. After winding our way through the Dhaka traffic we spend time walking through the Lawachhara Forest in search of Hoolock gibbons, stay with traditional Garo families and stop for hot sweet tea at the bazaars and markets we visit along the way. The highlight of the country is the people; with few foreign visitors, those that do travel receive a warm welcome and a chance to experience traditional Bengali hospitality.
