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 float through the sprawling mangrove forests of the Sundarbans, walk through the Lawachhara Forest in search of Hoolock gibbons, spend time 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

Tour Highlights

  • Sundarbans - Float through the world's largest mangrove forest
  • Srimongal - Explore rubber and tea plantations by bike and look out for Hoolock Gibbons whilst walking in the Lawachhara forest

  • Temples, Mosques and Monasteries - Visit the terracotta temples at Puthia, the Buddhist monastery ruins at Paharpur and the ornate 60-domed Mosque
  • Dhaka - Take a boat trip on the Buriganga river
