We were in Dhaka for 10 days for two weddings and wanted also to see something of the city and the countryside of Bangladesh. The tours were fabulous: everything was easily booked, and the trips were well planned and carried out. Our guide (Opu) was terrific- helpful, friendly, knowledgeable, always ready to assist but never intrusive.
Bangladesh always felt safe, but without local knowledge and the language, we could never have managed to find our way about or manage the train journey. Old Dhaka is complex, hectic, jammed with traffic, and full of colour and excitement. Don’t miss it.
The trip to Sremangal (by train ) gave us a very interesting view of the countryside and took us to tea estates, and a national park where we saw gibbons in the forest. Overnight was in an eco-lodge: simple but adequate.
Thank you Bangladesh Unbound.
