I found Bangladesh Unbound on the Internet and found the website so well done and interesting. I wanted to do everything. But settled for the Old Dhaka tour with Naeem. A great day. Seeing the sights with such a knowledgeable person was fun and interesting.
Next, I went on the overnight Rocket experience with Faisal. A very caring and passionate guide for the Barisal area. I loved the backwaters and the villages and the industriousness of the villagers. So many different enterprises to be seen from our little boat on the canals.
Back to Dhaka via Bagerat and Khulna. Then onto Srimangal and the tea plantation with Arafat. Once again, I loved the villages and the tea gardens and Arafat’s obvious interest and enjoyment of sharing his passion for village life and the people.
Dhaka again for a great day with Opu, visiting the amazing Parliament House. Last was Sonargaon and its monuments with Mushfiq, another well informed and caring person. The drivers, Liton and Shajahan were careful and I felt very safe with them.
I would recommend every person to come to this country and see for themselves the warmth and friendliness of the Bangladeshi people.
