Bangladesh is a land that is blessed by nature. You can find beauty throughout the country no matter where you travel. So if you are looking for places to visit in Bangladesh, you have a lot of options. With winter being an ideal season to travel, it’s time you take a trip to some of the most beautiful places in Bangladesh. However, most of us don’t have the luxury of visiting all these great places during such a limited time. We can only visit one or two places during this period. So the question becomes, where should you go? To answer that question, we have created a shortlist of the best places to visit in Bangladesh this winter season. Let’s take a look at the best options available for a winter trip.
Bangladesh has two of the most beautiful beaches in the world; one is Cox’s Bazar, and the other is Kuakata. However, Kuakata is often underrated as a travel destination. Most people travel to Cox’s Bazar in the winter when they yearn to visit the sea. That means, the beaches there can get very crowded, while beaches in Kuakata are, in comparison, less so. Here, you’ll have lots of space for yourself to enjoy the majesty of the sea. And standing on the white sandy beaches of Kuakata, you’ll witness the most magnificent unobstructed view of the sunrise and sunset over the Bay of Bengal. It’s not just Bangladeshis who appreciate the view, though. People from all over the world visit Kuakata to bask themselves in the view. All of these things make Kuakata one of the most beautiful places in Bangladesh, and certainly one of the best places to visit.
Fresh air and natural beauty are the two main reasons to buy an apartment in Chattogram and make a life there. It is the only metropolis in Bangladesh where you can be close to nature and still enjoy the benefits of a thriving modern city. Life in Chattogram is blissful thanks to the sea and the hills. The natural richness of the city only preludes to the splendor that lies beyond the town. Chattogram is one of the best places to visit in Bangladesh; especially during the winter. Parki, Kattali and Patenga beaches each give you unique experiences of the sea. After that, if you want to lose yourself and feel one with nature, visit the lush green hills of Chattogram. Aside from the marvelous hill-tracts and the sea, you can also visit the country’s largest port and view the gigantic ships docked there.
When it comes to travel destinations, the Sylhet region is one of the most popular places to visit in Bangladesh. The hill-tracts, tea gardens, and numerous waterfalls make Sylhet the ideal destination for those looking for a memorable trip this winter. The beauty of Sylhet is only rivaled by Bandarban and Rangamati; which we will talk about later. However, many would prefer to spend their vacation in Sylhet over those two places. To understand why and to comprehend its allure, you need to experience the beauty of Sylhet yourself. Among all the beautiful places in Bangladesh, Sylhet has quite a few of them. Ratargul swamp forest, Sree Mangal, Jaflong, Bichanakandi and Tamabil are by far some of the most popular parts of Sylhet. And the best part is, you’ll find a lot of other places in Sylhet that are just as amazing as the areas we mentioned.
A UNESCO world heritage site – This sentence alone should signify the importance the Sundarbans has. It is one of the largest mangrove forests in the world and one of the most beautiful places in Bangladesh. And it is also the only places in the world where Royal Bengal Tigers roam free. It is a haven for biodiversity. Hundreds of species of animals, fauna, and birds live in the area, some of which you’ll only find in the Sundarbans. The climate of the area during summer is very hot and humid; while monsoon rain makes traveling there treacherous. As a result, the cool and temperate weather of a Bangladesh winter creates the perfect time to pay a visit. Due to sensitive ecological balance and perceived risk, tourists are usually advised to be accompanied by professional guides.
Bandarban and Rangamati
While it might seem unfair to group Bandarban and Rangamati together as the best places to visit in Bangladesh; we do this because both areas provide a similar experience to travelers and are often discussed in the same vein. These two areas have unparalleled beauty. The mountain ranges of Rangamati and Bandarban take you high above the clouds, and as you are standing there, you’ll feel like you are in heaven. Saka Haphong, Dumlong, Keokradong, and all the other highest points in the country are in these two districts. Also, many hidden gems were tucked away from the prying eyes that are only being discovered in recent times. Boga Lake recently gained a lot of fame due to its beauty and attracts many locals and foreigners. It has become one of the top attractions in Bangladesh. There are also quite a few waterfalls, temples and vantage points that are sure to mesmerize.
Tourism plays a great part in Bangladesh’s real estate market, and these places have contributed more than their fair share. There are a lot of beautiful places in Bangladesh waiting for you to visit. If you have the time, don’t be content with just visiting places around Dhaka this winter. Find all the winter clothes you’ll need and head out to explore the beauty and marvels Bangladesh has to offer.
