Book cheap hotels in Bangladesh

Like most ‘Less Developed Countries’, especially the many with great and unique histories, and the heritage that derives from it, exploring that rich heritage requires travel beyond the great cities. Bangladesh is not, in fact, a vast country, though some 40% of its landmass is water! Many visitors regard the unusual combination of verdant countryside, in which more than half the, mostly, youthful population live and work, with its rich, tangible and visible historic heritage, and in which its extraordinary, and unique cultural heritage flourishes, as one of the most fascinating aspects of their exploration of the country. Where the vibrant, colorful and youthful communities, most of which contain ancient palaces, forts, temples, mosques or other architectural monuments, the hospitality of the people, as it has been for millennia, offered to visitors and traders from across the known world, is second to none.

The country has its ancient cities; the earliest traceable back to the early years of the last millennium BCE. In fact, Stone age artefacts have also also been found on the sites of some, such as Wari Bateshwar, possibly connected with the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Gangaridai, much written about by classical age writers of Europe.

Tips for your trip to Bangladesh

  • In the north of the country lies the site of the largest fortified city in India, the sixth century, Buddhist controlled, multi walled and moated city of Bhitagarh
  • There are, also, over 150 palace sites in Bangladesh, dating from the Sultanate period of 13th to 16th centuries, through the Mughal and East India Company periods, to the Imperial Raj, dating from the middle of the 19th century. Most were left in a semi ruinous state by the Pakistan Army, during the 1971 Liberation War,; sufficient remain to make exploration a stimulating experience, and even the semi ruinous offer an insight to the rich (in two senses of the word!) heritage of the country.
  • With over 400 identified sites of Buddhist Temples and Vihara (Monasteries/universities), including two of the most famous five in Buddhist history, of which the World Heritage site, at Pahapur in North Bengal, with 3rd century BCE origins, is the most famous, it is not hard to appreciate that these lands of the Ganges basin were, indeed, the foundation of that great faith group.
  • Countless Hindu temples, churches and mosques, together with five century old forts, and remnants of the East India Company and the Raj, reflect the rise of three great great faith groups, aspiring conquerors and the rise and fall of five Empires..not to mention the world’s first true multinational corporation.
  • From surfing at Cox’s Bazar, founded, on , what is claimed to be, the world’s longest, continuous sea beach, with its unique, colourful, half moon craft fishing fleet, in 1799 by Scots born Captain Hiram Cox, an East India COmpany official, to golfing on the many fine courses in the country, leisure, too, is well catered for. Not to mention the opportunities for trekking in Bangladesh’s own hill country, like those of neighbouring India, Myanmar and Nepal, also the foothills of the Himalayan range.
  • A spectacular, seasonal spectator sport includes the boat racing, of early tradition, with many boat crews of over a hundred, pointed by a spear man, and encouraged by drummers. The spectacle rivals the famous Dragon Boat racing of Hong Kong and Malaysia and Singapore. Mughal wrestling, bullock cart racing and local horse racing al, also, have centuries of tradition behind them.
  • Not to mention the fascinating and colourful cultural and religious festivals and traditions. Or, of course, the ancient manufacturing skills in muslins and silks, terracotta, metal work, wood, and, naturally, jewellery, have formed a significant part of the appeal of these lands to travellers, traders, merchants and shoppers, for thousands of years.
  • Add to all that, the vast network of country roads, some dating from as early as the 14th century, even in a country where over 700 rivers, tributaries and distributaries have always, unsurprisingly, been the most favoured highways, and you have an, almost, unique experience of travel waiting for you.
  • Through, and over hills that are the last echoes of the Himalayan range, and across verdant alluvial plains, the diversity of peoples, and even the tribal origins of many, who moved here centuries, even millennia ago, and the cultural exploration becomes yet more fascinating.

When to travel?

In the days of sail, including those of the famous, ‘fishing fleet’, of young British women heading to these lands of opportunity, to, ‘hook’ an eligible associate of the East India Company, the monsoon winds in the Southern and Indian Oceans generally dictated times to head towards the lands that are now Bangladesh. Throughout the centuries, whether travelling by land, sea, roads (the Grand Trunk Road, originally built across north Indian subcontinent about 300 BCE, eventually reaching from Kabul in the west, to Chittagong, in Bangladesh, in the east!) or by air, the monsoon seasons of the region are certainly worth considering by the adventurous, cultural, traveller!

  • These days, the monsoon, with its wind and rain, may not effect international travel, but it can make internal travel, sometimes, a little uncomfortable. However, since the ‘monsoon months’ of July through September, sometimes commencing earlier, and lingering later, are also ‘Mango months’, in which this delicious fruit ripens, with over a thousand indigenous varieties, there are definite compensations for some travel discomfort.
  • Because both monsoon rains, and the arrival of the meltwaters of Himalayan snow..diminishing, these days, due to extensive robbing of the waters for economic development in India, can also flood huge tracts of land, creating great aquatic vistas, local scenery of the deltaic lands, and basins of the three great rivers, the Ganges, known in Bangladesh as Padma, the holy Brahmaputra, now mostly the waters of the great Jamuna River, and the Meghna, are considerably enhanced.
  • The season brings other benefits, quite apart from crops of a wide variety of delicious fruits, without access to agricultural lands, the rural communities create their own challenges. Spectacular boat racing, comparable with the best of South East Asian Dragon Boat racing, derived from the historic use of fast craft by both administrative and military purposes, is certainly amongst the most appealing. But such as bullock cart and horse racing and an ancient tradition of Mughal wrestling, vie for local attention with mud football, and, where patches of dry ground can be found, village cricket…that fuels the rising achievements of the national Test team!
  • Winter season, and Spring, also bring the pleasure of colourful festivals; Poila Boishakh, at the beginning of April celebrates the arrival of Spring, marking the traditional Bengali New Year; and such as the famous Dhaka New Year festival of Kite Fighting, celebrated, also, at night, with Fire Eating, echoes ancient traditions in Dhaka, ‘The City of Palaces’.
  • And then, there are the great religious festivals; Ramadan, the month of fasting in the Muslim calendar, is marked by the massive displayes of traditional foods to end the daily fast as the sunsets…and the tradition of gifts of clothing at Eid, the end of the month, ensures extravagant displays of fabrics and locally made garments.
  • Durga Puja, one of the many Hindu festivals, is, certainly , the most celebrated, dramatically and colourfully, in Bangladesh, though the ‘Festival of Light’, Diwali, on the fourth day of the Hindu New Year, vies for conspicuous drama. Buddhist traditions, a thousand years ago ruling these lands in which the faith group developed more than two thousand years ago, offer their own colouful and very social celebrations, not, of course, to forget the small Christian population in this nation of great diversity, and their celebration, also shared with most, of such as Christmas time..
  • his historic diversity, which also includes Animist and Shamanic traditions, ensures both a warm, and even spectacular, welcome to all. Not for nothing have the peoples of Bangladesh acquired a reputation for hospitality, a reputation that, surely, reaches back into the earliest times of welcoming international merchants and traders, millennia ago.
