If you’re a travel aficionado, you’re probably tired of the same ‘travel’ recommendations to Cox Bazaar or The Sundarbans. Let’s face it, you want an adventure (place to visit in bangladesh), not a vacation. Here’s a list of the most underrated locations to go on your next escapade.
1. Nafa-Khum, Bandarban:
The Nafa-Khum waterfalls, situated on the river Sangu – are one of the largest waterfalls in the country. While the waterfalls are a sight to behold by themselves, the journey from Remarki to Nafa-Khum is one through a cloudy road, requiring the traveler to navigate through narrow and deep passageways amidst the mountains and is often credited to be a spiritual journey.
2. Birishiri, Netrokona:
Birishiri is an entirely rural experience that hasn’t been plagued by the tourism industry yet. It’s ceramic hills and crystal clear waters compel many travelers to take the painstaking yet immersive trip to this remote area of northern Netrokona.
3. Nijhum Dwip, Noakhali:
Named after it’s isolated nature, Nijhum Dwip is a small island in Hatiya Sub-Upazila. If you’re looking for an immersive and remote natural tourist experience, Nijhum Dwip is your one stop solution offering fauna, flora and the friendliest locals ever!
4. Guliakhali Sea Beach, Chattogram:
Defying traditional definitions of what sea beaches look like, Guliakhali is where the greenery meets the sea. The green carpet has many narrow grooves pierced through the middle, filling it with water during the tides.
5. Baliati Palace, Manikganj:
One of the largest colonial era zamindar palaces in Bangladesh, Baliati Palace is a greek architectural landmark divided into four blocks, surrounded by a mesmerizing pond. The Baliati Palace puts us back in history with their displays of historical relics, marble statues and Corinthian pillars and is an excellent destination for learning and recreation.
If you’re an adventurer or someone who’s simply seeking for an immersive experience – Bangladesh will serve you much better than yet another (place to visit in Bangladesh) expensive trip to some foreign land. Check these places out before the tourist industry does!
