2011 Destinations: Get a Bangladesh Visa for a Frugal Adventure

December 30th, 2010
Since it's almost New Year's Eve, I thought it'd be a good idea to spend the next few days looking at different destinations that travel experts have recommended for 2011. First, let's take a look at Bangladesh, a country that is definitely under-utilized by tourists at the moment. The folks over at Lonely Planet recently recommended Bangladesh as one of their top value destinations for 2011, so if you're not yet feeling the economic recovery, this Southeast Asian country might be a good choice for you. According to Lonely Planet, you can eat quite well for less than a dollar a meal and get a decent night's sleep in a hotel room for less than $10. Bangladesh features a menu of activities worthy of even the most seasoned adventure traveler: hiking through dense jungles in one of the

Today's featured UNESCO World Heritage Site is an ancient Buddhist monastery in Bangladesh. Somapura Mahavihara was built around 810 AD, during the rise of Mahayana Buddhism in the area.  Although Somapura Mahavihara, which means "Great Monastery," was intended for Buddhist monks, according to Wikipedia it eventually became an important intellectual and religious center for Buddhists, Jains and Hindus alike.   Somapura Mahavihara was part of a network of 5 major monasteries that dominated South Asia, and was an important destination for many Buddhist scholars.

April 25th, 2010

However, US visitors to Bangladesh do need to obtain a Bangladesh visa. In theory, you should be able to get a visa on arrival.

Stalk Bengal Tigers With a Bangladesh Visa

November 5th, 2009
"Tyger, tyger, burning bright In the forests of the night..." William Blake Bangladesh is a small country located on the border between India and Burma (Myanmar). The country is relatively poor and the population is dense, but it is still an interesting place to visit. The Sundarbans  (the name means "beautiful forest) is one of the chief attractions. The Sundarbans is a large mangrove forest. Bangladesh shares the Sunderbans with India, but the majority of the forest  (6000 square kilometers out of 10,000) is on the Bangladeshi side of the border. The forest is deep, dark and wet-1/3 of it is covered in water. The Ganges river dolphin swims in the fresh water, and other, less friendly creatures lurk on land. The Sundarbans is one of the last remaining strongholds of the Bengal
