Essentials in Bangladesh
Sundarbans: Take your Bangladesh car hire to the largest mangrove forest in the world. The forest stretches into India and is home to the Royal Bengal Tigers. With a bit of luck you'll spot one but also some leopards, King Cobras and giant saltwater crocodiles.
Cox's Bazar: Planning a trip to the beach? This is the most popular beach resort thanks to its 120km-long sandy beach. It's the longest sand beach in the world! Think of it as the Cancun of the East.
Mymensingh: If you visit one city, skip the capital and visit Mymensingh instead. With 200 years history, this historic city sits on the banks of the Brahmaputa River and is known for its cultural and political history. It's a must!
