Bangladesh Basic Facts

Remnants of civilization in the greater Bengal region date back four thousand years, when the region was settled by Dravidian, Tibeto-Burman, and Austro-Asiatic peoples. It was only in 1971 when the Bengalees, the majority people of the land, won their freedom. The country is now a peaceful abode to various ethnic and religious denominations. A small country with more than 160 million population, Bangladesh, is poised to graduate to a middle income country.

The Sundarbans

A UNESCO heritage, the Sundarbans mangrove forest, one of the largest such forests in the world (140,000 ha), lies on the delta of the Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna rivers on the Bay of Bengal. The site is intersected by a complex network of tidal waterways, mudflats and small islands of salt-tolerant mangrove forests, and presents an excellent example of ongoing ecological processes. This is the home of the majestic Royal Bengal Tigers.

National Mausoleum

Located at Savar, an industrial suburb about 22 miles northwest of Dhaka, the monument stands as an iconic structure, encapsulating the nation's gratitude toward the men and women who sacrificed their lives for the Bengalis' right to self-rule. In March and December every year, thus, the National Martyrs' Monument becomes the epicentre of the nation's collective rituals in celebrating nationhood.

It depends on what you are looking for. Ideally, winter (November to February) is nice with its mild temperature range from 12–15 to 30 degrees in celsius. However, this is also a high season for tourists who like to enjoy a sunny day on the sea beaches. This is also the period one can go trekking in the hill tracts or visit the Sundarbans, the mangrove forest. Another good season is the monsoon, although the rainfall may hamper your plans, the hill tracts become lush with greenery. The rivers are flowing at their fullest, and if you are kind of a person who likes rain (like many Bangladeshis) you may enjoy this season. April is good if you would want to attend the Bengali new year festivities. If you are visiting in late spring or in the Summer, be prepared for the hot and humid weather. However, this is by and large compensated by the availability of summer fruits.
