Bangladesh

INTRODUCTION

Rich in color with friendly, passionate people and a beautifully lush countryside is how most people who visit Bangladesh describe it. The traditional music of Bangladesh is very much the same as that of India and tribal dances are very popular among the villages and definitely amongst the tourists. Bangladesh is a stunning land of flaming sunsets, abundant wildlife, historically significant sights and a unique and varied culture. Bangladesh does not have a lot of conventional tourist 'sights'. The fascination of the country lies more in observing life going on around you. It is being amongst the people, touching in a small way their everyday lives that is the greatest attraction for most travelers.
