  • Hinduism in islamic Bangladesh

    Bangladesh has such an interesting history; and religious history not to forget. You can trace this in its archaeology, arts, literature and written history. Today it is seen mostly as the relatively uniform muslim half of Bengal (West bengal in India being the Hindu half).Religious backgrounds and political history are so intertwined and...

  • Buddhism in islamic Bangladesh

    In the culturally nearly all-pervasive islamic Bangladesh, there is a Buddhist minority that really stick out and retain their pride. Both slightly academically devout Bengalis and the minority peoples from the Sylhet Division border lands with India and Chittagong Hill tracts are to be found among the Buddhist minorities. Their focal points are...

  • Good coverage of Bangladesh on Google...

    Google Earth is actually a good tool for travel planning to Bangladesh. The sat photo coverage is of good detail and only the Chittagong Hill tracts seem to be more diffuse. You can locate even streets, hotels, houses and what not. For an example, check out Maheskhali Island or St. Martin's Island for a view. My life took a new turn by first...

  • Islam in Bangladesh

    The main religion of Bangladesh is Islam, and it used to be in an eastern fairly moderate Sub-Continental fashion. However, as labour migration and exposure has brought exposure to people, and Saudi financial and cultural influence has brought a degree of entrenchment and Wahabist-like views. Radical Islam is expanding and is evident as communal...

  • Get into the countryside!

    While the cities of Bangladesh can be extremely tiring on a traveller's soul and body, the countryside may just as easily have a soothing effect. The shades and hues of green penetrate every view, and the colorful people and tranquil village scenery is something not to be missed. While there is a desperate side to the Bangladeshi countryside (see...

  • Interesting advertisements

    The happy moments I have watching signage and advertisment posters, placards and boards in Bangladesh cannot be paid for by money.Sometimes the contrasts and negating is just too much.Would you fix your electric system at home by the services of this shop (photo)?

  • Bangladeshi performance arts

    I have been lucky to see many performances by professional and amateur artists. The songs and dancing of Bangladesh is beautiful and diverse, and surviving side-by-side with the Bombayization of arts through the film and music industry. There is a significant Bengali strain or artistic nationalism - some sort of search for a boundary to big...

  • Custom

    When I went through the immigration, the official worker asked me to give more info about the hotel I would stay at. I actually knew just the name which was Rose Wood Residence but I remember reading somewhere about Gulshan St. before so I just told him it's on Gulshan St. and he let me in. Fortunately that hotel happens to be on Gulshan St....

    Some travellers rate Dhaka as one of the worst cities on earth.

Fascinating to walk through the old city, to visit the markets, to...

    The chaos. Bangladesh is unlike anywhere I've ever been. India comes close but even in India I feel more at ease and there are plenty comforts of home to be found in India....I can't say the same about Bangladesh. They call Dhaka the 'City of Rickshaws' and it literally is a city full of human powered, 3 wheel bicycles hired out by the Dhaka's...
