People have preconceptions about Bangladesh, but it is full of surprises. The mangrove forests and tigers of the Sundarbans National Park are Bangladesh’s most famous attraction, but the country has a host of lesser-known attractions that are waiting to be discovered. Highlights include the Buddhist remains at Paharpur and the 15th-century mosques and mausoleums of Bagerhat, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. While modern Bangladesh is majority Muslim, its hill tracts are still home to Buddhist and Christian tribal peoples, while temples in Dhaka and beyond attest to the influence of Hindu culture on the country.
Bangladesh offers many tourist attractions, including archaeological sites, historical mosques and monuments, longest natural beach in the world, picturesque landscape, hill forests and wildlife, rolling tea gardens and tribes.
