Bangladesh is one of the smallest
countries in the world. But as a
tourist destination it is one of most
lucrative location. She has the
world’s longest sandy sea
beach, Cox’s bazaar and world
largest mangrove forest Sundarban.
These two places represent
Bangladesh to the world in a new
way. The hospitable people are a
part of attracting tourism. We have
also a reach cultural heritage.
Overall we see that
Bangladeshi tourism industry is
running in a rapid way. But it
has also adverse effect like
climate change is a major factor
and Bangladesh is a developing
country but also it has to budget
a lot in tourism sector. though
having the adverse affect the
country offers a lot of attraction.
So at last we can say visit
Bangladesh before tourist
