Itinerary

DAY LOCATION(S) HOTEL MEALS DESCRIPTION
Day 1
Dhaka, Bangladesh
Westin Dhaka Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Arrive in Bangladesh’s thriving capital, Dhaka, one of Southeast Asia’s most major cities, and head to your hotel. We recommend the humble-yet-comfortable Westin Dhaka. Once settled in, head out to check out some of Dhaka’s must-see stops, including the National Museum and Lalbagh Fort. Relax for the evening at your hotel.

Day 2
Dhaka, Bangladesh
Westin Dhaka Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Spend today touring around the city, starting with Old Dhaka. Old Dhaka’s historic architecture conjures memories of times past when Dhaka was one of the largest and most prosperous cities of the Indian subcontinent. Next, spend some time at Tara Masjid, also known as Star Mosque, before embarking on a rickshaw tour of the city - a traditional experience you won’t soon forget!

Day 3
Sylhet, Bangladesh
Rose View Hotel Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Head to Sylhet today, a major urban center of Bangladesh that also happens to be the hub of the country’s tea industry. See the tea plantations from atop a bicycle, on a tea estates cycling tour. Next, sample the fine flavours of Bangladeshi tea in a five-color tea tasting. Finish off the day by making a trip to visit a local hill tribe, before heading back to your room at the Rose View Hotel.

Day 4
Chittagong, Bangladesh
Peninsula Chittagong Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast, check out of your hotel this morning, before taking off for Chittagong. Situated on the Bay of Bengal, Chittagong is the second-most populous city in Bangladesh. Check in to your  room at the Peninsula Chittagong, and get acquainted with your surroundings. Today, you’re off to see the Shrine of Bayazid Bostami, a tomb that is considered to be a holy place, attracting many pilgrims and visitors daily. Wind down your day with a visit to Pahartali Lake, a picturesque area surrounded by nature.

Day 5
Chittagong, Bangladesh
Peninsula Chittagong Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Get into the true heart of Bangladeshi culture today by visiting a Chittagong Hill Tribe, who live a very basic lifestyle, largely uninfluenced by the outside world. See how the tribe members experience their day-to-day lives, growing their own food, weaving their own clothing, and more.

Day 6
Chittagong, Bangladesh
The Sundarban National Park Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Get ready for a thrill today - you’re heading to the largest single block of mangrove forest in the world; also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Sundarbans. The National Park here is also home to a tiger reserve. If you are lucky, you can see the tigers up-close on a visit to the reserve, and visit a local village, where you can interact with the locals to get a taste for their daily life. Spend the night in simple accommodations.

Day 7
Chittagong, Bangladesh
None Breakfast

After breakfast today, you’ll check out of your hotel and fly to Dhaka, where you can check in for your connecting flight home or to your next destination.

The Remote Lands Guides were excellent. The cars used for transportation were roomy and clean. The hotels were 5 star and their attention to detail was over the top. There was only perfection from the people we met and it was also comforting to know that our trip was being carefully monitored by Remote Lands supervisors every step of the way. We would recommend Remote Lands to anyone needing exceptional service in Asia.
