bangladesh-bd-north-tour-02

The city is the commercial hub of a still primarily rural country and growing at a tremendous rate as many Bangladeshis arrive in search of their fortune. In the morning we’ll go on a guided orientation tour to include some of the principal sights of the city including the Liberation War Museum, Lalbagh Fort and the Parliament building. The afternoon we will take a boat trip along the Buriganga river, joining a myriad of other crafts from  cargo vessels to small canoes. The country’s rivers are its lifeblood, irrigating its fertile plains, providing transport connections and even a place to live for the Bhadja (river gypsies) who move as a clan in their houseboats from river to river. One of the best places from which to observe the life of this city is from the water. Following this, we will visit the Pink Palace – an old impressive building which has been turned into a museum with a good historical collection inside. From here we will take a short tour of Old Dhaka with our local guide.

This morning we leave the bustle of the city behind and head out to a more rural landscape across the massive Jamuna bridge. At 4.8 kms long, it is the 12th longest bridge  in the world, crossing the Jamuna River and linking Eastern and Northwestern parts of Bangladesh. Travelling on across the floodplain we stop at the charming little town of Puthia famous for its historic decorated Hindu temples and the imposing Zamindar’s Palace, a fine example of a Hindu Rajbari. These substantial country houses were built by the landowning Hindu elite during the Raj era and with their eclectic mix of architectural styles from Greek to Victorian, reflected the cosmopolitan ideas of their owners. We arrive this evening in Bogra.
