Bangladesh is a very densely populated country in South Asia. It shares a very long border with neighbor India and with Myanmar, at east.

Bangladesh was the Eastern part of Pakistan after the split between India and Pakistan in 1947. The Bengali then had a second struggle for independence with the Pakistanis, but now they have their own country. Independence from Pakistan was achieved in 1971.

Dhaka is the capital city of Bangladesh. It is the largest city and the fastest growing city as well. It is the best starting point for travels in the country. In the south, near the Myanmar border, Chittagong is the second largest and fastest growing city. It is a pretty place with tombs and mosques to visit. Not to mention the natural sights just miles away from the city.

Cox's bazar is known to have the longest running shore-line in the world. This city has since been developed into an obvious touring spot. During the tourist season, reservations to hotels are done months in advance, otherwise the hotels closest to the shore have to get off the list.
