Tourism in Bangladesh
Most of the country consists of the alluvial plains of the huge Ganges-Brahmaputra river system, the largest delta in the world. To the east lie the modest peaks of the Chittagong Hill Tracts. The seaside tourist town of Cox’s Bazar boasts the world’s longest unbroken stretch (120 km) of sandy beach, sloping gently down into the blue water of the Bay of Bengal. In Dhaka (north central), the historic capital city of Bangladesh, one can visit the uncompleted 17th-century Lalbagh Fort, the stately Ahsan Manzil palace and museum (sometimes called The Pink Palace), the Chota Katra, and many mosques.
