Bangladesh travel guide

Beaches · Historic Sites · Architectural Buildings
Some of Asia's longest rivers run through Bangladesh, forming the world's largest and most fertile delta. In addition to the Ganges, sacred to Hindus, hundreds of other waterways rank among the top tourist attractions in Bangladesh, offering access to lengthy beaches, islands, coral reefs, and the biggest mangrove forest in the world. In this densely populated country, giant urban centers house many different ethnic groups, creating a patchwork of cultures that makes this part of the world so intriguing to tourists. Consider beginning your tour of Bangladesh in Dhaka, a hectic city packed with old temples and swanky eateries serving a growing population of international expats.

Gift of the Nile
The land of pharaohs, pyramids, sphinxes, and papyrus, Egypt needs little by way of introduction. Visitors find more than a textbook readout of ancient history when visiting the country--the power, scale, art, and mysticism of its centuries-old culture bleed out from each landmark attraction and seep into the everyday life. Bustling markets, the slow-flowing Nile, the vast desert, and inspiring archeological sites often sit right alongside palaces of great excess and historical importance. All ensure you have plenty to see and do during your vacation in Egypt. In the wake of the Arab Spring in 2011, travel to certain areas where conflict and terrorism are deemed likely remains inadvisable for foreign visitors.
