"Go before the tourists come".....

This slogan might already be a cliche, but it's so right!

After spending 6 weeks in the touristic parts of India, I was suspicious of everyone friendly who approached me.

Well, the Bangladesh people are so much different. They didn't look at me in terms of $$$, but (almost) always treated me as a well respected guest or friend! In 2 weeks time I met hardly any tourists, and sometimes it's quite difficult to deal with situations or find the way, but always local people (sometimes too many) showed up with a helping hand or invited me for a cup of tea.

Bangladesh is also a beautiful country. I didn't see much of it in 2 weeks, but I'd really want to go back!!!

    Bangladesh is definately moving nearer to the top of my "places to go list". A lot of what I have read lately seems be in agreement with your views of India.

    I know exactly what you mean about India, and felt the same relief in Pakistan. I'll read the rest of your page with interest!

    It's quite amusing that local people treated foreign tourists in this way. sometimes we're impressed by local conditions and social customs instead of astonishing scenery. *-*

    Great Bangladesh page. I only spent one night there en route to Yangon, but someday I'd like to go back and explore.
