"Bakshees!!!!!!" Top 5 Page for this destination Bangladesh Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Saagar

Bangladesh Warnings and Dangers: 34 reviews and 20 photos

Twice upon leaving Bangladesh for home I have been asked for bakshees (tip or bribe) by those who do the check-in at Zia International Airport's counters. Can you believe it????
Once I was told my luggage wouldn't arrive if I didn't pay. I asked immediately for the superviser and got a uniformed policeman's attention, and that helped - but I suspect both the supervisor and the cop were part of the scam.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
