Bangladesh

Cultural melting pot and land infinite possibilities, Bangladesh is a young, dynamic, forward-looking country of staggering beauty which is dominated by pulsating capital city Dhaka, political heart of the nation. Here, marvel at the colourful rickshaws, visit the Ahsan Manzil Palace and take a boat ride on the crowded Ganges River. It is, however, outside of this metropolis in the many picturesque rural villages that the Bangladeshi character is defined. Tangail's textiles and handicrafts burst with colourful optimism, the lush tea hills of Sylhet remain untainted by the encroaching modern world whilst the pristine wilderness of the Sundarbans, the world's largest mangrove forest and home to the mighty Royal Bengal tiger and rare Gangetic dolphin, remain one of the last great wildlife refuges. Pettitts specialises in providing quality, tailor-made holidays and tours to Bangladesh.

Customer Testimonial

I have just got back from the above tour and want to let you know I had excellent service.

The boat was pristine and the food incredible and the staff and guide friendly polite and could not do too much for me.

On every part of the tour I was always met on time and throughout the service was second to none.

The hotel in Dhaka was well placed so that minimum time was wasted in the Dhaka traffic.

The tour content was good, varied and interesting and my guide added more things to see wherever possible in addition to what was on my itinerary, rearranging visits to maximise what was to see.

I will certainly recommend your services to others and Bangladesh as a country to visit.
