To Bangladesh and beyond

ToBangladesh.com is not a travel agency; it is a gateway, bridging the gap between you and the local service providers throughout the country. It is a concept, an initiative, infusing the combined resources of Grace Tours, based in Copenhagen, Denmark, and Interspeed Media, a Dhaka based advertising company.

Via this website you will not only be able to have an overview of available destinations within Bangladesh and different levels of accommodation, (on our website, you can choose from a wide variety of accommodations – homestay hideaways, heritage hotels & palaces, rural farms, beach villas, jungle lodges, spa retreats, and even tree-houses!), but you will also be able to contact locally based hotel owners and tour guides, ask questions, provide answers and buy travel products and services all in one place.

Health & Security

Health
As is the case anywhere in the world, your local travel doctor should be your first point of call before your visit to Bangladesh and this is best done a few months in advance so you can get the required immunisations and advice. Road accidents are very common in Bangladesh so be aware and do what you can to reduce risks: try to travel during daylight hours and try to wear a seatbelt (although these are seldom available). Noise pollution is another major problem in Dhaka and Chittagong, so if you have sensitive ears bring a pair of earplugs.

Take out comprehensive medical and travel insurance. This should cover medical treatment and evacuation, accidents, cancelled flights and stolen cash, credit cards, passport and luggage. You should check any exclusion, and that your policy covers you for the activities you want to undertake.

Security
Bangladesh’s security situation can be viewed from two perspectives. If you’re at all an adventurous person who likes the unexplored and unknown, then Bangladesh can be a perfectly safe place to travel when taking local advice, and even female travellers have braved the country solo. But if you’re the person responsible for writing government travel advisories, which will likely affect the decisions of thousands of potential visitors, you will find no shortage of fodder to help you describe Bangladesh as a security nightmare. For travellers, the bottom line is that Bangladesh is a safe country in which to travel, with a caveat: take local advice if unsure. Dhaka is a safe place, when you know how to play by its rules. Nonetheless, there have been incidences of muggings and robberies, and bag snatching among the expatriate community, particularly in the Gulshan and Mohammadpur areas, and particularly towards single females, moving around at night.
