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.

Tipping

In Bangladesh there is no standard for giving gratuities, but here are some rough guidelines. In most cases you can view a tip as a way of saying thank you, especially if the food, service or experience has met or exceeded your expectations. Usually 5% is enough, although more will not go unnoticed or unappreciated, especially if you become a regular customer at certain venues.

As you will be perceived as a wealthy foreigner no matter what your status, expect to be asked for ‘boksheesh’ (tip) more often than you should provide. The term is an all-encompassing one, and includes alms for the poor, tips for waiters, or bonuses for household or apartment staff. When to give and how much is a judgement call, and a personal decision on your part.
