About Bangladesh

If there is a color that best describes Bangladesh it is green, green, and more green. For its lush reputation, the country can thank its location on the Bay of Bengal, as well as its numerous rivers and its famous mangrove forests. The country is best discovered by boat, though the bustling (read: overwhelming) capital city of Dhaka provides endless opportunity for those who are in search of more of an urban experience. Fittingly, the Bengal tiger is the symbol of this loud, vibrant country, which is the world's fourth most populated Muslim country and among the most densely populated countries known to humankind.
