Bangladesh's capital Dhaka is also the biggest city of the country. Flights to Bangladesh usually go to Dhaka. Another big city is Chittagong at the coast. The country is flat in large parts, particularly in the plains of Ganges and Brahmaputra, where the highest elevations remain below 15 m. This provokes frequently severe problems in the course of inundations or floods.
The official language of Bangladesh is Bengali, which is written in the Bengali script. The Bengali script derived from Devanagari a little less than 1000 years ago. On our map the names of Bangladesh, Dhaka and Chittagong are qoted in the Bengali script. The name of the city of Kolkata (Calcutta, West Bengal, India) is also given in the Bengali script.
Tourism has no major importance in Bangladesh. We would appreciate more detailed information, also about tourism, flights, or individual tours to Bangladesh.
