The present Government is endowed with twenty first century values and objectives. The Government is committed   towards the  process of  creating  conditions  for making Bangladesh a prime investment destination and tourist attraction.

Bangladesh is a land of magnificent beauty, the heritage of a natural splendor  and  rich and diversified  historical legacy that dates back to the 7th Century. Unspoiled and often unexplored,  Bangladesh offers the most exciting experiences to visitors ranging from closeness with nature at its pristine best to a cultural  trip into remnants  of ancient  and past civilizations.
Tourist  attractions  includes - Cox's bazaar with the world's longest unbroken (120 kms) beach, Buddhist temples of Ramu and a visit to the coral island of St  Martin's.  The Sundarban Forests are the  home of the famous  Royal Bengal Tiger and has been declared to be a world nature heritage site by UNESCO.  Paharpur , an archaeological  site of a 8th Century Buddhist  Monastery was known to  be the largest Buddhist  seat of learning South of  Himalayas. Paharpur has been declared a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO.   In Mainamati and Salban one can find Buddhist relics and remnants of  Buhddhist Viharas (Monasteries). This has revealed that once Buddhism  flourished in Bangladesh especially under the Chandra and  Deb dynasties  from 8-12th Century AD.

Bangladesh beckons. You can never forget  the enduring beauty and charm of Bangladesh and its people.
