Have just come back from a trip to the Himalayas with Explore - trip started in Dhaka in Bangladesh, and headed up to Bhutan via Sikkim. Bangladesh is an absolutely fascinating country to visit because so incredibly few tourists go there. Outside of Dhaka, people are fascinated to see Westerners and incredibly friendly.

Bangladesh doesn't have a lot of tourist attractions in the conventional sense - there are a few terracotta Hindu temples, and a few decaying rajbari palaces - but the real attraction is the warmth and curiosity of the Bangladeshi people.

Needless to say, I recommend visiting Bangladesh outside of the monsoon season - for much of August this year, two-thirds of the country was under water. Even in late September, we saw miles of flooded fields - and Dhaka had to close for a day in mid-September due to unusually late monsoon flooding.
