Cheap Flights to Bangladesh

Crisscrossed by rivers that roar, babble, and stream across this country, Bangladesh is one of the greenest places on earth. Dotted with magical temples, frenetic cities, dense jungle, serene wetlands, and unique hamlets, this is a remarkable nation with tons to offer any intrepid traveller.

Things to do in Bangladesh

Discover the wonders of Bangladesh by ticking off its most famous attractions. Visit the UNESCO listed Paharpur, one of the most important Buddhist temples in the world. In the past, this complex functioned as a monastery city, and the intellectual centre for Bengal.

Then find your way to the Puthia Temple Complex, a series of prominent Hindu temples, notable for the beautiful terracotta work, the gardens, and pretty ponds that populate the grounds.

Make sure you spend some time in the capital, Dhaka, where you can see Lalbagh Fort, rendered tangible by the ingenious Mughals, and the Ahsan Manzil Palace, that is now an excellent museum. Or go to Chittagong, the port city where you can pay a call to the beautiful Hill Tracts, and see the indigenous tribal groups of this area, or head out to Cox’s Bazar, a long sandy beach, and a place to enjoy the warm weather of this nation.

If you can, make the trip out to Gaur, a medieval city that lies in ruins along the Ganges River, but its marvellous gates, towers, and monuments still stand, and you’ll find that these crumbling buildings have an otherworldly atmosphere.

For a chance to spy the infamous Royal Bengal Tigers, you must plan a visit to the Sundarbans, a region of sweeping mangrove forests, where the mysterious animal can hide among the trees.

Best time to visit Bangladesh

·         Bangladesh is best visited during its cooler months, generally November to February. The monsoon season has passed, the weather is dry, and the temperature is at a pleasant 25°C. Though March and April are also good months to travel, the heat starts to go up substantially seeing days around 30°C, which can be a little oppressive when sightseeing.

·         May to September, and into October, the wet season arrives in earnest. This means a rise in humidity and lots of rain.

Flights to Bangladesh

·         The largest and busiest airport in the country is by far the Shahjalal International Airport (DAC) in the energetic city of Dhaka.

·         The journey to Dhaka is not as long as you’d think, and from major cities in Australia, you can get there with only one layover, in cities like Singapore (SIN), Bangkok (BKK), and Kuala Lumpur (KUL).

·         Thai Airways, Singapore Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Bangkok Airways, Dragonair, Cathay Pacific, Qantas, and several more operators run routes out to Bangladesh.

Currency

·         Bangladeshi Taka (BDT).

Visa requirements

·         You will absolutely need a visa to travel to Bangladesh if you are an Australian citizen, but you may be eligible for a visa on arrival. For information regarding your eligibility, costs and types of visas allowed, and conditions of entry, please visit the Smart Traveller site dedicated to travel to Bangladesh.
