Photo Gallery - From World Heritage to the Warmest Of Welcomes 

Rajshahi region in the north west is the least visited area in a country with little tourism. Like the rest of Bangladesh though, the people are very warm and extremely friendly.

The region is primarily known for it’s Islamic, Buddhist and Hindu monuments and ruins that include UNESCO World Heritage sites. And all set within the most gorgeous countryside.
