Cox's Bazar - The beach and the beauty of Bangladesh Dhaka Reviews
Oct 08, 2007
Cox’s Bazar - the famous beach town in Bangladesh and located at a distance of about 370 km from Dhaka - is connected both by air and road from Dhaka and Chittagong.
The possible routes are direct filghts/ buses from Dhaka to Cox's Bazar or a short flight/ bus journey from Chittagong.
Sound of surfing waves, sands and seashells, temples and tribes, pagoda and pastors, and obviously the mouthwatering seafood pull tourists towards Cox’s Bazar - the world's longest, 120 kilometers, beach sloping gently down to the blue waters of the Bay of Bengal.
Places of Interest in Cox’s Bazar and neighboring locations:
In addition to the beach, Cox's Bazar and its neighboring locations have a lot of things to offer and the places deserve to be visited by the tourists.
Himchari: About 32 km South of Cox's Bazar along the beach, is a nice place for nature lovers. The waterfalls coined with serene hills draw the attention of the tourists. It’s advised to visit Himchari early in the morning by open jeep/ car through sea shore to get a thrilling experience.
Inani: It is a half an hour drive from Cox’s Bazar to reach the beach that stands on the coastline of the bay of Bengal - with the sea to the west and steep hills to the east. It’s an ideal place for sun and sands lovers.
Ramu: A representative Buddhist village, about 16 km from Cox's Bazar, stands on the highway to Chittagong. There are many monasteries and pagodas containing images of Buddha in gold, bronze and other metals mixed with precious stones. The temple on the bank of the Baghkhali river offers to see not only interesting relics and handicrafts but also a big bronze statue of Buddha measuring thirteen feet high and rests on a six feet high pedestal.
