vaccinations for travelling here
One the least touristy destinations in the world, Bangladesh is a beautiful country bordering India and Myanmar. The Sundarbans Mangrove Forest is the largest mangrove forest on earth and a UNESCO world heritage site, located between two neighbouring countries – Bangladesh and India. The Chittagong Hill-Tracts is an Instagrammer’s delight, with lush green hills and the beautiful Sangu river in the area. For archeology enthusiasts, Paharpur is home to the impressive Somapuri Mahabhihara, a large Buddhist monastery dating back to the 8th century, also a UNESCO world heritage site.
Additional Travel Information for Bangladesh
The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advises against all but essential travel to the Chittagong Hill Tracts. This does not include the city of Chittagong or other parts of Chittagong Division. There is a high terrorist threat alert in Bangladesh at present, with travel during the monsoon season (June to September) being particularly hazardous. Bangladesh lies in a zone of seismic activity, so there is a risk of earthquakes in the region. Mosquito-borne diseases like dengue fever occur all year round. There’s been a significant increase in the number of cases of dengue fever across Bangladesh, including in Dhaka. You should take steps to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes. UK health authorities have classified Bangladesh as having a risk of Zika virus transmission.
