My time in Bangladesh in December 2017 was a whirlwind and full of surprises (both good and occasionally uncomfortable).14 million people became refugees as many Hindu families moved from Pakistan to India and Muslims from India to Pakistan.
Younger people (eg students) are more likely to speak English than the older generation. One of the more frustrating elements of travel around Bangladesh is that travelling between different regions of the country all too often means stopping back in Dhaka.
English is not widely spoken, which can make independent travel difficult in more rural areas.
Bangladesh can also be raw: along with the beautiful landscapes, people and places, expect to see a lot of poverty, and a huge amount of pollution and dirt.
Processing time was slow (the embassy held on to my passport for nearly 10 days) so plan well in advance! Another option from India would be to get your Bangladesh visa in Kolkata (Calcutta). Until 1947, Bangladesh used to be part of India and was known as “East Bengal”.
In addition to the twice weekly Maitree Express, there’s also a train that runs from Kolkata to Khulna, which can be useful for heading straight to the south west of Bangladesh from India. In 1947 when India gained independence from British colonial rule, the sub-continent was also partitioned into India and Pakistan, leading to the largest migration crisis in history.
