Taken from my trip to Bangladesh, Jan 2008
Roads in Bangladesh are generally good with very little traffic.

Airport road. I traveled on a modern " double-decker" bus from Baridhara to central Dhaka, it took only 15 minutes.

Cox's Bazaar to Teknaf . Then....to St. Martin Island !!



Our bus to Teknaf




On the way from Cox's Bazaar to Teknaf. The journey takes 2 hours and we passed the lush greenery of Bangladesh's countryside and many small towns.

Really? I always thought Bangladesh was one of the most (if not the) densest countries in the world.

Yeah, but it's also kinda poor, so it's not like the majority owns a car and commute to work with it, like in the western world, as we call it.

Dhaka and Chittagong have many cars , but almost all Bangladeshis ( even upper and Middle-class ) make inter-city journeys by bus.

That's why there are very few cars on inter-city roads ( but many cars in urban highways ).
