Hi all...some questions for those familiar with Sylhet. I am going to BD for about ten days this December. Me and the missus are thinking of getting out of Dhaka for a couple of days (2 days + 2 days travel). If we went to Sylhet, where would be the best place to stay (preferably outside Sylhet city)? Would it be better to stay up north, at some place like Nazimgahr, or are there good places around Sri Mangal? How long does it take to travel between the northern border and Sri Mangal / Madhabkunda? I know there are tea gardens around Sri Mangal but if one stayed in a place like Nazimgahr, are some around there to visit as well? Thanks much for any advice!

I've never stayed at these places (because I don't need to) but Theres a parjatan motel on the airport road, it's also near malnichura tea estate. Theres a place called zakariya (city) park in khadimnagor with motel & other facilities.
Theres a cottage scheme near srimongol (fotos on flickr) but there arent that many smart places in Srimongol itself. Theres a decent hotel in moulvibazar called western plaza. srimongol tea research institute is 30 min drive from moulvibazar. moulvibazar to madhobkondo is 1.5 hrs. jaflong from sylhet town takes 45 mins. moulbibazar to sylhet takes an hour or so via the fenchugonj road (its lot more serene & scenic then the sherpur road)
You can travel directly from madhobkuno bia beanibazar to sylhet town. Did it many years ago takes hour or so?

Is there any more space to build in Goalabazar? It's so congested with little lanes etc. I have relatives living to the east of the bazar etc. Land prices have made many paper 'kutifoti's'

Manfrom, Prices are so out of control on Goalabazar, I think it's more expensive than Gulshan or Banani!! My family are from Brammom Gram in Goalabazar.

The ex-chairman is Haroon Miah. I'm pretty sure Abdal Miah is in there aswell. It's mostly a Jamaat/Shibir project with other projects in Dayamir and Kurua.

Dhaka-Sylhet Highway



The highway looks in pretty good condition. The photo is of Kurua Bazar, Osmaninogor thana.

Dusai eco resort

When dusai eco resort of moulovibazar will be completed?I think moulovibazar will be a great tourist spot after completion of the resort.but govt should build an airport in moulovibazar and Sylhet-london-sylhet direct flights should be started as soon as possible.
