Traffic jams are integral part of life in Dhaka- one of the most populous cities in the world


Bangladeshis love to see their streets lighted beautifully at night. Hence the wiring on the edges of important roads.

keep em coming, Id love one day to visit the Sundarbarns- legends of maneating tigers and lonely villages and all that... it's something very fairy-tale-esque, and intriguing.
Thanks :)

That mystic charm associated with The Sundarbans also exists in the minds of most Bangladeshis. It is a truly incredible journey; and although the royal bengal tigers are seen rarely (they are expert hunters, not revealing themselves unless necessary) there are many other interesting birds and animals to see.

A sea of apartments in Dhaka- the soul of Bangladesh. Also notice the countless buildings under construction. Constructions are more often labor-intensive in order to create more employment. Credit of Imtiaz Alam Beg
