You can witness enormous mountains on one side and the swift sea on the other portion. This view is from the peak point of himchori which is astounding and a photogenic spot.
But you gotta buy a ticket which costs around 20-50 bucks only in order to trek for a while to get lost in such ecstasy! #himchori #himchori_hill #coxsbazar
said to be established in 1749, this sizeable buddhist monastery in cox's bazar contains several wooden shrines and a golden buddha image alleged to be 2,500 years old. next to the monastery is a buddhist village resided by the rakhine (arakanese) community, an ethnic group with origins in neighbouring myanmar.
the monastery's entrance is always locked for security as there had been cases in the region where fanatical mobs barged into the temple grounds and set the shrines on fire in an attempt to sow communal discord. the man holding the keys speaks fluent english and doubles as a guide by showing visitors around the vast temple complex.
Favorite picture of my Bangladesh trip. Story behind this one below 🤙
I was heading out with some local fishermen and we came across these kids literally in the middle of the ocean.
They didn't have any engine just some paddles so they hooked on to our boat and we dragged them a couple of kilometers until the rope snapped.
The boat that they were in looked like it is going to drown because they caught soooo much fish. Hope they made it safely back to the shore.

Kaptai Lake is the largest man made lake in Bangladesh. It is located in the Kaptai Upazila under Rangamati District of Chittagong Division. The lake was created as a result of building the Kaptai Dam on the Karnaphuli River, as part of the Karnaphuli Hydro-electric project
That feeling when the waves hit your feet is priceless 😻

The average traffic speed in Dhaka is around 7 kmph (4 mph). However, according to a World Bank report, the number was 21 kmph (13 mph) just 10 years ago. This ever growing megacity of 18 million people suffers from major infrastructural undercapacity. Even the trains are often overwhelmed by passengers, thereby some choose to travel on the roof to make it on board.
