Oh how I wish these jaunts could be longer. It is possible only to get glimpses of a country when you travel for short stints. Nevertheless, making the best of the situation, the itinerary below includes the UNESCO listed Sundarbans, the largest mangrove forest, from which the Ganges and Brahmaputra exits into the sea, as well as the Bagerhat mosque city (also a world heritage site) with its 60 domes. Other highlights would be the capital, Dhaka itself, as well as a 15 hour trip downriver with the Rocket, a vintage paddle steamer reminiscent of colonial times.
