My heart was unexpectedly pulled in to the culture and life and people of Bangladesh when I visited. I had been to India a few months earlier and expected it to be a little like India, but what I found was an interesting mix of Indian and Chinese culture, wrapped in a unique, wide-eyed bright-eyed, welcoming places, where literally every person welcomed us with complete open arms.
You should absolutely come with us and discover the unexpected in beautiful Bangladesh. If you're looking for an off-the-beaten path destination, home to a vast complicated political history, some of the last wild tigers in the world, stunning landscapes and a cradle of economic development, Bangladesh is the place for you. Of course, the Bangladeshi people will capture your heart, just like they pulled me in, with their famous Bangladeshi hospitality all along the way.
On this trip, we'll connect you with local friends putting on conferences in a more rural area of Bangladesh. Our friends there are doing incredible work and our friend Nikki, leading the trip, will help expose you to our Bangladeshi friends in the best ways.
