Best Time To Travel To Bangladesh

We recommend travelling to Bangladesh from November to February when the temperatures aren’t too hot, and the seasonal rain hasn’t rolled in yet. There is plenty to do and see in Bangladesh, enjoy the national park of Iowachera, Hum Hum Waterfall, Amiakum Falls or try your luck spotting a Bengal Tiger on a tour through the reed-filled rivers or head out on a swamp safari. Hop on one of the famed paddlewheel steamers or get your fill of delicious street food. Don’t forget to check out the ancient mosques, palaces, explore caves, search for the best biryani, or raft the Bandarban. We know you won’t leave underwhelmed! 

Dry Season: November to March
Wet Season:  May to October
