There also seemed to be a limited choice of accommodation on booking apps compared to the amount you can see on Google Maps, and I couldn’t find an app in English for transport booking.
I did a lot of research and eventually, I contacted Razbe from Orient Eco-Tourism. I explained we wanted a local experience and asked for suggestions as to whether everything on our wishlist was doable.
We went back and forth a few times, tossing out places that required hard-to-get and expensive permits, and a couple of other places that would have escalated costs, and came up with a 22-day tour titled ‘Travel like a Local’ for a very reasonable price.
It was so fabulous. We saw and experienced sooooo much more of Bangladesh and its people than if it had been just us traveling independently.
Eusuf was with us for the first 18 days and Razbe himself joined us for the last 4. They are both extremely knowledgeable and skilled guides who are passionate about their country but realistic about its shortcomings. Razbe is a quiet soul, and Eusuf has a belly laugh that comes from his toes. He kindly invited us to his home to meet his wife and young son and is generous to a fault. The people in the minority villages all know and respect him which in turn added to our experience.
Having a guide/translator made us accessible to the locals and them to us. Meeting the people was definitely one of the highlights.
Our experience with Razbe and Eusuf has provided us with a lot more understanding of this part of the world, and honestly, the Bangladeshi people are gorgeous. It’s been one of our favorite adventures so far (in 15-plus years of constant travel and 136 countries.) But you will probably need help to access both the country and its people. We happily recommend Orient Eco-Tourism as a company you can trust to organize your visit.
He is very knowledgable guide and knows the forests and tea plantations of Sreemangal like the back of his hand.
I highly recommend hiring Razby!
A five star experience *****
Review – (Feed Back) by Tourists on This Website
“Our trip in Bangladesh, we visited about 35 days in 2009. The small town named Sreemangal became our second residence because of the hospitality offered by people living here. A big thanks to them for such hospitality. Razbe of Orient Tourism Channel took care of us very warmly. Razbe’s tour service was more than just a regular trip. He gave us very good insight and deeper understanding of every day rural life. We felt Razbe as a very knowledgeable person and good at suiting the trip according to our interest. Hope we will come back again to make a new trip with Razbe to enjoy the beautiful country.”— Vivi & Nils Babner, Sweden
“We came from Canada to visit Bangladesh. During the trip in Bangladesh, Razbe was our guide. He is very calm, patient, knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. He can speak in English well and understand our needs. He impressed us with his immense knowledge about bio diversity. He took us to Lawachara National Park, Madhabpur Lake, tea plantation and tribal communities. He is respectful to both local people and environment. He has the perfect balance of keeping locals, the travelers and environment. Reasonable price and good service I strongly recommended for the best trip in Bangladesh. Happy Eco System…. “— Roy & Anna, Canada
