6-Day Cox's Bazar Beach and Saint Martin Island Tour

6-Day Cox
6 days
USD 311.00
Bangladesh’s pride and joy, Cox’s Bazar Beach is lauded throughout the land as if it’s a contender for one of the natural wonders of the world. It is the longest continual natural beach on the planet (125km), but a world wonder it isn’t. In fact, it’s not even the nicest beach in Bangladesh (the beaches on nearby Saint Martin Island and at Kuakata in Barisal division are far more scenic). However, Cox’s Bazar Beach is the most developed of any holiday destination in Bangladesh and as such you’ll find tourist facilities that are better than anywhere outside Dhaka. Don’t come here expecting to find a piece of southern Thailand, but if your travels are getting the better of you and you just fancy some home comforts and a bit of fresh air, consider swinging by for a couple of days.
