Cheap flights from Bangladesh

Bangladesh is a country located in South Asia, bordered by India, Nepal, Bhutan and Myanmar. One of the world’s most densely populated nations, Bangladesh has an estimated 160 million people squeezed into its area of less than 150,000 square kilometres. Though the country’s politi-cal situation had been marked by strife, animosity between political parties and an extended pe-riod of military rule in the past, Bangladesh is today considered a Next Eleven emerging econo-my, predicted to become one of the world’s largest economies in the future.

Don’t leave Bangladesh without visiting Dhaka, the country’s capital and largest city. The beat-ing heart and economic driver of Bangladesh, Dhaka can sometimes feel like a merciless assault on the senses; with 18 million bodies in one place, the streets of Dhaka are a chaotic mix of 400,000 rickshaws, colourful billboards and banners, intensely flavoured food and hot weather. Visit the city’s majestic (but incomplete) 17th-century Lalbag Fort in Old Dhaka, as well as some of the many brightly-colored historic mosques, temples and churches scattered all around the city.

If you’re looking for a quick weekend getaway from Bangladesh, an hour long flight can get you over to neighbouring India’s Kolkata; the city is famous as the place where the remarkable Moth-er Teresa had spent much of her life. Visit the Motherhouse Convent - a museum and shrine ded-icated to the iconic nun - for an intimate understanding of the life and times of the great Mother Teresa. The Convent (where she had lived and worked within) is also the final resting place of her body. There, you can see for yourself the scantiness of her belongings and the bareness of the house one of the world’s most admired human beings had lived in without complaint.

But if you’ve time to spare and are looking for a vacation somewhere far, far away, how about a long-haul flight to Nanaimo on Canada’s Vancouver Island for some North American scenery? Nanaimo is well-known for having a diverse range of natural attractions, from the forests of neighbouring Newcastle Island, rock formations on Gabriola Island to rivers, mountains and shel-tered harbours on Vancouver Island itself.

Try your hand at deep-sea diving around Nanaimo Harbour, famous for harbouring 3 artificial reefs created from sunken ships. A dive there really is as exciting as it sounds, with colourful fish darting in and out of the barnacle-covered ruins of ancient ships. But if surface water sports is more your kind of thing, take a boat over to the nearby Newcastle Island Marine Provincial Park for some stand-up paddling, kayaking and canoeing.
