Where to Stay and Visa Information

Do bear in mind that this is an impoverished State, you can find accommodations ranging from 5 stars to very low quality. Do research your place before choosing. Visa on Arrival. The government in Bangladesh does make it easier to try and attract more tourists so visa on arrival is possible depending on your nationality. You must show your departure information.
