personal experience

I had the chance to visit Bangladesh a few times in early 2019.  As I was working on an expedition ship, we only visited islands and the coastal lowlands. 

the country

With a population of some 160 million, Bangladesh is the 8th most populated country in the world . It is also the 7th most densely populated country on Earth.

nature and wildlife areas

The most famous part of Bangladesh for wildlife is the Sundarbans. This is the largest area of mangroves on the planet.

Thinking of travelling again after everything settles down? One of the first expeditions I am booked to work on is the NZ sub-Antarctics with Silversea Expeditions. And here is a shortened version of one of my lectures in a warmer part of the world.
