Dec. 10 — 

 The Globe Trekker visit to “Bangladesh” is this month’s feature.

Host Holly Morris embarks on an adventure through one of the most populated places on the planet, a tough but rewarding country overflowing with life, culture and incredible hospitality. Beginning in the capital Dhaka, seventh largest city in the word, Holly negotiates the hectic rickshaw traffic, boards a Rocket Paddle Steamer and takes a 24-hour journey to Sundarbans National Park. She then encounters man-eating Bengal tigers and braves giant bees in search of honey before travelling to the river deltas and flood prone northern flat lands.  In the east, Holly visits a snake charmer’s market and the tea plantations of Sylhet. Finally, she catches a sleeper train south to the largest continuous natural beach in the world and the infamous ship breaking yards of Chittagong before getting some well-earned R&R at the seaside resort of Cox’s Bazaar.
